A journey back to what was?
Hanging onto the last thread of familiarity?
Recovery is a journey beyond
A destination of safety and comfort?
A stone step for triumph?
Normalcy is finding peace with what is.
A venture away from the familiar?
Can I let go to grow?
Development is the trust to find new threads.
A fool's balance between what was and what's needed?
Will I recognize myself after change?
Progress is the transformation into Greatness.
Recovery is a huge topic nowadays and it's one that has been my dream for many years. When I speak to others, I hear the desire to go backwards in time. Though I've been tempted by this in my recovery, I feel the choice would forfeit a valued growth. I feel the return to normalcy has nothing to do with going back to what was. I feel it's more about embracing what is and finding our place in it.
To recover, we must accept what was, venture forth not-knowing and patiently ride the waves of development to progress into more Greatness.
