6/365 - We Are What We Believe

Tonight I went to see Frank Turner play the Roxy Theater in Los Angeles. He is an engaging performer and his music is tailor made for involvement and interaction from the audience.

“We are what we believe” is a lyric to a song of his titled “Poetry Of The Deed” and has become a touchstone for me during my sobriety. In recovery we are taught that our thoughts become our beliefs, which become our actions, which, in turn, become our habits. Frank Turner states that more succinctly in his lyric.

Tonight a fan bought some drinks for Frank, and when they offered them to him, he declined, telling the audience that he'd quit drinking. His new record is called “Recovery” so maybe there will be more touchstone lyrics awaiting me when it is released next month.
