Learning to ENJOY the holiday celebrations.....12 STEP style!

Why stress?  I can only do what it is in my power to do!  Think of this time as an opportunity to GIVE BACK in service to those closest to us whom we love and remembering those who have been a blessing to us along the journey!  Maybe a little more service doing it "Santa Style" ie: surprises in secret!   

What are these 'ol holiday's' really all about anyway? Relationships! Keep it simple: Remember to be grateful for the little things with no price tag: Love, Life, Family, Forgiveness, Sobriety, a comfy bed, a full belly and mostly, peace in my soul.....Selah, and ALWAYS: take your Higher Power with ya!

GOT Peace????

Got PEACE? It is a gift when the world is at chaos, when we need direction, when we are making good choices...

I find it calming to know there is a power greater than myself and my little world that can keep the stars, the sun and the moon in place without my help! The same power that causes the sun to rise and set everyday without delay. I can safely turn over to God the things I am powerless over and cannot control. Things I am unable to fix or repair today I'll place in His hands and I'll be grateful for the things I can do to make a difference. Honestly, I wish I had more answers than I do but, it is what it is...I am not in charge! It is He that can see the grand picture of things while my view right now is a bit limited! Tonight, I will trust, rest and sleep on the wonder of these things. That's all I know....Selah! As a believer I can just: Cry out to Jesus!

Turning it OVER, Letting GO and letting GOD....

Stress is as toxic as swallowing poison.  The stress and unrelenting worry placed on our adrenals and being in a constant state of "fight or flight" raises our cortisol which leads to hormone disruption, high blood pressure, elevated blood sugar and heart disease.  So, it is suggested, we TURN it OVER to God those things we are powerless over to change.  I can't, but HE can so, I think I'll let him and take a new ride down a road I've never been.  Peace and quiet and serenity until I try to take back control over things that are really, none of my business!

Learn to keep at bay your triggers!  Sometimes we need HELP to get back on track and pursue the road to HEALTH RECOVERY!

See a "PINK ELEPHANT" anyone?

I know it SEEMS like it's safer to stick our head in the sand and pretend that THING is NOT happening that is causing total destruction of our spirit, MIND or BODY but denial is truly a slow death.  We think of things that ARE as tho they are not and really it just prolongs OUR agony in dealing with a harmful, disruptive event day in day out.  Somebody has got to address this thing and take it on or things are never going to change.  We know just waiting and smiling politely and HOPING for change doesn't work now does it?

What can "I" do about it you say?
Speak the truth in love and protect yourself/family from the insanity. Set some boundaries.
Our dwelling is to be a peaceful, quiet resting place!  That's a start!

We've got to take ACTION to keep living in our HOME! Our body!

No matter how hard we try to deny it, the fruit is plain to everyone but us sometimes.  The longer we abuse what God has given the sooner our home will be inhabitable. 
Sooner or later we will have to move out if we are not being a good steward of our house!  So also, should we abuse our body for years and years it will not last.  With God there is always HOPE!  With help we can get things back in order and getting back on track will breathe new life in what seemed like a hopeless scenario.  In 12 Steps we find help, hope and healing with the comfort of others who are just like us!  With some support we can get this thing trimmed back and some windows replaced and new construction repairs and it will again be filled with warmth and laughter welcoming those who need some restoration too!! Nobody would have thought it possible but MIRACLES happen in 12-Step recovery.  Keep coming back!

Do you WANT to be WELL?

How do I know if I am full of TOXINs or NOT? What are the signs?

Am I killing MYSELF in other ways? Am I grateful to be alive?

Don't worry!  There are smart things we can do
to feel good energy, strength and restore HEALTH and WELLNESS!

We Can choose LIFE, Health and healing with our food choices!
