Today is an amazing day for me. I’m 30 days clean! I didn’t think that after having almost 7 months clean and then relapsing that my first 30 days would excite me so much, but it really has! I’ve come to learn that every single day clean is such a blessing! I’m really on an amazing journey today in recovery.
No Longer In The Woods
I’ve been thinking a lot about my past, my present, and my future lately. When people say that the gifts of recovery are amazing, they’re not lying. How freaking blessed am I as an addict to be able to call a transitional living home for women, have no money, have to pick up my belongings at my camp in the woods, and be picked up by another recovering addict and have a roof over my head that night, a bed to sleep in, and food in my stomach! Thinking back on it now I’m like, wow that’s really crazy… but true!
I Am Deserving
I actually have a home now, and a family. Surrounded by awesome friends! My boyfriend is wonderful and treats me like a queen. I have a great job, or should I actually say a great career now! I think to myself what had this addict done to deserve everything I have in my life today? It’s truly a blessing and a miracle, and it’s called the gifts of recovery! Everything I have I owe to all of the incredible girls in my home and to my fellowship in Narcotics Anonymous. I could never have done this without you all!
A Beautiful Soul
Although, there is one person who deserves all the gratitude in the world from me,and that’s Angie here at Da Vinci! Angie believed in me at my lowest point in my life when I didn’t even believe in myself. She took me in and assured me I would be OK… and I’m OK! I love her so very much for all she has done for me and being my friend!
Gratitude is a huge part of my story, and I’m filled with it today! I’m still learning just exactly who Jen is, but I do know she’s a grateful person! Narcotics Anonymous has changed my life in so many ways. The gifts of recovery are possible today… So once you surrender to a new way of life, be prepared for the blessings and the miracles to overflow!
