Michele’s Healing Thought of the Week: It’s Time To Feel Something Thrilling

The fun thing about recovery are the surprises. Those days, moment, activities, etc. that you didn’t expect to make a difference or make you feel good that do, in fact, make a difference.

In her memoir, LEARNING TO BREATHE: My Yearlong Quest To Bring Calm To My Life, Priscilla Warner writes,

I grew more calm when I was immersed in the drawing. Between that and my regular meditation practice, I was feeling productive and balanced. It amazed me that I could calm myself down so deeply with nothing but a pencil and paper. The power of deep creative engagement was thrilling.

What do you do that makes you so focused and engaged that you forget about everything else? Haven’t found that yet? Start experimenting!

You have enormous healing potential, the goal is learning to access it. Dig deep. You can do this. I believe in you!
