Courage to Change:

Today I seek to become a little more accepting of myself, a little more comfortable in my own skin. Although it is important to recognize and admit my limitations and flaws, only my Higher Power can remove them.

Condemning my imperfections has never enhanced my appreciation of life or helped me to love myself more. Perhaps I can let go of all condemnation for this one day. I will recognize that I am on a spiritual path of self-improvement. Every tiny step I take on that path moves me closer to wholeness, health, and serenity.

If I become impatient with myself, I can examine my expectations.
Perhaps I expect recovery to happen overnight. I will take time today to acknowledge my efforts and to trust the process of the Al-Anon program.

Today’s Reminder:

Al-Anon is a gentle, healing program. I will remember to be gentle with myself today, trusting that the healing will come.

“Today I can accept myself for what I am because I know that whatever happens, I have a Higher Power and a group of people who will love me anyway.”
