Do I realize the difference between resignation and realistic acceptance?

Today I Pray

May I not set my sights unrealistically high, expect too much. May I look backwards long enough to see that my self-set, impossible goals were the trappings of my addiction; too often I ended up halfway there, confronted by my own failure. Those "foiled-again," "I've-failed-again" feelings became monumental excuses to give in to my compulsion, which blanketed my miseries. May I avoid that sick old pattern. May I be realistic.

Today I Will Remember

Good is good enough.

Bump; thanks so much, Kris.

Thank you so much for the prayers, altoids; they mean so much.

You are welcome. I remember in my early days on SR, someone was going thru a bad time, so they started listing everyone on here. That helped me then. I think about you all doing whatever it is you, those little glimpses into your lives, and just offer up a prayer when that happens. It really did keep me in a safe place in those early days and I found that safety net (although that is still there) and been replaced with immense gratitude. I would NOT be here on this path in the land of sanity without SR. Eternally grateful.

Almost blew it on day 30. Put a bottle of wine in my shopping cart at the store. Within 2 minutes it was back on the shelf. I ask for another 24 please. I want peace in my life and wine cannot provide that.
