Season's Greetings Everyone!
Yesterday was the first day back to work and it's a short week. It feels like so last year and the reality is so much has happened already!
So many NEW things! I moved to a new apartment (for me anyways), in a new town, a newly single dad, some new friends and a new sweater! Exciting stuff (yes, I have actually worn the sweater already)!!
As many of us experience, the leftover Ham is done, you've cleaned up the silly string and the holiday lights are coming down. It's raining in the Wild West side of the Commonwealth as I sit down to write and I almost forgot that it's actually the beginning of the year!
There's usually some kind of resolution around this time. What is it that you do in order to make it sustainable to the point it becomes your reality?
In the recovery world, we put our values up front and act them out every opportunity possible. Not always the easiest thing, especially when the odds may be against you on any random day for no particular reason. Thing is, it's easier said than done on one's own. That's why we have each other.
And because of our belief in each other, our belief in this work, our belief in recovery and our working together, Choice Recovery Coaching, Inc. is celebrating our fifth birthday! Five Years as an independent Non Profit 501C 3 organization.
The results thus far, BSAS has just announced its awarding of the first Recovery Education Collaborative ever, which we are a part of. Amazing how recovery works!
We are committed to making the Commonwealth the greatest Wellness Recovery Oriented System of Care (WROSC) it can be.
You know that Recovery IS Real. Give your neighbor a smile, a hand up to the one in need, put your arm around your loved one and take the next step towards your desired reality.
Reach out with any of your coaching, training or recovery questions. We'll support you in discovering solutions.
Much Gratitude and Recovery to ALL !
Thank YOU for Championing Recovery !

Five Years by David Bowie:
"Pushing through the market square
So many mothers sighing (sighing)
News had just come over We had five years left to cry in (cry in) News guy wept and told us Earth was really dying (dying) Cried so much his face was wet Then I knew he was not lying (lying)"
