(adapted from Tian Dayton’s One Foot in Front ofthe Other: daily affirmations for recovery)
Tian’s affirmation today entitled “Respecting the Gift of My Life” is all about taking responsibility for ourselves, and essentially our recovery.
In this affirmation, she writes about the importance of self-care, attitudes and whatever will help keep our moods stable and positive, to keep us heading in the right recovery direction.
One of the promises of ACA is we learn how to re-parent ourselves. This affirmation reminds me of that principle but also to respect our life's journey and to move forward with a balance of both responsibility, acceptance and a type of surrender.
I will sustain and respect the life I have been given.
