POTENTIAL

“Education is helping the child realize his potentialities.”
— Eric Fromm

When I was drinking, I behaved like a child. I behaved not just like a child but “childish”. I was so dependent upon my alcohol, so addicted, that I never realized my potential in life. I never realized the gift of life!

Today I have a spiritual program that offers me the world; it sets no limits on my horizons; it encourages me to discover my potential and live it. Today I am learning new languages, visiting different countries and enjoying alternative cultures, making new friendships and, most importantly, discovering the “bigness” of God in His world. The education I have gained in my sobriety seems unending and unstoppable. Each day produces a new opportunity and a different experience. Everyday is a time to receive.

Teach me to journey through the words into the experience.
