“I have learned, as a rule of thumb, never to ask whether you can do something. Say, instead, that you are doing it. Then fasten your seat belt. The most remarkable things follow.” – Julia Cameron
The quote that sticks to me to this day is Henry Fords, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t you’re right”! Early on in alcohol and/or drug addiction recovery we typically think we can’t stop! We feel as if we are doomed with no way out! We say to ourselves in a negative tone, “how can I possibly do this”? What we really need to say in a positive tone actually seeking the answer is, “HOW CAN I DO THIS”? When we seek, we find!
Remarkable things follow the action steps. In fact in the twelve step model it states that before we are half-way through we will know a new freedom! A new way of life, a new approach to happiness. The joy of living. Life is an opportunity take advantage of it! Go for it!!!
Go, Go, Go…
