finding Serenity ...
Sat, 10-04-2008 - 7:30pm

how do you do it, ladies? how do you find Serenity in the midst of an alcoholic who is trying to provoke you? he's trying to get a rise out of you? How do you maintain your serenity?

I can't seem to keep my cool.

Tell me how to manage the anger. And the bitterness and the fear.

I am headed to my 4th alanon meeting in about an hour, here. I am wondering also, how to get a Sponsor through Alanon. Thank you!

How about

Grant me the Serenity

To accept the things I cannot change

The courage to change

The things I can

And the wisdom to know the difference.

Now say that over and over and over until you can get to the meeting.

As for sponsors....just ask someone whose message you like.
