Slogans For Living Life
Posted by Second Chance to Live on June 27, 2013
Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live. You are always welcome around my table. About a week ago I attended a support meeting and the topic of slogans came up. Slogans – in my understanding – are words or short phrases that contain principles that help to ground people in their recovery process. Slogans help me to remember what is important when I find myself frustrated, anxious, angry or fearful. Slogans in the process give me hope.
Below are a selection of slogans used by many recovery groups. I have also added a few of my own personal slogans – ones that I have discovered through my process that are particularly empowering to me. Take some time to read through and meditate on each of the slogans. You may find that what you discover will help you in your own recovery process – regardless of the path you find yourself walking my friend. The list is a sampling of slogans.
Easy Does It, One Day at a Time, Let Go and Let God, Progress Not Perfection,This Too Shall Pass, Keep the Focus on myself, Let it being with me, F.E.A.R. — False evidence appearing real, Mind your own business, Live and let Live, First things First, But for the Grace of God, What is my part?, Expectations – Premeditated resentments, Keep it Simple, How important is it?, I can’t, God can, I think I’ll let him, Trust God, clean house, help others
Think, Stinking Thinking, No is a complete sentence, Fake it until you make it, When in doubt don’t, Keep and Open Mind, W.A.I.T. – I am I Talking, W.A.I.S.T. – Why am I Still Talking, Why am I thinking this way?, Don’t react, Listen and Learn, Principles Over Personalities, Keep It Simple, Just For Today, Mind My Own Business, But for the Grace of God, Let It Begin With Me, Identify don’t Compare, Depression is anger turned inward, To thine own self be true, EGO – Edge God out, Just for today, Stick with the winners
