Thanksgiving is around the corner, and this can be a huge trigger for people in recovery. It can be very difficult being around certain relatives without taking the edge off, but keep in mind that your sobriety, your health, and your peace of mind is MORE important than anything else. While everyone is sipping on their wine or cocktails, why don’t you whip up a beautiful infused water? You can even use sparkling water to make it a little more fancy. You will help combat the bloat from the rich thanksgiving meal, AND you’ll be properly hydrated to hit those Black Friday sales. Photo: @rachels.fit.kitchen
My best friend took this picture of me and my daughter. He passed away but not before leaving a dent in the Universe I live in. I was grateful for this day. This is Wellfleet Beach in Cape Cod. You can literally see the appreciation in my daughters body language. For all things to come together in harmony takes Gods hands to pull the chords. Friendship and Family will always be the soundtrack to my life.

When we made the decision to leave all of our addictions behind us, we at that moment decided to transform our lives. Maybe your addiction was born out of loss or maybe you suffered loss after you left your addiction behind.
Either way, you started a journey of transformation into recovery. If your loss, disrupted that, maybe it's time to look at it once again.
How would your life be transformed if you took action right now? Take time to really visualize that.
Now, what is one step you can take that will lead you towards that vision?
“The Truth is not always what it seems. The Truth that you are looking for lies within. Within the deep wellspring that lives inside your heart and soul. Allow yourself and gift yourself the time it takes to be All with your own Oneness. The Oneness that is you. The Oneness that is All. Find the time. Take the time. Be the time and All will be well, for it is already well.” #jesusunpluggedfromreligion#jesus#recovery#sober#spiritualrecovery#aa#sobriety
When the light of the soul returns, a grey world of drudgery begins to sparkle; the multihued qualities of creation become visible. Instead of the endless pursuit of pleasure, life beckons us on a search for meaning: the colours of life speak to us, telling us their story, singing to us their song. The music of life returns, a music that is creation alive. A real dialogue between our inner self and our outer life begins to unfold as we directly participate in the hidden mystery of life coming alive: it comes alive within ourself and within the world. In the light of the soul the barriers between inner and outer dissolve, and we no longer have to dig beneath the surface for some semblance of purpose to our lives.

At Mandi's Grandmas funeral, I saw her Grandpa, he was a broken hearted man with a shattered spirit who had lost the most important thing in the world to him. Now I wish I could explain what changed, but I can't. All I can say is I didn't want to lose everything. I didn't want to feel that pain of losing an angel let alone 3. The reality of my situation was I was in full blown addiction. I would wake up from dope sickness around 6 A.M. I would snort 12 pills which looked like a third of a cup of flour plopped on a counter then I'd snort a few every 2 hours, not to get high but to not get sick. I'd stop taking them at 10 P.M so that when I went to bed I'd feel somewhat comfortable knowing (or hoping) I wouldn't die in my sleep. That was my day. Take pills, find pills, not much else. I was just a slave to a substance and it was stealing everything from me. I came to the conclusion I needed to get clean, but not quite yet, I had to use what pills I had left so I tried to ween down to lessen the withdrawals. Hahaha this never works. #soberlife#sober#sobriety
