“One of the great tragedies of life is that men seldom bridge the gulf between practice and profession, between doing and saying.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
The greatest frustration is when I see or hear a newcomer share that they are struggling. If asked I always remind them that this too shall pass. The other day someone said that the month after he hit his 90 days was terrible. He said he wanted to use and was miserable. I asked him what he did the first 90 days to be successful. Of course he knew exactly what he did and he told me. I asked the obvious question, are you still doing those things? Well you know the answer, right after the “yeah buts”, he said “you are right I stopped my prayer, meditation and affirmations”! Rocket science! It is not the specific task that we stop doing, it may be different sometimes it is meetings, stopped calling their sponsor, etc. but it is always something.
The greatest tragedy is when we know what to do but just don’t do it! We need to bridge the gap between knowledge and action. If we want to be happy, joyous and free we must do what happy, joyous and free recovered people do! Simple… Life is goooood!
Go, Go, Go…
