Day 994 Clean and Sober
Good afternoon! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. Almost 1,000 Days Clean and Sober, isn't that crazy??? There have been times in my life where I have wanted to give so I would eventually get something back in return. Jim Rohn said "Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have." And that is so true, but doing it for the wrong reasons is a huge problem. Giving only so you will get something in return is very wrong. We need to give so others want to give also. We want it to spread. People can usually see our attitiude in what we do. They can tell if we are doing things for ourselves as the end goal or other people. We need to be selfish, giving all of ourselves. The more me honestly give of ourselves, the more we truly receive. If you want joy, give joy. If you want love, give love. Be an real inspiration for others. That's all I have today. Have a great day! Happy Halloween!

Hello, Lauren! I am so grateful to have read your story and be completely inspired by your story. Doing something and waiting to receive something in return is do wrong. It's not sincere; it is a proof that it doesn't come from your heart. But if you want to genuinely serve as an inspiration to many, do just because that's what you want to do. I am actually shocked with why some people are doing it because they'll get something. If that's your motive, then it would be better for you not to do it!
