I'm learning that I have a choice. Each day when I wake up, I have a choice to take a positive outlook on life or a negative outlook on my day. I have a choice as to whether or not I want to work my program, call my sponsor, or eat my feelings away. I also have a choice of living in the problem or working the solution. I know the best way for me is to choose the positive outlook, call my sponsor, work my program, not eat no matter what and to work the solution and get out of the problem. Some days are harder than others. But, the more I plow through and move forward and TRY, the more likely I am to come out on the other side. Each day when I open my eyes, I ask God to step in, show me and help me with those choices and to make the right ones to the best of my ability and accept my life just as it is…perfect.
