I must keep my magic magnifying mind on my acceptance
and off my expectations, for my serenity is directly proportional
to my level of acceptance. When I remember this, I can see
I’ve never had it so good. Thank God for A.A.!

- Alcoholics Anonymous, (Acceptance Was The Answer) p. 420

Thought to Ponder
My disappointments are equal to my expectations.

AA-related 'Alconym'
A A  =  Acknowledge Acceptance.

Morning all and thanks so very much. Susan, very grateful recovered alcoholic by Grace. The higher my expectations, the lower my serenity. One of the few things from early sobriety that I remember being drilled in to me. If I expect a certain outcome, and it doesn't happen, I am not a happy camper. Doesn't make for peace and serenity. If I accept fact...what is, right now and attempt to remain in that position, I am generally fairly calm about things. I can stay in the moment and as our Big Book mentions stop wasting time on stuff that I have no control over anyways. I can enjoy, or at least be present now. Tricky practice but with much practice can get back to that place quicker and quicker. So blessed to have been shown. Thanks all. Continued Grace and growth.
