Celebrating My Sobriety Today!

icon not text smaller article intro iconAs I come to close of July 11, 2009, I have had a blessed day and I’m full of gratitude today! I just made 6 yrs. clean and sober! That doesn’t sound like much, but for a woman like me it is something I once never thought would be possible. My life today is absolutely wonderful.

The gift of sobriety is by far the most precious gift I have accepted in my  life. Before sobriety, I had nothing, I lost everything that mattered…today with sobriety I have everything I could have dreamed and hoped for in my life and more. Living sober is not always easy, life still happens. I’ve learned so much and have so much more to learn. I’m so excited about my life and living today.

Today, I experience change, and personal growth because that is my current path and chosen direction for my life. I have a spiritual life that is so glorious. I have changed many old beliefs, accepted life, and learned that I’m responsible for everything that happens in my life today. I know that I can change my thoughts about situations and events and they surely will change. I know that all change is for the best, even if it doesn’t appear to be at that time.

Recovery

If you are in recovery, you know that with sobriety comes a new life and constant changes. It took a major change to get to sobriety. That change was a clear choice. If we can make that big a change in our life, we can make any change by our own choice. How we feel and think about our choices are the terms we choose to live our life by.

It is the same for everybody, recovery or not. We have good and great days, difficult and hard days. We have many challenges to face and live through. We can get through anything if we just hold that belief with faith, have clear intentions and thinking, do our part in the footwork everyday and leave the results to something much greater than we are. 

If you are part of a 12-step program, we are fortunate to have access to many tools to help us learn to live our lives on life’s terms, make the right choices and changes we need in our live’s. One thing we learn is that the experience, strength and hope of others is something we need for guidance and inspiration. We also learn that we must share our own experience, strength and hope with others as part of our ongoing recovery.

I would like to share experiences from people in all walks of life. This is with the hope that you will find information, answers and some great resources to help you with making changes and choices in your life. I’d like to help you create the path that you desire, after all it is our journey in life that really counts! I look forward to sharing “Living Life on Life’s Terms” with you.
