A WOMAN’S SPIRIT #essentialsofrecovery


It is time to enter into knots of fear and watch them uncurl into waves of love.

~ G. Carol ~

The fear that hinders most of us is due to our obsession to control the behavior of others. This fear, coupled with our compulsion to manage outcomes that are clearly beyond our control, keeps us stuck in situations that we need to grow beyond.

We’re extremely fortunate to be part of this fellowship because we are surrounded by friends who understand our kind of fear and are willing to help us through scary times. We will have the opportunity to repay the favor many times over. We are all learning to handle fear and, thus, are discovering together that the risks we take in the company of one another prepare us for bigger challenges on our own. The empowerment that is guaranteed us will sustain our efforts as we take each new risk.

With the help of friends, I can feel my fears and keep them in perspective. I will be able to feel more love when I let the fears go.
