All feelings are OK. I used to believe there were good and bad feelings that the bad feelings needed to go away and were unacceptable.  As I grow in program, I realize more and more that ALL feelings are OK. I can wake up happy, sad, frustrated or angry just as I can wake up tired, energized, not feeling well or full of life. All feelings are a part of me and a part of my growth. Can I accept that for today that whatever I'm feeling is exactly where God wants me to be? I answer yes, embrace the feelings, get in touch with my feelings and then move forward one day at a time.

Worry is one of those character defects of mine which is so hard to let go of. However, it has to be one of the most counter productive defects that I tend to hold onto. Worry does not fix, change or give me the ability to manage situations as it only causes me more disruption in my life and 9 times out of 10 physical ramifications start presenting themselves. One of my favorite readings is in the Voices of Recovery where it states "God, take this problem from me, and don't give it back to me unless I need to do something about it." p 243.  I have to admit that it is not always the first place I go when I begin to worry, but the more I practice, the better I get at it. When I'm posed with a problem, challenge, issue or decision if I can look at my part and what I can control or change I need to take those steps. Then it is time to turn it over to my Higher Power and let him do his thing. The longer I'm in program, the more I realize there are so many things out of my control and it's a great weight off my shoulder when I can turn to my Higher Power and ask him to take over. I re-commit to myself to put turning things over to my Higher Power first before I take myself down a rabbit hole that leads me nowhere.
