Recovery Inspiration

Character

By: WC 

Albert Einstein one said "If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things" tonight I'm writing a new goal list. It has nothing to do with people or things. Instead it has everything to do with the content of my character. I remember watching Braveheart and thinking about how William Wallace was such a hero. At that time I was still wrapped up in my addiction, but I remember thinking to myself, I want to be the hero of my own story! Today I am becoming the hero of my own story (slowly, but its happening) My goals are about who I am becoming, a more loving individual, less judgemental, compassionate & empathetic. May I seek to be understanding, rather then to be understood (11th step 12 & 12). I believe I'm definitely a work in progress and have a long way to go. I'm just grateful, grateful that I get an opportunity to see that!!!
