The Best Is Yet to Come
I repeat this mantra over and over again. Each time an answer or a piece of information comes to me, I immediately give thanks, further reinforcing my intention and expectation to receive guidance.
Gratitude also plays a huge role in my new life as I immediately thank God and the universe for sending me important signs. This interaction has become a daily, joyful routine. Life in recovery is whatever we make it. A friend of mine says it best: “I thought I’d lived a full life, but with recovery, life has just begun. “I truly believe that new and wonderful experiences are available for all of us who have chosen to walk the path of recovery. In recovery I have learned to live life without feeling I need something outside of myself to feel whole.
I have learned how to process uncomfortable feelings in healthy ways. I have learned how to be a good friend to myself and others, and I have learned how to manage stressful situations and workloads with grace and confidence.
Even when something occurs that could take me out of balance, I give thanks for the opportunity to practice staying in balance in challenging circumstances. Now I feel more connected to my surroundings and to the people in my life. I enjoy knowing that no matter what happens, it will be okay, and I trust that the signs and information I need will come to me when I need it because…the best is yet to come.
