So many of my posts include this theme of recovery being a journey, a tunnel or something requiring lots of steps. It brings a smile to my face as I think — where the heck am I going anyway? Once I get to destination: recovery what am I going to do when I get there? I know it won’t be easy, and it’s not like I cross the finish line and the marathon is over. But I do know, I will have a lot more time to do things that actually serve me, than consume my life with things that deplete my energy and thoughts.
Anywho, Mary Oliver is one of my favorite poets and I came across this poem that was so appropriate. Hope you enjoy as well:
