Part of living a spiritual life and living in recovery is being able to admit our mistakes, apologies and move on and improve from here on. I have been thinking about this a lot lately, I had started this blog on my journey but as I got busy and my life improved It sort of became less important, and I didn’t focus on updating this or adding new posts to help the person still struggling with addiction, or the person in recovery who is searching for some inspiration etc.
I hope to make it better by incorporating this into my overall plan and keep sharing on a weekly basis, and I hope you will forgive me for the past.
Happy recovery, keep trudging!
Each morning the sun starts rising again and needs to start as if it is its first day on this planet. We need to do the same if we want to connect with our higher power and start living a spiritual life each day. It as if we are starting at zero each morning. We get the opportunity to be free from yesterday’s mistakes and start with a clean slate each morning.
I have always read about “the spiritual experience” I read so much about it. The Big Book of AA talks a lot about it, but I never knew what does it feel like?
I recently worked all 12 steps again as outlined in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.
As a result of working the steps I have had a spiritual experience as have gotten a new life. The books also talks about helping others and seeing them recover. I just finished going through all 12 steps with a sponsee, and have seen him change in front of my eyes, what an amazing blessing.
I hope and plan in the near future to start writing about each step and how I took and worked that step.
You are worth recovery, everyone is worth it.
Just wanted to wish all my followers a Happy New Year!
This shall be a year of growth and recovery… If you are sober, you should be able to stay sober and help others.
If you are still struggling, I feel your pain, and my heart goes out to you and your loved ones. May you find the strength to surrender to a Higher Power one day at a time and get and stay sober soon.
Happy Recovery and a fabulous 2013
I think and strongly believe, that a big part of recovery is recognizing our spiritual moments we have each day.
It doesn’t have to be anything great or a major epiphany, but its rather something small that happens to you, and if you are in touch with reality or your Higher Power (which I choose to call God) you just feel it, its like a little wow moment.
I think they happen to all of us all the time, we are just so busy with our lives that we don’t even stop or recognize them for what they are, if we can pause and see it it can transform our lives for the better.
Have you had one today? I did! If you did as well feel free to comment below about your experience.
Are you in pain? or Do you have a loved one that is?
Pain is never an easy thing to deal with, but it can bring us to a higher level of growth and recovery.
When we are in pain, we have a choice. We can either kick and scream and ask: Why me? Its not fair! or we can just accept it as a teacher and keep calm and collected. Go to friends for love and support, stay sober in all our programs, and see what we can learn from this experience. What is it that God is trying to teach us in this.
When we do this instead of blaming and kicking and screaming we can get to a new higher level of recovery and healing.
So if you’re in pain (and who’s not?) take this as a stepping stone to new growth and healing.
