In recent days I have been in deep thought about this whole recovery thing. What does it look like? How does it work? What are the pro’s of being part of a recovery program/group and how important is that aspect? Many thoughts have come to my mind. So, I would like to share them with you! I know one thing for absolute certain, honesty is key! Coming, just as we are and entering into a conversation with others who are dealing with similar circumstances is invaluable. We don’t need to pretend we have it all together. We don’t need to put on our “phony face”. We don’t need to come prepared to give advice or have all the answers. We simply must be willing to desire a better way of life and put ourselves out there to face whatever it is that is challenging us. No judgements, no expectations of how it should look. I love the 12 steps as they are a remedy with our higher power’s help (of course) to heal and be happy, no matter what our situation. It is possible, but it not easy and it does take time and effort and commitment. If that is something that interests you, don’t put it off. The longer you wait the more difficult it becomes to make a change. God bless each of you on your journey through this life.
