Day 48: Journal Volume l -Free Yourself
📕Take a *Free Daily Walk* & Journal thru my book-series w/Me-Now
Today’s recovery meditation is about breaking free of self-made prisons that hold us back from living mentally-free, in the here and now. Breaking out can be scary –what will life be like without this weight? Sometimes we think it will be worse so we don’t want to change. Some will never know. Some will. Which one are you today?
In recovery, we get knocked out of our comfort zone. How? We hear others talk about situations that mirror “similars” in our own lives. We see them doing something about it. This causes us to question –how am I living? We then ask our-self, do I really want what I got -followed by what do I have to do to change this situation? Then we a small step and do something, like talk to a trusted friend, a sponsor, an advisor, a mentor, a sibling, -someone sensible.
As I face this day now, I am reminded to notice areas of my life that are on lockdown. To notice my behaviors that result in me being a recluse. As I get older I know it is important to not brush little fears from life, or little hurts from family and society under a carpet -to pile up. This behavior creates a crappy old person that I don’t want to become. So, I will get out of my comfort zone, -out of a self-made prison and take a baby step to cope starting with my Higher Power, my journal, & with a trusted person. You can do this too, if you choose too. So -choose too.
