THE DAILY SOLUTION
What's more convincing for you... Someone who says one thing and does another, or someone who walks his or her talk? It's easy to know the answer when you read it . Of COURSE it's the person who is walking their talk . But in life, it's not so obvious. If you REALLY want to Recover, walk your talk. The days of “do as I say, not as I do” - are over! With the Internet and social media, we live in a world of transparency. No falsities. And why this is GREAT for people on the spiritual path in the spiritual world is that the playing field is level and we can all embrace our humanity.

No one is perfect. No one. Not ONE person in recovery you look up to is the perfect image that you imagine them to be. In many ways, those of us who proclaim we are the "recovery gurus" are the most messed up ones because they have come to teach what they need to learn ourselves. The good news here is that we can now use our pain, our weakness, our shortcomings and our mistakes, not as more reasons for us to be WRONG, but we can now share them authentically and know that we are not alone.

In this imperfect state of our humanity, empathy and compassion emerge, as does a sense of connection. SPANNING the human experience instead of just reaching for some unreachable height of spiritual perfection that actually denies recovery itself.The growth always remains in the imperfection. Life is messy. We mess up. We have great moments. We have horrible moments. We have brilliant moments. The goal is to allow and admit them all. To be willing to look bad, silly or goofy. To not aim for perfection, but rather express ourselves as we are, strong, scared and in human form.
