It goes both ways, right? Practicing the wrong thing over and over expecting different results? Hard head, soft ass. Hard ass, soft head. Whatever doesn't kill us makes us stronger, if we allow it. I needed every drunk that led up to the last one (knock on wood). But if there are GOOD miracles, there are probably BAD miracles, too, though most people view a miracle as something positive. We get what we focus on or pray for.
We can make a Vision Board for a beautiful future or we can make one for a rotten future.
