The Real Challenge



“The real challenge

is not just to survive.

Hell, anyone can do that.

It’s to survive as yourself,



~ Elia Kazan


The fine line.

The line in the sand.

Cross the line and….then what ???


The war last only as long as you put your face

in the line of fire.

Today, tired of fighting, sick of just surviving ???

find a friend, be a friend and make sure the lines

are not diminishing your true self.

Recovery is to survive as yourself, undiminished.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
