EASY DOES IT #essentialsofrecovery

STICKING TO IT

I shot an arrow into the air. It fell to earth, I knew not where.

~ Longfellow~

When we’re working hard on something, and we’re not sure how it’s going to turn out, we sometimes feel hopeless. But we never let that hopeless feeling make us unsure of our goals. As long as we keep trying to help ourselves or others, we can’t fail.

Friends always tell us to look past our goals because we can’t tell when or where our message will find its mark. We tell ourselves every day that there is no shame in falling down. The shame comes when we fall and don’t get up again to make another try.

Our strength doesn’t come from winning easily. Our strength comes from winning over hopelessness. If we quit today, tomorrow will be impossible.

May I be strong and stick to my efforts at personal and spiritual progress.
