Think Bigger Than Yourself!

There has been many times where I have gotten completely stressed out and nervous about an outcome over something in my life. I will think and think and think about all the possible scenarios. Sometimes I will go even deeper into that thinking and obsess over all the wrongs things that will happen. Not may happen, but certainly will happen, because that is where my head likes to go. Then I stop and think again.

I reflect about how I am not in control of literally almost anything. I think about how far I have come in life and my recovery, and how I certainly did not do it alone. I ponder about how all those times I thought for sure there was no solution in sight, only to be presented with one. Then I remember that I am not alone and that there is something bigger than me out there running the show.

Phew! What a relief. I am not 100% sure what or who my Higher Power is, but I do know one is there. I know because others had shared their experience with me on how their Higher Power worked in their lives. Then, I had my own Higher Power that I could see working in my life. It was real and it’s been my experience. I love that thought, because then I don’t actually have to overthink and fix everything all the time. I can let go and let my Higher Power do the work. It’s really freeing. I am not in charge and I just have to remember that sometimes.

Just for today, think bigger than yourself today!
