Stop accepting who you are. Start working on who you want to be.
Are you comfortable with your life? If you are, consider that a warning sign because complacency is the enemy of lasting recovery and healing. As recovering addicts, we should never be 100 percent comfortable. If we’re completely comfortable, we’re not testing ourselves; we’re not growing; we’re not improving ourselves, our lives, or the world. We always have room to improve. To achieve this, we can set aside a small amount of time each day to learn. We might listen to a podcast on our way home from work, scroll through a book while we eat lunch, or play with an app that’s designed to educate and make life better. However we go about it, we must at least occasionally step past the boundaries of our comfort zone. If we fail to do this, we fail to become our fullest selves.
Task for Today
Focus on a task or challenge that makes you uncomfortable, and work to complete that task or overcome that challenge.
