If you’ve been struggling with alcoholism, today is an opportunity to pause and reflect on the progress you have made since making the courageous decision to seek recovery. On this April 10th day, take a moment to celebrate yourself for all that you have achieved and be gentle with any setbacks or struggles you may be facing in your journey of sobriety.
Despite difficult moments or days, remember that every step forward – no matter how small – brings us closer towards realizing our long-term goals of living happy, healthy and productive lives without alcohol’s influence.
Daily Reflections April 10
The essence of all growth is a willingness to change for the better and then an unremitting willingness to shoulder whatever responsibility this entails.
AS BILL SEES IT, p. 115
Just one act of kindness can be the spark that lights a fire in our lives. When we’re open to doing what is right, not just for ourselves but also for others, then more often than not rewards follow – sometimes they come immediately and other times later down the line; either way every effort is worth it!
Practicing principles such as empathy, patience and love are key components on our journey towards fulfillment which brings us joy day by day.
Ultimately, my daily reflections on April 10 showed me that everyone is capable of creating positive change in their life. By taking small steps to make yourself and those around you feel nurtured and appreciated, it ultimately makes your life better with the long-term rewards that come along with it.
Being kind and compassionate towards others is one of the most valuable rewards we can gain from embracing this type of lifestyle. We all go through difficult times, but by practicing these principles, we can see our lives shift for the better and have a newfound enthusiasm in our everyday journey.
My advice to anyone wanting to truly appreciate their life is to mark moments down in time where they become willing to do what’s right. And, it goes without saying: never forget how good it feels to help improve another’s quality of life in any way you can.
