“Being maniacal about something is very helpful.” — Bill Gates
The term maniac when we think about it is not the greatest term it implies we are crazy. But just the opposite is true, we are sane, simply passionate about life. I think I shocked a few people when they came walking into the office and I was singing, “I feel good, I feel fine, I feel this way all the time”! Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes……… I guess when you know me you realize I do not really care if you think I am crazy, because I lived such a dreadful existence for way too long! Today I am happy! Today Kevin came walking in singing, “I feel good….” Hey we need to spread the fever, the happiness fever!
I would say Bill Gates knows something about something. Yet, I never really saw him as a passionate fellow, then as I read the quote I realized I was confusing passion with emotion! Most of us addicts live on emotion, it drives us, it actually steers our ship. What we need to do is follow our passion. Allow our passion to steer the ship. Our passion for life, God, family, recovery, and joy! Hey join the “Recoverlution”!!! I’m alive I’m awake and I feel great!!!!!
Go, Go, Go…
