February 8, 2010

Today I am Grateful for:

Differences. In "A Day At A Time" this was the topic for today. Interestingly I didn't know what I wanted to blog about today, but that hit a good point for me. I get caught up in the opinions of other people and I can end up letting their opinions affect how I think or go through my day. Those were the reasons I used drugs and alcohol because I would take their opinions or their differences of how I think to heart. Today I am learning that people are always going to have opinions how I should be going through my life and how I should be living my life. I would begin to doubt my plan of action because they didn't believe I was capable to follow through with my plan. During my addiction, they were probably right. That's where the negative thinking would start to fester in me and I would slowly loose sight of whatever path I was following. Today I am learning that others can have their difference of opinions for my life, but I have to stay steady with my faith and desire so that I can follow through on my journey in life. I understand that I don't have control of anything, and if it's God's will, then so be it. But I do have the capacity to chart my course and the winds will blow me in the direction I want to go. Sometimes it requires me to change my tack as I move along, but I will end up at the point I am headed for.


  1. I can not add one thing. Yes..what other people think of me is none of my business. I was all too ready to do whatever it took to be accepted or liked. Alanon told me that my first job was to take care of myself. My HP does a better job than I can. Good post!


  2. Staying focused gets us there, eventually.

  3. Every person has a right to their opinion, even though I may not always agree with it. Great post.
