Father Leo’s Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery

COURAGE


“Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must be first overcome.”

– Samuel Johnson

There was a time when I never attempted anything because I said it “can’t” be done. I could never get sober. I could never stand up to my drunken friends. I could never face my buried secrets. I could never stop gambling. I could never change my eating habits or stop using cocaine.

Then I heard the confidence and hope that was reflected in people who were recovering from these same problems. I heard people talk about what it was like, what happened and what it is like now. They told me I didn’t mean “can’t”, I meant “won’t”! They told me to take a risk, think positive, try. Today, yesterday’s objections are mere memories.

Thank You for showing me the light at the end of the tunnel. May I continue to walk in the light.
