As we close out the year and get ready to bring in 2012, I want to encourage you to celebrate yourself this year!
Step 6 in The Path Forward is TO HEAL, which is where
"We have a newfound compassion for ourselves and commit to live in the moment."
I believe finding ourselves again, practicing self-compassion and living in the moment is the KEY to our recovery.
Many of us find it easy to have compassion for others, but have very little for ourselves. It never occurs to us to feel it for ourselves. We must lighten up, relax and go easy on ourselves for a change. Living life with an unconditional love for ourselves changes everything.
