Acceptance is the answer to ALL my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some peson, place, thing or situation-some fact of my life--unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I accept the person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment.
Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake. Until I accept my disease of AlZ, I could not stay sober, unless I accept life completely on its terms, I cannot be happy.
I need to concentrate not so much as to what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in my attitudes.

When I focus on today, I have a good day, when I focus on a problem, I have a bad day.
If I focus on a problem, the problem increases---
If I focus on the answer, the answer increases
