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.

No Excuses

.

“If you really want

to do something,

you’ll find a way.

If you don’t,

you’ll find an excuse.”

.

~ Jim Rohn

.

Don’t lie, but be tactful.

Excuses are lies dressed up in fancy words.

Today, if you have a reason or even if you do not

have a reason to do or not do something,

be honest, do not make lame excuses.

Today, negotiate, accommodate, moderate,

compromise, just be kind and find an honest

mutual path to happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is never having to make an excuse.

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.

Rediscover

007

.

“Life is a succession

of crises and moments

when we have to

rediscover who we are

and what we really want.”

.

~ Jean Vanier

.

Know that the best laid plans of mice and men

can be changed by the will of a loving Higher Power

who seems to have a strange sense of humor.

Today, hold on to that which is dear,

let go of that which has served its purpose

and ignore that which detracts from having a life

that is happy, joyous, creative and free.

When in doubt, always be ready to go with the flow.

Recovery is constantly rediscovering ourselves.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Cross The Street

013

.

“If you see

crazy coming,

cross the street.”

.

~ Iyanla Vanzant

.

.

.

Let us assume that if you are reading this

you are not crazy.

Crazy is being stuck in la la land,

out there somewhere

where the word  ‘reality‘  has no meaning.

Today, do not get stuck on the wrong side of the street,

, seek your guidance from a loving Higher Power

and continue to trudge the road towards a destiny

that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is to keep on moving.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

Without Comparing

024

.

.

“Enjoy your own life

without comparing it

with that of another.”

.

.

~ Marquis de Condorcet

.

.

People who value feelings, love, kindness,

and contentment, have everything in life,

while many who possess the things,

the toys with all of the bells and whistles,

may be miserable souls who do not know

happy, joyous and free, real enjoyment.

Today, be a friend, do not compare the outsides,

identify with what is in the friends heart.

Today, seek you own happiness first,

then share the love.

Recovery is your own, no comparing.

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.
