You can do it

Today's Inspiration for ya: Okay, so I went to bikram today and there was a woman there who was morbidly obese. She had just started going to bikram and has been five times in four days and talked about making a committment to change her life. If others can find their weak links and take steps to change, WE CAN TOO.

So What?

if you don't get your way.

If it doesn't work out, it's not a good fit.

Jobs, relationships, rewards and regrets

These come and go.

What it true is your core
Your authenticity
Your pliability

The extent to which you can digest the good and expell the bad, learning the whole way through.

Besides, recovery is all about trusting that if not this, something much better is just around the corner.

Just for Today, if something doesn't work out as you planned..the job, the girl, the _______________, then practice the faith that abundance beyond your wildest dreams is just beyond the next door that opens.

How Important Is It?

Winning isn't everything...

especially when it means losing...

something or someone else.

Despite what we've been taught,

letting others know we know what is right is not helpful; especially since we didn't know what was right for us to begin with.

Getting sober means forgetting about being the boss and digesting a better way of living.

A way that doesn't always mean we are right, but that, no matter what, we can FEEL alright.

Just for today, let someone else prove you wrong. You will be surprised at how much more you will like yourself afterwards...

The Solution

The solution is out there if you so choose...

The pain of making that same mistake over and over is there as well.

Sometimes, that decision is not as easy as one might think,

but the choice can be life or death,

relationship or none,

forgiveness or resentment,

clinging or letting go...

Just for today, live in the solution whether you want to or not.

Back on Track

When you lose your way, start again.

When you can't find your way through the fog, you are most likely being protected from something that you aren't yet ready to see.

Give it time.

It will come.

The fog will lift and you will find your center again.

If we were always centered, then what would be interesting about the journey?

Just for today, Don't pick up the self-loathing stick and, instead, find something to laugh about instead. Time will pass whether you choose to have fun or not.
