There is something to doing a thing simply for the goodness of doing it.
There is freedom in doing something because it’s the right thing—the good thing—to do, because it’s the healthy thing for here and now.
There is a quote that I’ve seen attributed to St. Augustine:
”Wrong is wrong, even if everyone is doing it, and right is right, even if no one is doing it.”
Doing what is right is vital to recovery. Fudging even a little bit can start a downward spiral into our addiction.
Do what is right. Forget the results. There is no need for justification, for retribution, for reward. Let go of tomorrow—the fear of what might happen and the expectation of what you want to happen.
Do what’s right and good for the sheer joy of doing right.
