One thing I’ve learned in life is that if you expect the worst, you won’t be disappointed. But if you expect to see God’s goodness, you won’t be disappointed, either. Joel Osteen.
Henry Ford was big on the idea of thinking positive. He said, “whether you think you can or you think you can’t your right”! In the recovered life we must focus on what we are becoming and not what we do not want! Surely in the beginning of recovery we are running hard from the addiction but we must make the shift in focus if we want true freedom and happiness. We begin to focus on living a Healthy, Happy, Prosperous, Clean and Sober Life! We no longer focus on “NOT drinking and drugging”. I am a new creature!
When we proclaim our addiction or alcoholism in meetings we are identifying ourselves as recovered and living life happy, joyous and free! Life gets better and better and better everyday! Live life well cause life is gooooood!
Go, Go, Go…
