Good afternoon! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. I was listening to a Chalene Johnson podcast today and she hit the nail on the head today with a motivation one. One point she made was "What you think you become." This is along the same lines of a Buddha quote, and it is so true. If you think negative, negative happens. If you think positive, positive happens. If you feel miserable and are having headaches all the time, and keep telling yourself that, you will continue to do so. That's just how it is. If you think you are in a terrible marriage, that is what it will become. If you think your life is crap, then that is what it what it will be. But on the other hand, if you change your perspective, like I had to do, and I did when I got sober, and think positive, good things happen. And I don't think they happened by chance, I made them happen, well God made them happen, but only because I had a good attitude and had a good spiritual connection with Him. When I was drinking I had built a wall up between God and I. There was a spiritual disconnect, and with that disconnect came a lot of negativity. Once I got reconnected, my perspective changed, my priorities changed, my life changed. So just think about that for a minute. If you want your life to change, you can change it. It is up to you. That's all I have for today. Have a great one!
