Good morning! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. Every day I struggle with my faults or character defects. Patience is a big one for me, but another one that goes along with that, that I struggle with on a daily basis is self-control. Grenville Kleiser said, "By constant self-discipline and self-control you can develop greatness of character." And he doesn't say sometimes, or whever you want, he says constant. So I know I need to continually work on this. I like this picture a lot because it shows things that go along self-control, or other positive things that I can work as well. Balance is hard in life period, but was really hard in the beginning of sobriety. Calmness is also sometimes a minute-by-minute thing. Determination is something that keeps me going every day. I love my life today, and just want to see my family smile. Today I am more confident, in just knowing I can do anything I put my mind to. I have the will power to do anything. It may be hard, but I will try it. Self-control over my impules, emotions, and desires I am still working on, but aren't we all. That's all for today. Have a great one!
