Joyous Survival 10/10

When I was actively using in my addiction, I was seeking comfort and joy in the chemical substance. The “relief” would come…but it was temporary and conditional.

I gave my power to feel good to the drug. I was still a seeker of joy – but I was going the wrong way.

Coming into recovery and shedding some layers of old ideas, negative beliefs and self destructive behaviors…..I have been able to truly find joy in the most natural sense.

I am learning to focus on where “I feel” good.

It is not always easy as the world can be very loud and demanding regarding what makes “them” feel good.

However I have to bring it back to me…and my source of joy.

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!

  2. That sounds like listening with your heart. Beautiful. Not an easy thing but it gives you just what youโ€™ve found, happiness without the aid of external stimuli. What a beautiful journey youโ€™re on. Sending you positive vibes. Dee
