Act As If, submitted anonymously

During the years I’ve been in recovery, my attitudes, beliefs, priorities and desires have been altered, and that miracle comes directly from working my spiritual program.  Mother Theresa said, “To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.”  If I want to stay in the light of my Higher Power, every day I need to keep refilling the lamp.  Sometimes it’s a matter of just doing the right action regardless of how I feel or what I think, since my “feeler” and “thinker” often need adjusting.  I heard this said years ago and it has been very helpful to me throughout my years in recovery and has played a large part in who I am today:  If I consistently act like the person I want to be, someday I will be the person I act like.
