In our program, it’s our responsibility to make plans. Making plans help us to achieve goals we may have. Goals to improve being happy, joyous, and free. We should just be careful not to plan the outcomes to specifically. We can make a plan, just be careful that it doesn't turn into an expectation.
An expectation that is unreasonably high is a premeditated resentment. An expectation that is too low is a premeditated disappointment. and resentments and disappointments are both dangerous for us alcoholics.
So, we alcoholics need to be careful in this business of resolution making we need to be careful as we plan our recovery life for the next year.
We need to be flexible as we plan Our higher power may have a different plan than we have. My experience, I need to be flexible or else I will be miserable.
