Go home

The first step in recovery is to go home. We all have a home, whether in our friendships or in our family. 

Our homes are like health insurance for the spirit. Your friends and family are there to protect you in your darkest times and insure your spirit is safe, sound and healthy. We all need connection in order to heal because love is the ultimate healer.

Plan something to look forward to

Having something on the horizon to plan for, get excited about and anticipate, propels us forward. It is vital to the healing process.

Settle for the perfect fit

Life is holding you accountable for all of your decisions because you know better now.
