HOPE 9/26

Last night I was in a recovery meeting where the energy was booming! A personal friend was receiving her medallion of 2 years. She was surrounded by people who had seen her come in, fight the good fight and survive and thrive one more day.

In recovery we are taught to receive tokens or symbols of our length of clean time in front of the others. It is taught that it is not for us to celebrate ourselves but it is for the new person in the room.

It is for the person that does not know that it is quite possible yet to get 30 days clean, 90 days – 1 year – 20 years. So by sharing our experiences we liberate the others and let them know it is possible – it’s HOPE.

I just realized I never really understood the true concept of hope until right now.

Wow more will be revealed.

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!
