Yep. We get more than our share of negativity daily. Sometimes, it can seem like we're lepers in the middle of a leper colony. I think this is where the "trudge" the road of HAPPY destiny kicks in. What impressed me most when I came into AA was: These people are staying sober! Wow! How much more positive can that get? I began to believe that sobriety MIGHT be possible for me -- if I got lucky. Then, later on, I heard about RECOVERY! Wow! Sober -- AND getting better? What could be better than that? Then, I went back to a meeting and nearly everyone was talking about sickness.
We all know how to get sick. We all know what it's like to be sick.
To stay alive and be sick -- we just need to stay sober.
Hey, but, that is BETTER than being dead and sick.
But we can stay alive and recover, too! IF we keep focused on our recovery!
Science spends a lot of money studying sick people. And, they know all about sick -- but, not many of the sick they are studying are making revolutionary changes in getting well.
What if -- science, instead, focused on "well people." Health People. Maybe then, they could teach us something about well and healthy people -- and we'd all get healthier? Yep. We could just start doing what healthy people do -- and we'd get healthy, too!
Do healthy people talk about getting or being sick? Rarely.
So, mark it up as one good thing that we can learn from the well ones! LOL.
