The Opportunity to Grow

“With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.”
–Wayne W. Dyer

Never sit on the pity pot, the only ting that comes out of feeling bad for yourself is the “Pour Me’s”.  Yes, Poor Me, Poor Me, Pour me a drink!  Everything we go through in life offers us an opportunity.  What we do with the opportunity is what counts.  Everyone that has done anything special in their lives has faced adversity.  Often extreme adversity.

If anyone knows anything about adversity it is the alcoholic and addicts of this world.  We have been as low as the ant, but in our recovery we live like the ant only taller.   Recovery requires growth.  Growth starts when we realize we need help.  Then of course we admit defeat and carry on wayward soldiers!

Go, Go, Go…
