    JANUARY 9 Reflection for the Day

    In the past, and sometimes even now, I automatically have said, “Why me?” when I’m trying to learn that my first problem is to accept my present circumstances as they are, myself as I am, and the people around me as they are. Just as I finally accepted my powerlessness over gambling, so must I accept my powerlessness over people, places and things.

    Am I learning to accept life on life’s terms?

    Today I Pray
    May I learn to control my urge to control, my compulsion to manage, neaten, organize, and label the lives of others. May I learn to accept situations and people as they are instead of as I would like them to be. Thus, may I do away with the ongoing frustrations that a controlling person, by nature, faces continually. May I be entirely ready to have this defect of character removed.

    Today I Will Remember
    Control for the controller (me).
