Attitudes & Expectations

Today's page in Courage to Change, an Alanon daily reader, talks about resentments. It defines an expectation as a pre-meditated resentment. I don't have many expectations right now. Some of the ones that I have are those that I have of myself such as expecting that I would have painted the upstairs by now (four months since I bought the paint). It doesn't matter that I have a good work ethic etc,etc, I get on my case about what I haven't done. Now, I think that it's quite possible that it's just not important to me.

Someone was asking me if I was worried about my son joining the army.I hadn't thought about it much lately and I said I had given it to God and knew that whatever decision made would be the right one. He's a long time AA-er, gave me a quizzical look because he drives himself crazy over his son out there using.

What's good about today is that we're all different and we're all the same. Or, we're all insane?!
