Determination Yields Transformation

If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark & negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.
Lao Tzo

Sobriety Ain’t For Sissies

We’ve all been there. We don’t like what someone else is doing & we want THEM to change. No matter how much we want THEM to be different, that doesn’t work.

I only have the power to change myself. When I do that, when I think differently, when I speak differently, when I act differently, THEY will change in reaction to my change. It was Mahatma Ghandi who said we should “Be the change we want to see.”

AFFIRMATION It isn’t one day at a time, it’s one heartbeat at a time! It starts with me, & when I am being the very best ME I can be, then I am not in judgment of how others act. The plan is simple, but I tell you it is not easy, because True Sobriety Ain’t For Sissies!
