Some facts about myself-
1. I live in the moment, today.
2. I write at least thirty minutes a day in the morning usually around 5:30 AM before anyone is awake.
3. I try to find a lesson in every negative experience instead of getting angry and frustrated and I write about it.
4. I dance every morning while I get ready for the day. I was dancing across a bridge in a park the other day while walking my dogs and noticed a group of Asian Tourists pointing, laughing and taking my picture, the cars driving by me we staring, some laughing too…this did not stop me, I continued to walk and dance with my happy muts. They may have gotten a good chuckle but I bet they didn’t have as much fun as I did!
5. I love big gaudy costume jewelry. I never used to, in fact I never cared much for my appearance while I was in active addiction. I never cared much for my appearance in recovery either until I finally let go and learned what “just for today” and living in the moment really meant.
6. There is no one right path to recovery. I feel that one must find their own path by taking in lessons and suggestions from several different philosophies of recovery. I prefer the 12 steps, some Eastern philosophy, a Christian God, and a solid foundation of recovering friends.
7. I am grateful for my life. I believe everything happens for a reason and if I had not been where I was, in active addiction, I would not be where I am today. I am on a path to recovery and it is a lifestyle, a journey and if I come to the end of it, it means I have moved on and it will be time to say good-bye. I will be on my way to hang with my dad again, in my perfect heaven, my perfect peace.
After some careful consideration, I nominate the following blogs for the Shining Through Recovery Award:
