Down in the Dumps?

“Start by doing what’s necessary, then do what’s possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” – Francis of Assisi

One of the the first things I learned while I was living in Panama Central America  is that people there repair stuff and do not throw it away.  If your blender breaks you take it to a repair shop and for a few bucks they fix it.  Here in the United States we toss it away and buy a new one.  Large appliances we send to the dumps!

Often in our lives when life gets us down we want to toss it to the trash.  We go down in the dumps and the upward climb looks unattainable.  But it is not, in recovery we know that we have each other, we have God, we have our sponsor or mentor.  We know that we are not junk to be discarded.  No matter how far down the pike we have gone we always have hope!

When we put one foot in front of the other, when we do what is necessary, the impossible becomes possible.  If we keep pushing forward the possible becomes probable.

Go, Go, Go…
