I really must stay away from junk.
I stay away from those cookies (which I still *want,* like the plague. Because of how my emotions suffer after.
Well, I have to wonder how much of this extended down AND nervous time is due to the junk (licorice and a crunchy snack from 7-11) last night!
NOT worth it.
Mainly – I CAN stay away when is for my *emotinos.*

Also – I don’t want to live in fear anymore INCLUDING like must rest because so much this week and omg if I don’t get enough sleep…

Reading Aug 31 2018

For Today:

Man is as full of potentiality as he is of impotence. George Santayana

Hope and hopelessness are part of my disease. Hope tells me there is a better way; hopelessness says, “What’s the use?” I recognize hopelessness for what it is: my mind protecting me from disappointment. Hopelessness served at one time, but I don’t need that device today. I have a Higher Power that gives me everything I need. I am willing to continue to cast out old ideas, to keep turning my life over to the care and protection of God. Therein lies hope.

For today: My potential is in direct proportion to my willingness to let go of the shackles of self-will, to get out of my own way. On one end of the scale, I accomplish wonders; on the other, I am powerless.

My takeaway:
I like this. My new – haven’t had one for a long time – sponsor suggesting reading it.
“I have a Higher Power that gives me everythign I need. I am willing to continue to cast out old ideas,
to keep turning my life over the the care and protection of God.
Therein lies hope.
— But I DON’T think I have to “let go of self-will” totally! We’ll see… I *think* we just mean different things by it, this reading and I.
