For better or for worse, I have always been someone who takes action in the program of recovery. I've made A LOT of mistakes, fallen on my face many times, and sometimes even made people angry. I've messed up, screwed up, looked bad, made enemies, broken hearts and disappointed people - never because I meant to, mostly because I didn't understand the effect of my actions on other people.

There have also been MANY positives to taking action, namely that I am living INSIDE of my recovery and I am also happy and fulfilled. I view ALL the mistakes I've made as lessons helping me hone my program, become more empathetic and bringing me one step closer to actualizing my recovery.

The consistency my whole life is that I have always been a person of ACTION. My action hasn't always been accurate, precise or correct. I've made a TON of mistakes. I've messed up.
Mistakes are the portal to discovery. I don't know why I've always known this, but I've always had the belief that it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission. (this OBVIOUSLY doesn't apply to illegal activities). But it DOES apply to the rest of life. Risk taking.

Following my recovery. But not just thinking about it. DOING IT.

I ended up with egg on my face plenty. I even messed up so bad once that I stayed in Morroco and the Canaries for almost two years to recover.

That was a ballsy choice. But I really believe that those ballsy choices are the choices that my higher power respects. And it is the ACTION that is the bridge between dreaming about something and actually LIVING my recovery.

And not perfect action - action with the understanding that it won't be perfect. Sure, you will be judged and criticized by people - but most often people who are not taking action. It's EASY to be a critic, very difficult to be a DOER. And you will hardly ever be criticized by those who are doing. They may compete with you, but that is the stuff that makes you better.

Taking action with the understanding that you are going to mess up... taking action with the knowledge that you aren't going to get it right, taking action knowing that you MUST and course correct as you go - THAT is what true recovery is made of.

Fraser Trevor calls it RECOVERY ACTION. That is to say, DOING A LOT OF STEP AND MEDITATION WORK EVERY DAY FOR A LONG TIME IN THE DIRECTION OF YOUR RECOVERY. Not once, not twice, not a hundred times, but UNTIL it happens. Action IS the bridge between contemplating about it, and living it.

And don't sweat the mistakes or the criticism, it will pass and what will change is you will get smarter, better and wiser every day with the higher powers help. The critic never built anything that stood the test of time. Only those wise enough to appear the fool temporarily are the ones to eventually become the masters.
