The Future, is where we can dream of endless possibilities, a place that holds all our wishes, hopes and goals we now place on ourselves to maybe one day own our own home or buy that new car. That unknown abyss we strive to understand. We set plans in motion to aspire to and conquer all those things we have hoped for, so by staying clean and sober, we increase our chances of making it a reality.
The elusive Tomorrow that none of us are promised, leaves us to wonder how do we control the outcome? By staying in recovery, we can make plans and expect them to turn out as we hoped and prayed for to some degree; again, we control the outcome, if we are staying out of addiction and actively working towards our goals. Maybe going back to school and giving you the courage to have the job you always wanted or dreamed of with retraining and working towards completing your goal.
Because there is so much of the Past that is now part of this equation, that we face today, just coming into recovery as the darkness left behind by years of Bad choices and the stigma of the labels put upon us during those days. We now must let go and no longer carry the brokenness that we feel inside, that fear, shame and self-loathing will no longer serve any purpose other than to drag you back into addiction. Acceptance that the past can’t be changed, we let go and turn it over to God, the higher power in your life that will guide you if you Trust.
So by Faith, today rushes in with the rising of the morning sun, fresh and clean like the new soul you hope to be, listening to the sounds of the birds singing and life passing by outside as we put our plans in motion. Today we will embrace the new us, and enjoy the dreams we hold dear in our hearts of a life filled with laughter, success and joy. Today we take one more careful step in our plans for tomorrow to become the reality we pray for daily. A tomorrow we clearly see is worth the struggles today may bring of letting go of old people, places, and things that hurt us in the past.
This will give you the greatest chance of having the world, you want to live in, where you can have peace in your heart every day, recovery is this place and as long as you are doing the next right thing in your life, everything will work out, in time.
