Hope and beauty 11/18

I felt these words while I was walking:

Hope and beauty are not far. They are within your heart.

Kindness, love and being gentle are all there too.

For me to get to those beautiful states of being, I first need to trust.

I have to trust that I am here on this planet loved by all the angels above…because I am supposed to be.

I have to trust that those beautiful states within can be shared with the others.

Trust gives me the courage to share.

I have no idea what anybody else may need but when I lead with love and appreciation for their life as well as my own…then I figure I can’t be anything but helpful.

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!

      1. Love will show you trust. When someone shows you trust, and especially in difficult circumstances for them…that love will raise itself within you. You appreciate truly what it has taken for them to expose their hearts to you. The same if it is you giving that trust. And just as an example, if someone does something for you and you can see they have put much effort into it…it is very difficult to say no or avoid it…simply because of the trust/love it has taken to open so much too you. They have dared their heart to you, they have trusted you to not hurt them, and each time it happens that trust builds, that heart opens more…that is why it is so painful with someone you have opened to and love very much and something bad happens. It is indeed a crushing blow. But on the day you can love that person regardless…then you are truly loving yourself. It cannot be reached until we love and trust ourselves…and it is indeed reachable 😀❤️🙏🏽

      2. Thank you for that Mark…I have seen and experienced the love and trust first hand in recovery over and over again. Every time any addict shared their truth at a meeting to help themselves and to help another – it’s all based on love. That’s why I feel such an amazing energy in the rooms where people have the love of self to either lend a hand to another or to ask for one themselves ❤️💕❤️all sorts of bells are ringing right now Mark…much appreciated my friend
