We are all given choices in life. We can either fail or succeed in the choices we make. Every new year I make a resolution and every year I fail. I just make wrong choices. I struggle with my defects of character and then I beat myself up. I have a choice today…..Today I choose to live my life the best that I can be. I have been struggling with pain lately. Physical and emotional pain can cause self destructive choices. Options may not arise so easily when you are in a state of either physical or emotional pain. This year I plan on noting the causes of pain in my life and what I did to find a healthy solution. My personal definition of a healthy solution is……A healthy choice that causes no harm to me or those around me. So far my struggles are dealing with physical pain. My year started of with physical therapy for the fifth month. I am slowly coming to accept the fact that I may never be healed of pain. I want to mask the pain but I know that is not the answer. Sometimes in life we have to address the issue head on. We can either drown in our emotional and physical pain or we can seek the help that we need. Choosing recovery is a decision that only you can make. Admitting that you have an addiction takes courage. Maintaining recovery is a choice. It is a choice that will be life altering. Choose to let go of what is holding you back from a full recovery from your addictive choices. The decision is yours.
Message for Recovery: Healthy choices are life altering. Live in a state of recovery. One Day At A Time.
