April 24, 2017 - Readings in Recovery: Today's Gift from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation

Monday, April 24, 2017

Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

Passion

“This week, I went scuba diving,” a man told me. “Hadn’t done it for years. I forgot how much doing something I love, even for one afternoon, can change my entire outlook on life.”

It’s easy to tell ourselves we can’t have what we want and can’t do what we want. And sometimes, we can’t. But once in a while, even for an afternoon, it is helpful to treat yourself.

How long has it been since you did something you loved? Are you willing to be open to what excites and inspires you? If you can’t do what you love, can you find passion in what you are doing?
