Each morning I sit on the couch with my coffee and before I read my three newspapers I like to read something that inspires me or redirects my thinking. I have a big pile of recovery and spiritual and self-help books. One of my favorites is a small paperback called, "The Soul Workout" by Helen H Moore. The subtitle is "Getting and Staying Spiritually Fit". I like that. I can relate my recovery to fitness, Pilates, running, swimming so this book always hits home.
Here's a gem from today's reading:
"Live like a good tenant who is asked to house-sit a mansion. (Because that's actually what you are.) Don't treat your body or your life like a rock star in a hotel room."
