Opportunities

.

“A pessimist is one

who makes difficulties

of his opportunities

and an optimist is one

who makes opportunities

of his difficulties.”

.

~ Harry Truman

.

.

Is everything going to Hell in a hand-basket ???,

change your attitude, get a bushel basket,

collect all of the pieces, discard the sick and ugly,

keep the happy and healthy and use the opportunity

to make this world a better place for all.

Today, face the fear

and seek the chance to do God’s will.

Recovery is making opportunities out of your difficulties.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

No Lies

.

“Of all the liars

in the world

sometimes the worst

are our own fears.”

.

~ Rudyard Kipling

.

Anxious, concerned, nervous

uneasy, apprehensive, distressed,

thinking about all the things that could go wrong,

it is all of the negativity that the Devil can concoct,

however, the Devil did not make me do it,

we create our own fears, and we lie to justify them.

Today, let go and let God, do your best , have faith,

love and kindness need no justification, no lies.

Recovery is not to lie to ourselves.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

A Reality

.

“Life is not

a problem

to be solved,

but a reality

to be experienced.”

.

~ Soren Kierkegaard

.

What’s the problem ???,

afraid of uncertainty, fear the change,

guess what ???,

that’s reality.

Today, minimize the angst, lower the stress,

reduce the number of headaches and “accept”

God’s world as being exactly as He wishes it to be,

ever-changing, beyond our scope of comprehension,

and a journey to be enjoyed.

Recovery is to enjoy the reality.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Impossible

.

“Start by doing

what’s necessary;

then do what’s possible;

and suddenly you are

doing the impossible.”

.

– Saint Francis of Assisi

.

Fear is the impossible,

your preconceived ideas that are ego driven;

fear of failure, fear of prosperity, fear of the unknown.

Today, lose the fear, do something kind, smile,

be loving, be forgiving, be patient and tolerant,

be the person God wants you to be,

and before you know it, you will amaze yourself

by being able to do the impossible,

enjoying life without fear.

Recovery is doing the impossible.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Dream Big, Have Faith

.

“You block your dream

when you allow your fear

to grow bigger than

your faith.”

.

~ Mary Manin Morrissey

.

.

Fear is often a vivid imagination

that has no base in reality,

no foundation in fact.

Today, don’t know if you are coming or going,

pray to your Higher Power for guidance,

ask a friend for a suggestion, have faith that your fear

will not overcome your God given intuition.

Today, use all of the tools that your imagination

can create to lose the fear and have a life

that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is always having enough faith to dream.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

We Have The Key

005

.

“So often time

it happens,

we all live

our life in chains,

and we never even know

we have the key.”

.

~ The Eagles

.

Fear, anger, hate, pride, jealousy;

some of the many links in the chain

that prevents us from living a life

that is happy, joyous and free.

Love, kindness, patience, tolerance, forgiveness,

we all possess the master keys that can open any heart.

Today, ask a friend, ask your Higher Power

to show you how to use the many keys that

the Great Creator has given unto us all.

Recovery is finding the key to serenity and peace of mind.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.

Held By Fear

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

.

“A fear of

the unknown

keeps a lot

of people

from leaving

bad situations.”

.

~ Kathie Lee Gifford

.

Fear, the number one complaint of the alcoholic.

Fear of failure, fear of not being accepted,

fear of economic insecurity, fear of not being loved,

fear that I won’t be able to secure the next drink,

fear of prosperity, we feared everything that required

the drunk to grow up and be a responsible person.

Soul sickness, the ultimate symptom of fear and loathing.

The lucky will find the rooms of AA.

Faith overcomes fear.

Today, hang out with the faithful, it does rub off.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
