Don’t Take It Personally

.

“There is

a huge amount

of freedom that

comes to you

when you take

nothing personally.”

.

~Don Miguel Ruiz

.

Personally, I like me, God likes me and

if you don’t like me, that’s your problem.

Even constructive criticism is your opinion

and the options of how I react to that opinion

rest personally with the free me.

Today, as long as I choose to do the next right thing,

I concern myself with doing the will of my Higher Power,

I can personally be happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is the freedom to be happy with yourself.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

The Inside Job

.

“Though we travel

the world over

to find the beautiful,

we must carry it with us

or we find it not.”

.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

.

It is not what you see, it is how you perceive.

The Great Creator has made this world beautiful,

look for the good, be kind and loving, have faith,

believing that God has already provide the beautiful.

Today, look inside of yourself,

God has also planted something beautiful in there,

a soul that can be happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is having a beautiful attitude.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

The Secret

.

“The secret of the true life

is to remain still

in the midst of activity

and vibrantly awake

while in meditation.

.

~ Dada Vaswani

.

Feeding into the chaos is a false life.

Placating the wishes and wants of others is a false life.

Placing great expectations on people

and God’s world is a false life.

The true life is to see both sides of the coin,

to understand the ebb and flow,

to know the yin and yang of the Great Creator.

Today, seek your balance.

Recovery is to know when to turn off and when to tune in.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Pay The Price

.

.

“For anything worth having

one must pay the price;

and the price is always

work, patience, love,

and self-sacrifice”

.

~ John Burroughs

.

.

Unfortunately we cannot have it all

just by saying the magic words,

clicking our heels together,

rubbing the genie’s lamp,

twitching one’s nose

or by the snapping of our fingers.

Today, do the next right thing, know that

all prayers are answered in God’s time,

and love is the key to all of life’s dreams.

Today, know that what you give of yourself

is the price one pays for happiness.

Recovery is getting what you pay for.

Sobriety is a gift from a loving Higher Power.

No One Is Inferior

.

“The surrender of life

is nothing              

to sinking down into

acknowledgment

of inferiority.”

.

– John C. Calhoun

.

God made nothing that is inferior.

Today, you do not have to act superior;

just be kind, be loving, be patient and tolerant,

be forgiving and compassionate and be the person

your Higher Power wants you to be.

The Great Creator has placed every one of us

in this world to do His will, to make this planet

a better place for all.

Recovery is a healthy dose of self-esteem.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

A Small Word

002

.

“Impossible is just

a small word that is

thrown around by small men

who find it easier to live

in a world they’ve been given,

than to explore the power

they have to change it.”

.

~ Muhammad Ali

.

Don’t like the small world that you live in,

let go and let God show you that within your

heart and soul is the power to change.

It is not likely that you will achieve

the top of the mountain with your first try

but have faith, know that the journey to the top

begins with one small exploratory step.

Recovery is to explore your power to change.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Me, You and God

003

.

Pray as though

everything

depended on God.

Work as though

everything

depended on you.”

.

~ Saint Augustine

.

God has designed this world to be a “WE” world,

me, you and God; with the sole purpose of having

us work together to make this Uni-verse

a better place for all.

Today, pray to God that you may have only

kind and loving thoughts and that all of your actions

will make this “WE” world happy, joyous and free.

Today, act as though the world depends on you.

Recovery is depending on God and self.

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.
