The Twelve Rewards

We can all have Hope, instead of desperation;
Faith, instead of despair;
Courage, instead of fear;
Peace of Mind, instead of confusion;
Self-respect, instead of self-contempt;
Self-confidence, instead of helplessness;
The respect of others, instead of their pity and contempt;
A clean conscience, instead of a sense of guilt;
Real friendships, instead of loneliness;
A clean pattern of life, instead of a purposeless existence;
the love and understanding of our families, instead of their doubts and fears;
and the freedom of a happy life, instead of the bondage of an alcoholic obsession.

I found it like; a life without these “Rewards” probably meaningless; life has its own twists and turns which many times left the successful learning for us and some time a failure. It takes ages to understand and realizes what life can give to us in stages and perhaps the only way to see it as the unique spontaneous source without which it is difficult to build the pathway to reach the level where it begins.
