"I am not in prison. I am at a spiritual retreat in a gated
community" - Llama Boy
LIFE ON LIFE'S TERMSLife on life's terms is not another excuse for being powerless.
People, places, and things are going to do things on a daily
basis. There will be things that will happen that I have to
accept. My sponsor shared with me early on that I am not
powerless, until I start using drugs. One of the reasons I used,
was to avoid dealing with life on life's terms. I must accept
that I am an addict in order to stay clean. If I am unwilling to
accept life on life's terms, I am going to be miserable. I
grabbed on to the serenity prayer. The serenity prayer was my
first glimpse of letting go. Living life on life's terms, means
doing the best that I can, even though there are many
disagreeable events and realities that I wish were different.
"Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude towards us."
