What an achievement you have done. You have completed Day one as smoke free, you are a NON Smoker. If not, you will have to start again until the day you have had NO cigarettes within 24 hours. To be a non smoker, is possible. The worst is over, you will be able to see yourself a non smoker as you have just completed the first 24 hours. You may have taken a few walks and noticed that the walk will push the urge out of your mind. You could’ve been utilising the breathing techniques, remember this is the manual. We have other books within the series TAKe CoNTRoL that will... Read More
Many people will thing you can never achieve when you have a drug problem. How about a drug problem where most people gave up?
That's right, he learnt the secret of how to turn your life around from the diversity of life to the brillant career he created.
Standing back in the shadows, this man not only set out with a change of attitude, he had a goal. Many of the drug addicts today don't understand that a goal, is a future. They have been told so much negativity that they can't see ever achieving anything.
Most of the severe drug addicts all have a similar problem... Read More
Have you ever set a goal and decided you can make it.
I was 29 years, or there abouts. I never had done much with my life up until that point. I was moving in the circle where most of us would never want to go.
Going to the gym daily, beach, and then not working I was living where most of you never ever wanted on the streets in Sydney.
I had met a girl, life changes they say well this part girls did change my life. I had to set a goal and get a job, being in love as they say.
I had long hair, muscles on muscles, people would look at me. I was scary, well I walked... Read More
We all have certain things which make us feel happier, content, less stressed, and wanting to claim more from life. For some, it’s the smoothness of silk against their skin, the adoring face of a puppy, a friendly encounter, a child’s laughter, or the sensuality of a lovers kiss. True, all these things can bring a huge smile to ones face and they definitely do mine, but I’ve also learned that weather can have a humongous impact on an individual’s emotional outlook, giving many a needed boost after the depressing effects of grey skies among bone-chilled winters. And for me, and many others,... Read More
If we had it to do all over again
We'd make so much better decisions.
Only opening doors we should enter in
Building lives without all the pretensions.
With character above reproaching,
And no reason to second-guess,
With this sin no longer encroaching
Doing nothing we need to confess.
And, if they had the chance to redo it,
Might forgiveness be not so held back?
And peace found by those who pursue it?
Would grace not be calling us back?
The "we's" and the "they's" can begin again
When both set aside... Read More
Inspiration for the last 2.5 hours started by inspiration of my surroundings and by who had influenced me during my childhood.
French Street. North Sydney was where my Private Francis had grown up. Many months of research to find the home, the start of the journey that would be documented in some parts by In The Cross Fire.
As I walked away from French Street, the words from the Banksia Man rang loud and clear. Why?
This was circling in my head, Why had I stopped and listened and nobody else had. It was a Sunny afternoon in January. I arrived at my car, thinking I... Read More
To kind of paint you a picture of what it was like on an average day in the drop-in, let me give you a little info so you can maybe visualize it better. I know when I started working there I truly had no idea how much I would love and hate it at the same time. The love part came with my ability to see beauty in all people . I just usually choose to focus on the positive no matter what the situation. Working there that certainly was a helpful thing. The hate part came from the frustration of knowing I could do so much more. Unfortunately when you work for non-profit there is only so... Read More
