-Christian D. Larson
Can I recall a time in my life when I had a fire burning inside of me that allowed me to overcome a nearly impossible obstacle? Whether that fire was for something good, healthy and positive, or for something unhealthy, I found a way to persevere and overcome it. This serves as a reminder that I have the skills and tools within me to win over challenges. A burning desire to stay sober, can prevent any attempts to put out the flame. Ultimately, we are what we feed ourselves. When I want to lead a sober lifestyle, and my actions back up those wants, then nothing can get in my way. Today, I will believe in my capacity to change. I will have faith that I have what it takes to be successful in recovery. I will overcome obstacles knowing that there is better in store for me when I rise to life’s challenges.
