    Life tends to throw us curve balls. what we do to overcome these catastrophic events is up to us. Whether we divert to using or whether we chose to stand. It is truly up to us as individuals to make a choice. Our decisiveness in key moments of struggle help determine how decisive we are. Hard work and dedication is needed to provide a pathway for success in overcoming. Though life can be quite drastic, having us experience our highest extremity, we must prevail. What is it to throw a white flag before ourselves or cross our wrist to be shackled? The key is to constantly stand up for ourselves, no matte what. Has anyone else made a choice to take charge?

    A very strong and motivating message. We indeed have to take charge out of every circumstances we go through in life. No matter what fate gives us, we should all learn how to embrace them and have the strength to tackle all obstacles we encounter along the way. This is how recovery from addiction also challenges us. In each step we make towards sobriety, there will always be something that will challenge our perseverance and character. During these kinds of moments, we need the strength of mind, heart and soul to be able to keep on moving no matter what. :)

    That's so true. We always have a choice. It just depends on what kind of decision we're going to make. At the end of the day, we have only got ourselves to blame. That's why I am telling you people that as long as you are alive, make the best out of your time here on earth. Be productive, and feel fulfilled. Don't let your addictions/cravings ruin your whole life.

    Thank you for the post. I can testify that I have made the choice. It wasn't easy, and on many occasions I thought I was doing the choice, but I simply wasn't and slipped back to the old decision-making habits. But for once, I actually feel like I am becoming the changed person I've dreamed of, and it feels amazing.

    Well, I was disappointed last week when I found out that neurosurgeon I started consulting turned out to be another greedy doctor who only treat properly those patients who pay him in cash. It was so disappointing, but the hard truth. I'm doing my part though, this was a definite curve ball, but I am not going to give up. After all I'll have to start all over in the country I'm going to move to :)
