Nothing in your life will work unless you do.

Once upon a time, a sportswriter called baseball star Joe DiMaggio ‘a natural.’ DiMaggio was annoyed. The next time he saw the reporter, he walked him to his practice space, where he kept a log of his arduous practice routine. Like other famous athletes, musicians, writers, comedians, etc., DiMaggio was great not because he was a natural, but because he practiced relentlessly. This is also how lasting sobriety and recovery works. We learn skills in therapy and 12-step recovery, and we continually and relentlessly practice those skills. Eventually, as the twelfth step promises, we are able to maintain sobriety and to practice the principles of recovery and healing in all aspects of life.

Task for Today
Pick a tool of recovery and practice it.
