Each day is a “workshop.” Let’s remember to keep our minds and hearts open so we won’t miss our opportunities.
~ Dudley Martineau
Looking at every day as a Workshop for more productive or rewarding living eases the dread of new or unfamiliar circumstances. Developing the belief that we will be given exactly what we need to learn will change how we meet every twenty-four hours.
Before Recovery we expected life to be hard. Our jobs often felt like drudgery. Our families seldom gave us the affirmation we longed for. Friends were unavailable. What we felt we deserved and sought, we often didn’t find. That was then. This is now.
It’s a simple change in perspective to come to believe that we are given what we need from our jobs, our families, our friends, every day. Accepting this belief will influence the outcome of every experience. Our lives will never seem the same.
I paid my dues for today’s workshop by becoming abstinent. What I will learn is up to me.
