FR.LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery

MADNESS

“The madman who knows he is mad is close to sanity.”

~ Juan Ruiz de Alarcon ~

Alcoholics who continue to drink, addicts who continue to use, and overeaters who continue to eat compulsively are committing suicide. This is pure madness; it is like stabbing yourself with a knife and asking “Why am I bleeding?” The definition of insanity is repeating the same behavior and expecting a different result. Today I behave as a person in recovery behaves; I do what is necessary to stay sober for twenty-four hours. And I fully expect to be successful.

I accept my past destructive behavior and aim to change it on a daily basis. Spirituality is loving myself enough to see the writing on the wall and do something about it.

God, You seem to have given me a dose of insanity. Let me use it for Your glory.
