COURAGE MONTH: DAY 9: “Let there be room left in your heart for the unimaginable ~ serendipity has a way of showing itself just when you feel like giving up.”― Nikki Rowe

In the early days of this recovery thing, I was full of fear. I never believed I could or would ever have a life worth living or achieve any of the dreams I had.

As the years have gone by, I have done nearly everything I ever dreamed of doing, plus a great deal more. I have had amazing situations come into my life that I could not have imagined…ever! Love and peace and joy beyond anything I could ever dream.

Now I have learned to let the Universal Power surprise me with how my life is supposed to unfold. I will always allow adventures, because I have so many wonderful times to look at as evidence that not only can my craziest and wildest dreams come true, that they will become even greater and bigger and more amazing than what I dream.

The hardest part for me is always going to be in the waiting…my courage and faith are great, my patience, sadly, still a work in progress.

I am a therapist and counselor with long-term recovery from addictions and personal trauma. My writing reflects these experiences and the road I have traveled in 12-Step recovery settings, along with the work I have done for over 30 years in the field. My love of dolphins includes the stories of them being healers in places all over the world. I long to offer every broken spirit and body the experience of a healing hug. May my words and stories inform, uplift and delight your spirit and soothe your weary heart.
