My experience in recovery is if life doesn’t do a 360 once in a while, then I am not fully alive. Like everyone, my recovery has been challenged by the pandemic and I have had to double down on self-care, staying in community and making sure to seek out opportunities to be with others and serve.
My favorite part of recovery is the people. I stretch and I grow when I allow people into my world. Even when my disease is thriving on isolation – making that phone call or showing up to a meeting changes my perspective and I know I can go on. In the past couple of years, I have continued to work with women who are seeking recovery and professionally, I have the honor of working with people who are open and brave about who they are and how they have recovered. It inspires me daily.
