My realization of the value of life was not an epiphany, striking me with profound insight and wisdom on living and dying; more of a learning experience from seeing how many lives ended quickly from addiction, yet how extended many were by recovery.
- A friend from the rooms passed away after a motorcycle accident.
- Another friend is on life-support from an overdose.
- Yet another person I’ve known got a diagnosis of cancer with no hope of remission.

Bare Bones Recovery: What Is Really Important in our Life?
“Each day brings new opportunities, allowing you to constantly live with love—be there for others—bring a little light to someone’s day. Be grateful and live each day to the fullest.” ― Roy T. Bennett,
If you want to live fully on this journey of life and recovery:
- Think about who you really are, want to be and can be
- Find your pieces, make your puzzle
- Create a life of love, caring, and supporting others
- Leave a legacy of kindness while still telling the truth
- Put effort into being better today than you were yesterday
- Always have gratitude for those who’ve helped you
Writing, and recovery heals the heart
If you are ready to share hope to others struggling with their recovery, consider a guest post. How something is said is just as important as what is said.
