The healing power of recovery

Healing is a matter of time, but sometimes it is a matter of opportunity

~ Hippocrates ~


One’s journey through recovery is a powerful healing process that exists among those faithful, courageous, and committed to change. This does not happen overnight. As much as we want to find a quick solution to a deep spiritual problem; we are gradually healing one day at a time.

It begins the moment we come to realize our dependence on substances is the reason for our sickness. We call on those who are already in recovery, enter into treatment, seek help for our physical ailments, and venture to seek out spiritual counsel.  Abstinence teaches us how to sustain short term recovery. Sustained and long term abstinence requires learning and growth toward an adaptive healing process of change.

We are to live in recovery by adopting healthier skill sets and awareness of moving toward a whole and fulfilling healthy lifestyle.

Recovery, therefore, involves our own participation in healthy and meaningful life activities. This is based on our identified values, interests, and beliefs. We are also mindful of our own present thoughts and feelings, managing them – even when they are seemingly disturbing and uncomfortable. As we are healing, we are also rediscovering (or discovering for the first time) who we are as individuals. This, hopefully, leads us toward conscious awareness as we begin to sustain balance in our lives.

I will focus on my own process of healing, taking one day at a time, experiencing my own conscious awareness in order to continue to sustain balance and harmony.
