It’s possible to live a life without some temporary buzz or high from drugs and/or alcohol.
When a person is ready and willing to give it up-amazing things happen.
There will be setbacks and hard times, but for me-nothing has given me more of a high than living life through eyes un-fogged from the haze of last night’s drink or drug.
If you’re struggling, please don’t give up
FEAR IS A LIAR
Fear is a big fat liar anyway.
BLAB LAST WEEK: SELF-ACCEPTANCE
I have to own my short comings. My quirks. My flaws. This is me. This is who I am now. I accept all of my past, and all of my present.
I trust that the stuff that gets in the way of my journey through this wonderful life will go. I accept that I’m not in control.
I accept where I am in life, and love that everyday is a new day to welcome whatever comes my way.
Self-acceptance is progress not perfection. We’re all human, so love and accept yourself for all you are.
NOT HONEST? BUH-BYE
I was asked the question, “What does it mean to you when someone says love yourself?”
I had to quickly respond, but I was grateful I could even answer that question today.
Four years ago I would’ve been at a loss for words. I responded with this:
For me, it means to accept who I am and where I am in life. It also means I’ve accepted my faults, quirks, ups and downs.
The things I’ve done wrong, and all those times I used to want to change. They’ve all made me who I am today.
When we accept our past-the good, the bad, and the ugly-we begin to love ourselves. To understand who we are and what makes us tick.
MOVE FORWARD LIKE A WARRIOR
Came across this quote this morning, and had to write it down.
Being wishy-washy gets us nowhere. These thoughts are the ego’s way of looking for obstacles.
We can acknowledge the doubts, and then quickly cast them aside moving forward like a warrior.
If the goal still feels right, we keep moving ahead. We know in our hearts that doing what we believe in keeps us on the right path.
