Anything worth having in life takes time. We have a tendency to lack appreciation for the things that come quick and easy. Choosing a life of recovery will require you to work through obstacles. We don’t take the time to appreciate a good piece of fruit because we simply buy it and eat it. We don’t take the time to appreciate all the time for the fruit to grow, and the process it takes to get it to the point in which you are ready to eat it. Today, I will take the time to appreciate the journey. I will have gratitude for the obstacles that I have overcome as I dedicate my time to a renewed life.
