"stinkin'thinkin'" of the addict is to want a quick fix. There is none. Even wanting the quick fix is part of the disease.
“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has managed, HE or SHE will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” –Henry David Thoreau
“Make yourself a blessing to someone. Your kind smile or part on the back just might pull someone back from the edge.”—Carmelia Elliot
Faith requires patience. All seeds have a gestation period. Getting uptight doesn’t make it go any faster. What you focus on you create more of, so focusing on impatience =lack=pushing it away. Choose what to focus on to strengthen your faith and patience, and you will be victorious.
Lord, unwrinkle my tired soul unsnarl my garbled thoughts and words, unwind my gnarled nerves and let me relax in thee.

Recovery doesn’t have to be a straight line. As long as I am on the road, I must be going somewhere.
When I slow down long enough to smell the roses, I usually see the beauty and so else that is ours to share
Today I have the opportunity to stop look up and be grateful for the many gifts that are mine
We are all that we need to be today, at this moment
If you haven’t forgiven yourself something, how can you forgive others? – – – Dolores Huerta
Forgiveness has to start with self. To forgive ourself does not mean we condone or support everything we have done. It means we own it, we claim it, and we move on.
We that suffer from perfectionism make so many promises that no human could possibly keep them all. That is one way we keep ourselves feeling bad about ourselves_—Lynn
Checking to see if I can and want to fulfill a promise before I make it is good for me and good for others
Beware and always check in with ur realistic self, don’t out economics and see yourself as a failure. We are here for so many reasons, for so many people, because we are So luved
“I want you to get excited about who you are, what you are, what you have, and what can still be for you. I want to inspire you to see that you go far beyond where you are right now.”
– – – Virginia Satir
Today, I will let my excitement for life’s possibilities spur me on.
Desiring God’s Will is my most fruitful desire. It’s also what is best for me; thus, what I need.
All things are working for good when I let my higher power determine my desires.
Life is made up of desires that seem big and vital one minute, and little and absurd the next. I guess we get what’s best for us in the end.
