One of the first things that drew my attention when I came into the rooms of Nar-Anon was that the members who seemed to have the most serenity shared a lot about letting go. Even though there might be chaos all around them, they still talked about letting go and trusting in a Higher Power to maintain sanity and peace of mind.
I am learning that I have to let go of things as well as people. For instance, I have no control over the public transit train that I take to work. I have no control over whether the train gets me to work on time, just as I know I have no control over the addict in my life. A Nar-Anon member once said, “We have to let go of the elephants while the ants march up our legs.”
Is it possible that there is a better plan for my life if I am willing to surrender?
Thought for Today: I have noticed that when I do allow myself to Let Go and Let God, there is peace and serenity. The outcome, in most cases, turns out much better when I let my Higher Power have control.“We have found that the working of these steps will bring the solution to practically any problem.” ~ Nar-Anon Blue Booklet
