KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery

When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge.

~ Tuli Keupferberg 

Recovery has happened to us. We stopped drinking or using other drugs and, like magic, a new world appeared. Being sober sure shakes up a person’s life! It’s good to shake up our world every now and then. This way, we see there’s not just one “world”, but many. We grow each time we step into a new world and learn new things. Of course, the addict’s world was new and exciting to us at one time. But we got trapped and couldn’t find our way out. Our Higher Power had to free us. We need to try new worlds, but we always need to take our Higher Power with us–into worlds where there’s honesty, love, and trust.

Prayer for the Day:

Higher Power, lead me to new worlds where I’ll learn more about living fully.

Action for the Day:

I’ll list 3 ways I can step into a new world today. For example, I could read something new, go to a museum, or eat a new food.
