And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation - some fact of my life - unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept that person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed be at this moment. Nothing, absolutly nothing happens in GOD,S world by mistake. Until I could accept my alcoholism I could not stay sober, unless I accept life completly on life,s terms, I cannot be happy, I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes.
The word "attitude" means the way we think and behave.
