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.

“Work and Wait”

.

.

“Work and wait”,

“work and wait”,

that is what God

says to us in creation.”

.

~ Josiah Gilbert Holland

.

.

God will give you the chance, the choice is yours.

Today, work to create a life that is built around

doing the will of your loving Higher Power.

Today, love, laugh, be patient, be tolerant,

be kind and be the person God wants you to be.

Today, know that good choices will not have to

wait long to be rewarded with the blessings of

the loving Spirit of the Uni-verse.

Recovery is to “work and wait”.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

No Doubt

.

“When you doubt

your power,

you give power

to your doubt.”

.

~Honore de Balzac

.

.

Not all butterflies are bright and beautiful,

but God gave all butterflies the power

to pollinate the flowers and the weeds.

Today, do not doubt the power given to you

by the Great Creator, just do the next right thing,

the will of your loving Higher Power,

to keep God’s world bountifully supplied

with kindness, love and pollen.

Today, spread your wings and soar with the Angels.

Recovery is to never doubt your power.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Think Less, Feel More

.

“Get out of

your head

and get into

your heart.

Think less,

feel more.”

.

~ Osho

.

Can’t you just feel it ???

When one stops thinking

and searches out the vibrations

of the Spirit of the Uni-verse,

and you allow yourself to become one with the Light,

serenity, peace of mind and love are yours to be enjoyed.

Today, feel the love,

avoid mean people,

do not go to evil places

and do only the next right thing.

Recovery is to think less, feel more.

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.

Laughter

.

.

.

the most wasted

of all days is

one without laughter.”

.

~ e. e. cummings

.

.

.

laughter is good when we laugh

with others, not at them.

laughter is good when we laugh

at ourselves.

laughter is good when we laugh

body, mind and soul.

today, look for the happiness,

know that it can be found in kindness and love

and in a friend with whom you can share a laugh.

Recovery is a good laugh.

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.
