FAITH MONTH: DAY 11: “You are where you need to be. Just take a deep breath.”― Lana Parrilla

I heard this so much in my early years around meetings. I did not really believe they were right, because I could not believe they knew anything about my life. What they DID know was how crazy it was to be a new member in recovery. And someone had probably told them that, and they were excited to torture another new member by telling them that. Haha!

But if we ARE sitting in a meeting, surrounded by recovering addicts, feeling lost and scared, we ARE right where we need to be. Oh yeah!

And I tell myself this all the time…ALL…THE…TIME. I shared with someone recently that it did not matter what life choices he was making. Why? Because I truly believe that every choice in front of us is a choice given to us by the universe and that ALL the choices we face are opportunities to advance the cause of the universe that day and to be on the path we are here to follow.

That no matter what we choose, it will serve Universal Power and serve our journey as well. No mistakes can be made in this perfect universe. Isn’t that nice? Simple, straight through the heart of Ego and into the heart of Creation. That is where I long to be all the time. And I am when I remember the simple truths, such as this quote. All the time. No matter what. Right where I am supposed to be. YAY!!
