Strive for Excellence

“Work is about a search for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life, rather than a Monday-to-Friday sort of dying.”   Studs Terkel

Strive for excellence in all you do.  I was discussing the Real Life Recovery Program with a therapist recently.  He asked me why our curriculum did not include a relapse prevention component.  I responded that we do have a relapse prevention component to our program we simply do not label it such.  Recovery is about being proactive in our lives.  It is more than not drinking and drugging.  If we focus on what we want in our lives then relapse is not an option.

The early stages of recovery requires diligence and work.  We then move to a focus on living our lives one day at a time on “purpose”.  The pursuit of happiness and fulfillment is our relapse prevention.  Staying focused on living life on life’s terms, striving to achieve our goals within our abilities, and to maintain a spiritual balance in life.

Focus, Forgive and Fulfill,

Go. Go. Go…
