Yesterday, I was struggling with feeling hopeless, alone, and scared…which is why I posted “Reasons to Recover.” I kept thinking that it was’t worth it, that my life has no purpose. Well, I am here arent I? So that must mean that there is a purpose for my life. Maybe I dont know exactly what that purpose is yet, but I am here for a reason, and so are all of you. When I look at that picture of recovery below, a couple parts really stand out to me. Finding love is a piece of that picture that touched my heart. Isnt that what life is all about? Experiencing love for others? There is always that “what if” in the back of my mind telling me I may not find that special someone who I love so much and want to spend the rest of my life with. Then I have to remind myself that I am still young and have plenty of time for that to happen. Besides, you can never really run out of time to find love, and you dont always need a man to experience love. When I think about love in my life now, I think about my family and friends and the people who care enough to help and support me every single day. Traveling, sunsets, and Christmas are the other pieces of that picture that stand out to me, because they are three things that I value and love about this life; they make me feel happy and the most alive when I experience them. What keeps you in recovery? Is there any part of the picture that stands out to you? Life is full of so many beautiful adventures and experiences that you deserve to be a part of-don’t be afraid to live your life to the fullest and do the things that make you happy.
