‘New Life Acceptance’ by Matt Kay

Manchester-Art-and-Culture-getawayHere’s another old blog from WITR blogger Matt Kay, this one from April 2012.

‘I’ve not been on here for absolutely ages but I’m still living the dream. I made it to two years clean and sober (Aprils Fools Day too!) Just thought I’d share this with you… it’s called “New Life Acceptance”, hence the title.
1. I have a life-threatening problem that once had me. I now take charge of my life and my addiction. I accept the responsibility.

2. Negative thoughts destroy only me. My first conscious sober act must be to remove negativity from my life.

3. Happiness is a habit I can develop. Happiness is created, not waited for.

4. Problems or issues bother me only to the degree I permit them to. I now better understand my problems and do not permit my problems to overwhelm me.

5. I am what I think. I am a capable, competent, caring, compassionate person.

6. Life can be ordinary or life can be great. Greatness is mine by a conscious effort.

7. Love can change the course of my world. Caring becomes all important.

8. The fundamental object of life is emotional and spiritual growth. I put my life in a proper order, knowing which my priorities are.

9. The past is gone forever, and I will no longer be victimized by it. I am a new person.

10. All love given is returned. I treasure all moments of my new life.

11. Enthusiasm is my daily exercise. I treasure all moments of my new life.

12. I am a competent person and have much life to give life. This is what I am and shall know it always.

13. I am responsible for myself and my actions. I am in charge of my mind, my thoughts and my life.

Stay strong, stay safe kids!’
