Daily Reflection for Saturday, October 2, 2010
Worry is like paying interest on a debt you may never owe.
– Recovery Term
A knowledge of Sanskrit is of little use to a man in a sewer.
– H.R. Roll
The joy is in the journey.
– Recovery term
Wouldn’t it be nice to “recover” from everything within three days?
– K. Lee
Today’s reflection concludes my three-day little jaunt through recovery terms. As I wrap these up, I’m also reminded of a workshop I attended once in which the trainer told us about using recovery quotes as part of his treatment plan with the recovering addicts he worked with. The leader said, “I can usually tell if they hit home or not by people’s reactions. Some will glaze over and just stare at the floor, others will scoop them up and add them to their own quote collections; and then every once in awhile someone will read a particular quote, get angry, start swearing, toss over a chair and walk out of the room. Those,” the workshop leader said, “are my favorite quotes of all!”
Hopefully none of my readers did that. If you did, please put the chair back where you found it! Ha!
