“Joy weathers any storm: Happiness rides the waves.” ― Todd Stocker

Those who are truly happy in life are those who do not allow the trials and difficulties to bring them down. Being in recovery provides us with the opportunity to learn how to walk through tough situations without becoming consumed by them. We are given a new sense of hope, purpose, and direction, and are working on building a relationship with our higher power. Our life takes on new meaning in sobriety, and we have a new perspective which allows us to endure and even appreciate the ups and downs along the road of life.

Today, I will give my attention and gratitude to the positive things in my life, and will have faith that with the help of my higher power, I can walk through any difficulty without drinking or using.
