  1. Higher Power

    January 27, 2016 by Kayce L.

    There is no point in living a frantic existence. Charging through life like the house is on fire exhausts us and gets us nowhere. In the long run, no amount of manipulation on our part will change a situation. When we let go and allow ourselves access to a Higher Power, we will discover the best way to proceed. We need to let go and let our Higher Power guide our lives.


  2. Being Honest in Recovery

    January 25, 2016 by Kayce L.

    Being honest gives us inner peace. When we are in our active addition we find it impossible to lead honest lives. We always make up stories and excuses always scrambling to cover up our addictive behavior. As we are able, one day at a time we strive for rigorous honesty, we will find much of our feelings of fear and anxiety will disappear as we work a program of recovery


  3. Self-Esteem

    During our addiction/alcoholism we lose our self-esteem along the way. Deep inside we begin to feel worthless and alone. As we begin our journey into recovery we recognize the characteristics of low self-esteem. The 12 steps teaches us tools for reclaiming ourselves and building self worth. It begins with acceptance of our disease. The fellowship of 12 step meetings shows us people care about us, and teaches us to care about ourselves. Working the steps we can become individuals again and our self-esteem slowly restores.

     Just when you think change isn't possible miracles are happening daily. Never judge someone on their past, but what they are doing today to improve their lives and helping others.  I'd love to see before and after pics.  


  5. My Sobriety 

    January 9, 2016 by Kayce L.

    Today, I am 6 years sober. 2191 days. And my gratitude is stronger than ever. I find myself thinking, 

    "I got this without meetings, without meditation, our even without my sponsor." Then my attitudes and behaviors show up and I realize this is my medicine. I need my program, my sponsor,  and my meetings. To maintain my life. So grateful and proud. 

    One day at a time, is all we have. And I pray, for another sober 24 today. Have an awesome day. 


  6. Life on Life’s terms 

    January 3, 2016 by Kayce L.

    Dealing with life sober is a very hard thing to do at first. A year ago my 21 year old nephew died of an overdose. It was painful to see all the young people who loved him morn over his casket. I just wanna shake them all and tell them how this disease is the devil. I dealt with my disbelief and pain through the program. It's such a hard thing for our young family and friends to see the forever damage of drugs and alcohol. Today I'm grateful I live in a more peaceful, controlled life and it's all due to the 12 steps and great sponsor also the knowledge of this disease I have. Keep it simple. One day at a time.

    Our Father, which art in heaven,Hallowed be thy Name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, For ever and ever.

    Amen
    This prayer gets me through the hardest of times. And delivers my soul back to serenity.
