A New Meaning

“Before I did the steps thoroughly I was in a world cut off from character-building and spiritual growth… After doing the daily deal… my life has taken on a new meaning… the aim of my life is spiritual growth. I love my life!” – Recovery Text from Mike in AA

That about sums it up right there. What was the purpose of my life before I started really immersing myself in recovery and working a solid program on a daily basis? It was about getting those things that I thought would make me happy. I drank booze, smoked, snorted, and ate drugs before I got sober. After that stopped working I threw myself into work to make money, got married and had a baby. While I experienced lots of joy, the long lasting inner peace and happiness I sought was still illusive. I finally found it at 20 years sober by having, and working, a clear system of recovery and spiritual growth. When I do the daily deal ILML!
