When I was drinking, I wouldn't let go until it had scratch marks all over it.

"Acceptance is usually more a matter of fatigue than anything else." - David Foster Wallace. Today I know it's OK to accept life on life's terms without endless struggling, well before I am worn out and fatigued...that I can let go of trying to direct everyone and everything. I am allowed to relax and let others live their lives. All of this over controlling used to make me want to escape life by drinking. Today I am grateful I can let go and let God run the show. If I need to take care of something, I face the challenge, do my best, but I don't expect everything to go my way all the time.


Today I will remember to let go of what I can't control.
