New Series Announcement! I'm super excited to start a new series this month - Worth Reading. The 4th week of every month this year we will discuss or explore a book that had significant impact in my own recovery journey. We will start today with Alcoholics Anonymous - Big Book.
In this episode I discuss my love for reading and why reading has always meant so much to me. Then we explore the history of the Big Book and how it paved the way for so many of the recovery resources available today. Last, I go chapter by chapter and share with you some of my favorite quotes and how they impacted my recovery.
What books have impacted your recovery?
One of the questions people consistently ask me is about the ONE THING that made the difference in my recovery. That is an impossible question to answer, of course. And I give my best attempt in this episode. Let me share with you part of my journey to self-awareness.
Continuing my work to get more and more women's recovery stories out there - que Lisa. She is amazing. I was truly inspired by her compassion and empathy towards those she encountered on her road to recovery. I am honored to bring her story to you. Remember, when we share our story or hear the stories of others, a new piece in our own life heals. That was definitely the case with Lisa. I'm forever grateful for her willingness to share so much with us!
2020 was not my best year. While I learned a lot and had some great opportunities and wins, there were many things that didn't happen. I'm calling it the year of false starts. It took a toll on me and on Worth Recovery. However, I'm doing the work to change that. In this episode I discuss how shame and guilt have kept me frozen and not moving forward and how learning to love myself through the process has been the most rewarding.
