Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
You are the hero of your life
Each of us plays the starring role in the drama that is our life. We co-create the script, along with our Higher Power. Sometimes we forget our lines, and so we improvise as best we can. We are heroes, each of us, as we move through the events of the day, refining our character and using our gifts to shape the action of every scene.
We can each be a hero in the drama of recovery. To the casual observer, what we do and say may not appear to be at all heroic. But we – as insiders who are only too well acquainted with our individual limitations – can appreciate and applaud a difficult decision or action.
When we accept our role in life, when we pledge to use our energies to do the best we can, and when we rely on our Higher Power for guidance and support, we will be well on our way toward recovering.
I can be a hero today, even if it doesn’t show.
