After listening to a song from her nieces and nephews, Amy reflects and expresses her gratitude to the women who came before her.  Finding gratitude in Recovery is not always an easy feat.  Sometimes we use it as a way to bypass our emotions or it is used as a weapon against us.  Reclaiming gratitue in a way that works for you is essential to recovery.  Listen to how Amy did that for herself.

Expectations control our entire life. The way we behave and feel about ourselves is mostly driven by the hidden expectations that run our lives.  In the continuation of the Letting Go series, Amy tells about her experiences with understanding expectations and shares three important principles she has learned about letting go of the expectations that were running her life before recovery.

In this episode, Amy shares some personal news and discusses how our experiences can help to broaden our view and drive us to connect with others.  Sometimes, we instead, choose to pull away and isolate from others when things happen.  However, allowing our experiences to broaden our view instead of narrow it, is part of living a full life in recovery.
