New Story about Living Life and the Courage to Change…

I’m finally ready to bring this site to life! I’ve just asked a friend to share his powerful story of experience, strength and hope with us. Frank is one of those special people I have had the pleasure to meet through recovery on the internet. I was initially drawn to his blog because of the similarities in our stories.

Living life today on our own terms, we are both recovering alcoholic/addicts and served time in prison, lived a hard life and found our way to a new and wonderful life in sobriety. We both got out of the system and finished Parole. If you’ve ever been in the system, you know how “they”; the system, owns your life and how difficult it is to break free from those final chains that keep you bound to the system.  If I say too much more I will take away from the real power of Frank’s story.

Frank is a true inspiration and his life makes it clear that we can change. We can make different choices for our life. We are the change we wish to see in our lives.

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.
