If recovery is to be likened to a race at all, it most certainly is about the plodding, patient, and humble runner who clearly knows that what is called for is to put one foot in front of the other and then do it again. ~ Larsen, Earnie. Days of Healing, Days of Joy: Daily Meditations for Adult Children (Hazelden Meditations) . Hazelden Publishing. Kindle Edition.
The race is not always to the swift.
Do you find yourself competing
against others in Recovery?
What pulls you toward the goal?
How often do you compare your Recovery
to others you know? Do you gloat
and/or compare yourself to others?
Do you believe you understand
Recovery better than others you know?
Is anyone else’s Recovery your business?
Does that answer depend on whether or not
you are their sponsor?
Are you giving your best
to the race?
