The “Good” Consequences

I am not a product of my circumstances; I’m a product of my decisions. I know I’ve talked about life giving you lemons before and that sometimes one must get creative. Creativity is one of my fortes, or so I’d like to think. I believe expressing your thoughts and feelings in words, art, or whatever it is you use as a healthy outlet to unleash some of the shit that bogs down the mind, creates beautiful masterpieces. I used to be really good at “playing the victim”. And at certain points of my life, have been a victim to traumatic events. However each and every instance you are given a choice, and each and every choice comes with a consequence. Consequence can be a scary word, however yet again, once you change that thinking and your actions, consequences can and will result in something good. In early recovery it feels consequences from those drinking and rigging days haunt and plague you; however I promise you, if you continue to make better choices, better consequences will come your way. And no I’m not saying life instantaneously gets better and all your troubles and worries dissipate; I’m saying hard work and hard decisions can and WILL pay off.

1.) Better choices

2.) Patience

3.) Faith

4.) Change

5.) Paying it forward

6.) Smiles and Sunshine

7.) Unconditional love

8.) Elise Corinne, she is full of smiles and sunshine

9.) Jamie, my devoted wife

10.) The GOOD consequences

Change is inevitable, so why not use it towards the greater good, bettering yourself, and bettering the lives of those who it affects because you and those loved ones truly deserve it. Oh, and if no one has told you they love you today...I love you! Yours truly,


Anna
