24 years ago today - I checked into a treatment center for my drug and alcohol problem. I feel a bit in awe that now I look back and have somehow made it this far without ever having to take a drink or drug again. I didn't do this alone - that's for sure. Life happens and it can get hard.
The universe always provided me with tools, support and the knowing in my being that I was here for a higher purpose then to drown myself in that mess of drugs, alcohol and self hatred.
Today I'm in a completely different place in my life and in my being. One of unlimited potential, of freedom from the active addiction, one of regular sleep, healthy nutrition, loving family, great friends, creativity oozing out of my pores, and a drive to keep searching, seeking, growing, learning, settling in to my own being and helping others. A life that lacks chaos, and has a lot less drama. Is it lacking in fun? um.. no. I actually learned how to laugh, how to trust, how to be a friend, how to play, how to cook, how to lighten up, how to be goofy, and how to love. Of course that starts with me. Loving myself. The biggest art project of all. It's a daily process. Progress rather than perfection.
Now - moving forward - I'd love to share with you all a little gift of gratitude. Gratitude for being there for me, of your support and kindness, of your love and acceptance, of your examples of what it means to live a full and rich life.
