Thursday is the day! Today I announce that Think Right into Limitless Sobriety, my first e-book, will be available Thursday via a link in your email. Thank you in advance for clicking and receiving my gift to you.
Think Right into Limitless Sobriety is a short journal that explores three of the step principles for living a rich and robust life: 1. Honesty; 2. Hope / Knowing, and 3. Surrender.
These principles are part of recipe that serves up a structure for creating positive post-sobriety life experiences. Things such as healthy relationships, clarity, and feeling at home in your own skin for starters.
For me, it’s personal. I’ve been actively re-working The Steps to allow a compassionate flashback look at “what was it like, what happened, and what it’s like now.”
The next question logically has to be what is next? What would I love to create as the next chapter(s) of my life – the sober authentic awake, alive, healthy chapters? Think Right into Limitless Sobriety is a start. More questions and more answers may be addressed in the sequel.
It’s about personal growth. It’s about acknowledging, realizing, and nurturing the powerful connection to something greater than ourselves. Being in recovery has rocked and rocketed my world into a 4th dimension, a deepening understanding of the powers in and around me.
The 12 Steps as outlined in the Big Book are nothing more – and nothing less – than a framework for a way of life that deepens, transcends, and transforms day to day experiences. Whether in recovery or not, they can be woven into practice by anyone, anytime. Just that people in recovery need help to learn (or re-learn) how to navigate in healthy ways – mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
I know that sharing my experiences with you, and you sharing yours with me has changed me for the better.
I will ask you the same question I ask of myself:
In gratitude, harmony and support,
