Courage is fear that has said its prayers.
One Day at a Time in Al-Alnon
Nothing freeze us in our tracks like fear. How many times have we let fear stop us from doing what we really wanted to do?
Maybe we wanted to look for a job, be honest with a friend, ask someone for a date,
buy a house. But we couldn’t because we were afraid. The truth is, the moment our fear takes control, our self-will also takes control.
The first thing to do is to admit to ourselves that we’re afraid.
The second is to find out why. Discovering why may mean calling a friend
to talk, praying, taking an inventory of ourselves. To feel the feat lift is to have ourselves back again. Then, when we know how wer feel, we’ll know what to do do.
Say with me:
Can I accept my Higher Power’s help and the help of others when I’m afraid?
Emotional balance and serenity unclouded by fear are the gifts of healing.
