Life is 10% what happens to us, and 90% how we choose to think about it.
Gandhi once said, “A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.” This is as true with addicts as with anyone else. The perspective we have about the world and our place in it determines who we are and how we live our lives. If we think positively about our recovery, we will take actions and be sober. If we focus on failure, we will stagnate and fail. When we transform our thinking patterns from negative to positive, we turn ourselves into people who are no longer controlled by external factors. We take our power back. We live the way we think.
Just for Today: I will face my challenges with a smile, expecting to overcome them.
