For me, being Serene means not being afraid.

Serenity Practice: Open Mindedness...
Program Principle: Change demands openness...


"Be open-minded, but not so open-minded that your brains fall out."
Stephen A. Kallis, Jr., Contemporary American writer

The Serenity Project


My cold seems to be gone. Normally (while I was still drinking) I'd get a cold which would turn into a sinus infection that would end up as bronchitis or pneumonia. However, this time, I got the cold, continued to work everyday but got lot's of sleep and medicated only with Alka seltzer Cold Plus and chicken soup. (not together) Exactly 7 days later the cold is gone. It's a miracle. I have to admit I was miserable during those 7 days. Another miracle is I'm getting a tooth pulled on Thursday and I'm not afraid. That I'm looking for a new apartment and I'm not stressed out. Yet. That everything in my life is going well and that I'm able to cope on a daily basis with all of it. I don't have to or want to hide in a bottle. That's the real miracle.

It is truly a miracle. Don't know the how's or the why's, but it is a miracle.
