When Life Isn't Going My Way.

I have never been a patient person. I've had to learn how to practise patience with the continual process of letting go. Then letting go again the next time that thought arises. And the next time. And again. Some days, I just can't find a way to let go which will allow me to step away from that train of thought, so I ask my Higher Power to take it; I can't get distance from it on my own.

I have to let go of wanting to "control the details." When I want to control the uncontrollable, I will be filled with frustration.

Patience requires that I trust I will be looked after, guided, fufilled. When I truly trust, amazing things happen - I've seen them manifested in my own life.

Today, I'm going to work to let go with a light heart, and an open mind.


  1. Me, too. And do the next right thing.

  2. Thanks for this. I needed to read it today. A sober but dry drunk friend is having a lot of problems lately. I know what needs to be done but keep my mouth shut. He has a Higher Power and I'm not it.

  3. I needed this as well. My higher power is all that is left for me to believe in. Can I pray that he leaves?
