Today is a new day , I don’t need to use today . I received a message through Facebook yesterday that really hit home with me , not to say all my messages were in some way rewarding. This particular message was from a person solely for the playing of a game. She proceeded to tell me her story in such a way that I felt close to her , as in we have lived the same life when it came to drugs. She said one thing that I know i’ve said in this blog before, referring to a lifelong problem and that I needed to keep on my toes so to speak and not get to comfortable with my recovery. This hit me so hard yesterday , I think I know everything sometimes , but the fact of the matter is without the help of others there is no way I would have succeeded this far.
So I think curtain people need to hear my gratitude , and I would like anyone reading this to hear it too. First and most of all there are three people who I consider as saving me from myself . Laura and Samantha for bringing me home and out of the pit I was in. The other is Julie , she was the first person to comment on my blog , at that time I was in a dark place, she lifted me out of this place so I could continue my life. The next people on my list are my parents and Sue for giving me a place to not only live , but to listen to my rambling and not judge . The next one is Teresa which without her comments , I wouldn’t have learned things I was totally in the wrong about. The commenting of Patricia , Christine ,Lisa my sister and Autumn are all very important to me as well , Patricia has been talking me through my messed up life since before anyone else knew about my drug problem. Missy has just read my blog for the first time yesterday and has already given me some very good advise and a web site I wish to pass on http://thesecret.tv/ please check this out as it is all about positive thinking. The main friend in my recovery is Sandy she has messaged me several times with her unconditional friendship and spoken to me and made me think . She has given me great ideas that I have incorporated in to my recovery that have given me success. There are others that have read this blog that I hope continue to do so , please comment if you wish all are welcome here. I am not trying to single people out , I love all of you for helping me and you will be in my debt forever, as you all have given me life.
I have read that gratitude is a big part of recovery , as we are all thankful for different things . I am thankful for my family and friends , but I am also thankful for the day , in which we all live and breathe. I am thankful for the sights and sounds of this day, as in the bright sunny days we enjoy or the sounds of the birds to looking up at the stars . I think most of us miss this in our daily routine , I’m here to say I’m glad I have this back. The urgency of our lives is in my opinion going to be our demise . I am also thankful for this higher power in my life , as it has defiantly made it better.
People we all are in this together and I’m proud to be apart of this world again. Thanks for being apart of mine , you are all great . Everyone I am an addict and I feel transcendent….Have a great day..!!
