E + R = O…

A life of reaction is a life of slavery, intellectually and spiritually. One must fight for a life of action, not reaction. – Rita Mae Brown

E + R = O. Event plus response equals outcome! Learning to respond to adversity or simply life events, is crucial for the individual in recovery. When things go wrong, and they will go wrong, we must look critically at the situation, evaluate our options and respond in an informed way. The concept of having a sponsor, spiritual advisor and/or mentor should not be taken lightly. Gathering information from people that have walked the walk before us is extremely helpful and quite frankly critical to our success.

As we progress in our recovery we will learn that taking the time to walk through adversity and not skirt the issues we will be better prepared for hectic emergency situations. Learning restraint of pen and tongue in the difficult times will assist us when stress rises and an immediate response is necessary. Life is good!

Go, Go, Go…

Dear dan,
As always thx for your service. I woke today to a bit of that morning head talk
And said to myself take action, do the work mornings ritual etc. And then I saw
Your email. As a man in a meeting the other day said, God has shown me a lot
Thru coincidences, I thought that is in interesting take on that topic. Anyway
There are no coincidenses. Hope. All is well with you!
