Twenty-Four Hours a Day
The fear of being alone brings strange results. It may cause us to cling to arrangements and relationships that are unsatisfactory or destructive. Some of us become enablers for loved ones who are still drinking; quite often this can involve putting up with abuse we shouldn't have to endure.
When we recognize that we are holding on to unsatisfactory relationships for such reasons, we need to apply the program more diligently in our own lives. Usually, we need more self-esteem--a belief that we deserve satisfactory relationships. We do not have to be alone, but neither do we have to endure what amounts to abuse and rejection.
Believe more deeply.
Hold your face up to the Light,
even though for the moment you do not see.

Persist, and small actions lead to big results. Persist, and you make time work in your favor.
If you give up after the first or second attempt, your level of success will be mediocre at best. When you persist for as long as it takes, you’re able to create magnificent, outstanding achievements.
Persistence is not a complicated or inaccessible strategy. All you have to do is choose to keep going.
After a successful day, instead of resting on your accomplishments, keep going. After a disappointing day, instead of wallowing in self pity, keep going.
Persist, and the small steps forward add together to create great advances. Persist, and even the setbacks will eventually work in your favor.
Set your sights on a worthy, meaningful goal, and persist. With persistence, you can take yourself anywhere you choose.
