Seeking God's Will in the New Year

What better way to start out the New Year than to seek God's Will. Duh.

I've been fighting with myself for a week now about how to fix two major relationships in my life as well as how to get a client to pay me. And guess what? All the crazy thinking has gotten me absolutely nowhere except crazier and crazier.

So this morning I read in "Hope for Today" about seeking God's Will and the Power to Carry That Out. Step 11 was like a whole new concept for me, even after practicing it for years and years, even with the same relationships I'm trying to fix now.

It's amazing how fast I slid backwards into that old insanity. But today, I'm back to serenity simply by giving it over and asking for direction and then getting on with my day, my life, a brand new year!

A special thank you to a very special Al-Anon friend who called me today and reasoned things out with me for over an hour. What a piece of heaven that was for both of us!
