Expectation Addicts



“A prayer for expectation addicts:

‘Show up. Shine. Let it go.’

Expectations shrink your shine

and weigh you down with

worry and equations.”


~ Danielle LaPorte



What did you really expect ? ? ?

Today, you can sit back and wait ,

knowing that eventually the train

will come down the track and run you over

or you can lay a new set of tracks that will move you

toward peace of mind and serenity.

Today, let a loving Higher Power lead you towards

a station filled with kindness, hope and forgiveness.

Today, share the shine, be the conductor

with no expectations.

Recovery is to show up, shine and let it go.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
