"The sun doesn’t apologize for shining, neither should you” – Bradd Eastonlet yourself shine

 

Ok, today's recovery inspiration is a little self-indulgent.  But several friends have found this helpful over the years.  I hope you will too.

The sun's job is to be itself and to shine.  It is the same with each of us, to be ourselves and to shine.

"The purpose of our lives is to be happy" - Dalai Lamapurpose of life

The first Recovery Inspiration for 2015!

Most days we get preoccupied with things on our to-do lists, or thinking and planning for the future, or ruminating on the past.  We often forget that life, at its core is fairly simple.  To start off the year right, remember how simple life can be.  Happiness is a state of mind that doesn't depend on outside circumstances.
