Living Life on Life's Terms? Yes


A sponsee asked me recently “how do we really live life on life’s terms, when it appears at best to be an extraordinarily difficult proposition?” “Yes indeed” I replied, “Difficult yes…but not impossible.”

I went on to say that in recovery I have learned that we must approach each moment of each day with the spirit of hope no matter what  Yes there is suffering in life, there is pain and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. And yes we will lose some of the battles as we struggle for our dreams.

But what we do not see and what most of us never suspect of existing, is the silent but irresistible power which comes to the rescue of those who fight on in the face of discouragement and loss.  For me that is recovery, and the very essence of “living life on life’s term.”

And how long should I continue to try to live life on life’s terms?
