The task

Quilted with fear no more
This boy will rise up to the task at hand
Although it seems daunting
(Which makes him want to hide)
He will rise up to the task at hand

Engulfed with fear no more
This man will rise up to the task at hand
For he knows of its perils
(Which makes him want to run)
He will rise up to this task

Overcoming the fear hitherto
I will rise up to LIFE
Since LIFE is the task at hand
(Which makes me want to FIGHT)
I will rise up and LIVE LIFE


"Look at every path closely and deliberately, then ask ourselves this crucial question: Does this path have a heart? If it does, then the path is good. If it doesn't, it is of no use."

There it is in a nutshell. Recovery gives us back real life as it is meant to me: fulfilling and joyful.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
(Woody Guthrie)

words to live by!
i feel like this most of the time, these type of thoughts get me up and keep me going through just about any obstacles and setbacks.
it is good to hear them from another survivor.
