Effort and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.
We all have something we’re good at that we love to do. If we’re lucky (and smart), we turn that into our purpose. Unfortunately, most of us never manage to do that. We fall into the trap of “just getting by,” and we forget about the things that truly inspire us. That holds us back in painful ways that do not support our recovery. If we ever hope to escape the daily grind and truly succeed—not just staying sober but also loving life—we need to overcome this impediment. We need to find and embrace our purpose.
Just for Today
I will ask myself, “What do I love to do, and how can I incorporate that into my daily life?”
