Living life on life's terms is accepting life or reality as the way it is and dealing with life and the past as best a person can even though there are many disagreeable events and realities that one wishes were different, and not running and hiding behind drugs or alcohol. It is simple; giving up hope of a better past.

 
Living life on life's terms is accepting life or reality as the way it is and dealing with life and the past as best a person can even though there are many disagreeable events and realities that one wishes were different, and not running and hiding behind drugs or alcohol. It is simple; giving up hope of a better past. Sounds a lot like the Serenity Prayer.


 

Life on Life’s Terms

 

The earth has gave me life and strength to endure what I need for me,

Opening my eyes and my heart I came to believe.

Awakening the soul I gave my life to the will of recovery,

I sit, I stand, and I walk with security.

 

As a day goes on dusk to dawn,

Coming together I found where I belong.

Listening and learning has gave me peace,

Excepting my failures and defeats.

 

With humility today there are no insecurities,

For when I have truth, thus has serenity.

I can have, I cannot have, all the above,

Simply by saying there is a god I love!

 

Chasing my feelings I can grow indeed,

I pondered in thought, not sharing my greed.

Materials of man I greatly dismissed,

Blunder I shared and being so careless.

 

Today I can stay or be gone with the wind that blows by,

To carry my shame would bring me to stay high.

 

I said to my higher power "I AM DONE",

Living life on life’s terms that shall be my fun!

 

Author; Shane Wolfe


 


 

Learning to accept life on life's terms means no longer getting mad and grabbing a bottle or some drugs and disappearing from the scene. Learning that the world did not revolve around oneself; learn about one's senses of expectations and disappointments and accept the results; move on with life. Keeping cool and keep in check the HUGE roller coaster of feelings that occur in recovery and know that one "belongs" in this world.
