Here is a Novel Ideal

Keep your mouth shut.

That's right..

How often do we try to insert ourseleves in other people's journeys...not only is this bad for their recovery, it is bad for ours!

Focusing on others is a way to avoid self-discovery and growth.

Just for today, don't miss an opportunity to refrain from talking.

Move Your Feet

Prayer without action is futile.

At least when it comes to the recovering brain.

God can only help those who are willing to put their feet where their brains need to be.

Just for Today, stop waiting for your brain to change while you are locked in your room or sitting alone in front of the television. Go to a meeting. Go for a walk. Shift your perspective. Do that every day for the rest of your life, even for a minute, and, then, your brain will graciously follow, rather than being tugged around like a ton of bricks.

Let Someone Else Take Charge

Have you ever thought about, I mean, really thought about now, how much energy we expend trying to control everything around us?
On the flip side, have you ever considered what it would be like to let someone else be "in charge" for a day?

What would be the fear in doing so?
Is it that we fear we will lose the job or, worse, lose the attention? Perhaps it is that we fear that what lies beneath is just nothing to "write home about," so to speak, and so we have to spend time focusing on what everyone else is doing or not doing so nobody will get "inside" of us.

What if, however, letting the control go, even for a day, would add things to our lives instead of robbing us of them?
Things like, say, peace of mind. A release from the "need to be right" tightness in your chest?
Time to do something nice for yourself? Wow, these things seem really PAINFUL don't they?

Or just unfamiliar....

Just for today, let someone else take the lead for a change. You might be surprised just how long they've been waiting their turn.
