Since a bad attitude is like a flat tire and I cannot go anywhere until I change it, I woke up today and have this idea to share positive input here. You may write your own too.

The first step to living the life I want isleaving the life I don’t want. Taking the first step forward is always the hardest But then each step forward gets easier and easier. And each step forward gets me closer and closeruntil eventually What had once been invisible starts to be visible. And what had once felt impossible starts to feel possible.

Some people will like me for no reason, Some people will not like me for any reason. Whom I choose to spend the most time, thoughts, and energy on, Depend on how much I like myself. By just staying near to people who treat me poorly, I am telling them it’s OK to do so. I will only keep close to me those who treat me right.
Sometimes the person I want the most Is the person I am best without.
Today, I am treating myself right. I am removing toxic people and places in my life. For being with no one is better than being with the wrong one.

It's not a book actually, but just a compilation formed in my head through my personal experiences, and understanding of different materials I read (including quotations). Usually I think about things for its meanings and lessons and how can I apply them. Same thing goes with what I read. I consider myself a student of life for a lifetime.

Thank you Light and Loving My Life! My life had lots of struggles, hardships, and pain. If I cannot continue to be positive, I don’t know where would I be now. I’m sharing these here because I hope to encourage those who are hurting and losing motivation to see the brighter side of life and never ever give up but to keep moving forward.

I also relate to trying to be this amazingly good person, to my PoA. In contrast to my PoA I was very good, but in relation to non-addicts with healthy lives I was actually struggling to keep up. Like really struggling. I was addicted to the image of myself as good in comparison to him. It's using, he was my drug.
Thanks for the thread. My positive thought: If I want good things in my life there's always someone here to give them to me- me!
"You deserve better than something that may be comfortable for you but you already know doesn't work and that you'll be complaining about soon enough and hoping that something or someone else will do what you can't even do for yourself. You deserve better - you deserve change".

Thanks to all! You inspired me. LA people are survivors! When we take back our power and use it for our own needs instead of wasting it to our addiction, we become people of positivity and purpose! Let us keep it up. Let us prove that we can live so much better without a POA, because we are a complete person on our own…

Don’t ever say you’re not good enough! If that person can’t see how amazing you are, Then they are the one who’s not good enough for you.

“Once the storm is over, You won't remember how you made it through, How you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over, But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, You won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm is all about.”
The positive energy at this thread is beautiful. All actions start w/ a thought. Thought block and replace w/ any one of these positive messages and the outcome will be positive. Many blessings to each of you today. Thank you codepnomore for starting such a wonderful thread.

Living a Positive Legacy...
Did you know the Nobel Peace Prize is named after Alfred Nobel, the Swedish industrialist who invented dynamite? How did this come to be?
When Alfred’s brother died, a newspaper mistook him for Alfred. It printed his obituary with the headline, “The Merchant of Death Is Dead,” describing Alfred as a man who made his fortune helping people kill one another.
He was cut to the heart and vowed to change his legacy. When Alfred really died eight years later, he left $9 million to fund awards for people whose work benefited humanity—thus, the birth of Nobel Peace Prizes.
Alfred Nobel was given a rare gift: the opportunity to read his own obituary, and make changes before it was too late...
What might you do if given the same opportunity?
“If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else. -Booker T. Washington (1856-1915)
