I am a fish – my thoughts – the bait 11/17

I keep learning about the play of life.

The beauty the nonsense the funny the scary the anxious the kind and the rough. The impatient the relaxed the millions of different states that this physical body can feel in any given day.

I watch them all come and go.

Some I might get caught up in…just like a fish I may or may not take the bait.

The feelings that get most of my attention are the ones that will dictate my day.

So if I take the bait of contentment…I will be a content fish that day.

If I take the bait of worry and fear of the future…then this fish will be anxious.

The freedom is in the choosing.

The freedom is also in the knowing that even if I choose stinky bait that day…I will still be just fine.

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!
