It is always with excitement that I wake up in the morning wondering what my intuition will toss up to me, like gifts from the sea. I work with it and rely on it. It’s my partner.
— Jonas Salk
Each and every day holds the potential for an opportunity to grow and expand our lives. Recovery is the second chance we deserve in order to explore our true potential. Andrew Carnegie was once quoted as saying, “we all have two major opportunities in life, is this your first or last?”
We get in life what we give therefore, we need to give all we have, to be the best we can be. One of the greatest benefits of mutual support groups is the strength we build by helping others to achieve their goal of recovery. By offering support directly or indirectly we build support, we encourage others and we take the next step we need to move forward in our lives.
The twelve-steps are a guideline for overcoming our challenges and living a spiritual, joy filled life. However, without the fellowship, recovery is tentative at best. We all need others in our lives, none of us has the ability to live socially suppressed. Mutual support whether it is AA, NA, CR, EA, or simply a support group of friends with a common agenda or focus makes the difference.
We get in life what we give, so go share your positive hope for the future. Believe and you will achieve, spread the word!
Go, Go, Go…
