Inversely Proportional



the best thing

of all for me

is to remember

that my serenity is

inversely proportional

to my expectations.”


BB,   p. 452


Just when you expected that the meeting might begin on time,

God allowed a drunken late-comer to enter the room

and disrupt the start of the meeting.

Choice;  get upset and loose your serenity

or smile, maintain your peace of mind.

and thank God for the message,

but for the grace of God that could be me, again.

Expectations are plans

and if you want to make God laugh

tell Him your plans,

tell Him what you expect

to happen in this life.

Expectations are resentments waiting to be born.

Today, keep your serenity, accept life on God’s terms,

no expectations, no resentments.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
