It may be easy to see how the behaviors of others have had an impact on the negativity in our lives. It may even be easy to see the ripple effects of the damage that we have caused in the course of our addiction. Have we stopped to think of the ripple effects of our efforts to stay sober? Every day I stay sober, I give myself the opportunity to make a small positive impact on the world. But as I change and grow, and others change and grow our impact is amplified, and extends beyond ourselves and our families and impacts the world. Today, I will make efforts to do my little bit of good. I will embrace the notion that my decision not to use today, and better myself will ultimately makes the world a better place.
