As we all know life throws out some curve balls. Nothing is to be expected except the unexpected. People pass away, friends leave, plans change. The only constant is that life has its own terms and conditions. I can’t control the way other people are, I can’t change the way life works, I can however change the way I react to life. Being clean has given me the ability to understand these principals. I have also come to understand that I’m powerless over people, places and things and no matter how much time I put into trying to change others it will never happen.

All I have control over is me and my reaction to life.
