Lesson One

A.)
I am actively committing to change by beginning the work in Recovery Nation and doing the workshops on a consistent basis.
I will not allow shame/guilt to sabotage my commitment to recovery and to my health.
I am willing to allow myself the time to change.

B.)
I want to be happy, joyous and free.
I want to be a fun person to be around.
I want to see the best in everyone.
I want to have a positive outlook on life.
I want to believe compliments.
I want to attract happiness into my life.
I want to have a loving relationship with my wife, Cindy.
I want to have a happy and joyous relationship with myself.
I want to enjoy my work.
I want to be free of my addictions.
I want to heal my physical body through healing my emotional and mental health.
I choose to be loving in all my relations.

C.)
Looking at the pictures, allowed me to see my innocence . It allow me to connect to myself over time. I looked at pictures from ages, 0-4. It allowed myself to see myself as unadulterated, whole and complete, addiction free. Hard to believe, but true. Before the trauma, before the pain and before the abuse.

Hello Cat
and welcome to RN
Quote:
doing the workshops on a consistent basis.

remember that the workshop lessons are a road map , a guide to recovery, yes a brilliant guide but still only a guide, the real work comes from within

So if you really do want to improve your life and to recover from your addiction then you are at a good place to make that wish reality
Commit , fully and completely, there is no half way house,
work through the lessons and understand them , if you miss something ask on the help forum , assistance is always on hand
coaches and mentors are likely to drop by occasionally but if not, don't worry as this is generally a good indicator that you are on the right path

the path is long and difficult but it is well proven and you are not alone
we usually suggest completing about 3 lessons a week but spending time every day posting and reading
get to know your addiction and see yourself with honesty and openness

remember to work at your own pace and its not a race indeed some consider recovery to be a journey rather than a destination

your reasons for change are generally solid as they are positive and about you
remember the only person that can make these changes is you, so the hard work needs to come from you
looking forwards to reading your posts and wishing you all the best

Lesson 2
Life Vision

First and foremost, I choose to live a healthy life. I want to surround myself with my wife, children, and grandchildren. I am willing to live my life like I have never done it before from a place of honesty and intimacy. I choose to live in the present moment. I want to build intimacy with my wife which I have never known. I also want work that is challenging in a peaceful environment with work-life balance.

Hello Cat
Establishing a healthy vision for one's life is the single most important tool a person can develop in their recovery. That single vision--when backed by clarity--is capable of serving as both the beacon for change and, a means of contrasting what is healthy and what is a threat.

An ideal vision needs to be both general and specific, idealistic and practical.
Can I suggest that you review your vision and expand it
consider
health, ambition, honesty, friends, security, hobbies, intimacy, fun,spirituality, ..............................
perhaps a read of coach Mel's how to would help?
