rule-62Rule 62: “Don’t take yourself too damn seriously.” – Tradition 4, AA

Rule 62

Life can get ahead of us sometimes and before we know it we are fresh out of the spirituality that holds together. All of a sudden everything is super serious and seriously overwhelming.

Stop – easy does it.

There are plenty of things we can worry over, get frustrated at, or be in fear of, but what good does it do? It only feeds that disease part of the brain that validates those fears and thus creating more worry, fear, and chaos in our lives.

Take a step back and relax a little.

We worry over little things and we worry over big things, but our Higher Power has all those things and will take care of us when we reach out and rely on him/her. This can sometimes be difficult when we are going through big things, but it is especially important when those big things come our way. Enjoying the little blessings in our lives when we are going through trials and tribulations also helps remind us that not all things are bad and that letting go and allowing our lives to just flow is all part of that rule 62.

Just for today, stop taking yourself so damn seriously and enjoy the little things.
