The eleventh step promises

As we go through the day we pause, when agitated or doubtful, and ask for the right thought or action. We constantly remind ourselves we are no longer running the show, humbly saying to ourselves many times each day “Thy will be done.” We are then in much less danger of excitement, fear, anger, worry, self-pity, or foolish decisions. We become much more efficient. We do not tire so easily, for we are not burning up energy foolishly as we did when we were trying to arrange life to suit ourselves. It works-it really does. Alcoholics Anonymous p.88

For sure I had a time in my life when I was sure the above was a croc of shit. I mean, come on, pause when agitated!! It all sounded nothing short of impossible. Well I can tell ya, what I once thought impossible has for sure become a working part of my day. Fancy having a go at the impossible? Give it a try, you might be surprised.
