Heading in New Directions

“LIfe is difficult.” This is the first three words of Scott Peck’s book, “The Road Less Traveled.” He’s right, it is difficult, but the good news is that we don’t have to do it alone. Every time we make a good decision life becomes easier. Many times those decisions are hard to make because it requires us to make changes in ourselves, our behaviors, our attitude and our relationship with others.

Recovery is this way. Lots of people just quit drinking, but never make the changes in their behavior and their life that will give them the quality of life they have always longed for. The wonderful news is that there is so much help out there that you really never have to feel alone or that you don’t have someone to share with.

I have helped so many thousands of people I can’t even keep up with the number. I am so thankful that I have been in a place to reach out to them and help them walk the pathway of recovery. 12-Step meetings abound with wonderful people reaching out to provide support and encouragement. Churches abound and are filled with blessed, devout folks who would love to help you develop your spiritual life.

Wow, that’s a lot of help. If you’re still sittin’ on the fence, take a leap of faith and reach out. You will find that the day you do that will be the most wonderful day of your life.
