You Motivation for February 10, 2019

33

Hey everyone! Welcome to Sunday! I am both humbled and privileged to have you stop by my website today!!!

There is a saying in the 12-step groups that goes like this:

Face

Every

Problem and

Recovery

It is not an accident that the words are an anagram for F.E.A.R. In Alanon I learned that facing my past and how I reacted to it is the only way to defeat the fear I have of looking at it straight on.

Facing fear, and plowing through it has aided me enormously in getting to the place I am in my healing today.

Was it fun? No.

Was it easy? Hell no.

Was it painful at times? Oh, yes.

But I would do it again if I needed to because it was only by acknowledging the things that happened to me when I was a kid that I have become a capable adult who is ready to conquer the world.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I am not famous, rich. I do not own a house and I live in low-income housing. If someone looked at my life without knowing where I’ve been, they would think me a worthless wash-out of a human being.

But they would be dead wrong.

I have looked evil and death straight in the face and not flinched. Against all the odds, I am sitting here today in my bedroom typing on my laptop and trying to help others.

I am a success story just because I am still here.

I did not allow my fear to stop me from getting this far, and I write posts and articles to try and light a fire under you so that you will come with me along the road less taken and conquer your fears too.

Do 30 years of healing mean I am fearless? Nope. It just means that I will not flinch and that I will keep fighting to my last breath for both myself and you.

Keep marching soldiers, keep moving on! I’ll march right alongside you, that’s a promise.
