“Obstacles cannot keep me from finding the good in my life and following where it leads. Nothing can get in the way of this – unless I allow it….” – One Day at a Time in Al-Anon p.185
Wow. That quote really says it all. Nothing, absolutely nothing, can get in the way of me loving life with every ounce of my being, unless I allow it. I simply need to recognize the moment I feel some thing, thought or person trying to pull me away from loving life and make the decision: Nope. Sorry. Not taking the bait. Loving life is more important. Then I simply detach from that thing, thought or person that is either intentionally or unintentionally trying to take me down. If it’s a person, likely they will be unhappy that I’m not joining their drama, but that’s ok – that too shall pass. What’s important is that I detach from negativity and INSIST ON LOVING LIFE!!!! ILML!
Note: Special thanks to Adam T who sent me the quote today!
