The Best You Can Imagine
Imagine for a moment that your every desire has been fulfilled, and that even the dreams you dare not to dream have become a reality. Imagine a life with no worries, no fears, no limitations, with nothing to fight against, nothing standing in your way, nothing to hold you back.
How would you live each moment of each day in such a bright and shining reality? If you truly had it all, what, precisely, would you do with it and who would you become?
As you imagine yourself living out your most treasured dreams, you begin to touch the tangible and authentic purpose behind those dreams. And you come to understand that the person you would become if you truly had it all, is already with you even now.
That purpose which longs to be fulfilled is very much a part of who you are today, no matter how distant your dreams may seem. Those dreams are very much alive in you, and a great portion of their value you already have.
Life is found not in waiting or hoping for anything to come to you. Life is best lived knowing that who you are and what you have is always more than enough.
The best you can imagine is already here, ready to be lived out. Allow it to unfold, moment after moment, day after day, as you experience the magnificent blessing that is your life.

Recovery is ...
Recovery is accepting your addiction as only part of your problems,of realizing the need to rid yourself completely of other people who are a threat to your well being no matter how much you may think you need them,working honestly to become whole again,knowing you cannot do it alone, and most of all recovery is hard to be at times, but well worth the effort.Nothing feels better than getting better.

When you get rid of the bad influences around you (which I think is easy), what happens when the good influences CONSTANTLY remind you of the bad times? I think they are human and this is natural for them, but doesn't it make moving on so much harder?
