The Journey Continues

Today was the last day of outpatient treatment. It was an uplifting experience. I am grateful for the support of the group and the positive energy that came from it. The challenge continues as I must apply what I've learned to my everyday living. I cannot fall into old habits; I cannot rationalize that I can return to that lifestyle and be happy. I cannot fail myself. The power to change lies and comes from within. The journey continues. Today, I will not drink. When tomorrow comes, I will deal with that.

Now the work continues with building my support mechanisms and realizing that I am NOT alone. There are people who love me and care for me. There are people I love and care about. Positive thoughts and positive change.

"Just as the landfill requires dedicated work and attention, laboriously applying layer after layer of fill to reclaim the low-lying ground, our lives also require the same vigilance, continually applying layer after layer of the healing gift of repentance.…Our Father in Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ, feel sorrow when we choose to remain in sin, when the gift of repentance made possible through the Atonement can clean, reclaim, and sanctify our lives. When we gratefully accept and use this precious gift, we can enjoy the beauty and usefulness of our lives... "
