Day 23. Choose a quote that means something to you

Share the quote. Where did this quote come from? Who said/wrote it? What does it mean to you? Why? How has it helped you?

This is taken from a greetings card given to me by a friend when I was going through recovery.  It acknowledges recovery as a process and a journey.  I have it on my fridge along with other inspirational pictures and messages to remind me of what I have achieved and what I have to live for.


Every Goal that has ever been reached
began with just one step
and the belief it could be attained

Dreams really can come true
but they are most often the result
of hard work, determination
and persistence.

When the end of the journey
seems impossible to reach,
remember that all you need to do
is take one more step.

Stay focused on your goal
and remember...
each small step
will bring you a little closer.

When the road becomes hard to travel
and it feels as if you'll never reach the end...
look deep in your heart
and you will find strength you never knew you had,

Believe in yourself,
and remember that I believe in you too.

Jason Blume

Another card given to me on my Birthday read,

If I could give you just one gift on your Birthday,
I would give you the ability to see yourself through my eyes.
Only then you would realise how special you are.
