Day 18 - Have you found a Higher Power? If so, what is it? Explain how it has helped you with your recovery.
A lot of times I feel as though I don’t believe in anything but myself (and sometimes I don’t even have that) although lately I’ve felt taken care of. I don’t consider myself a religious person but rather a spiritual one; my Higher Power is the universe and the balance that it holds. I have an overwhelming feeling that things work out the way they’re meant to, that everything happens for a reason, and if you trust in the universe it will take care of you. No matter what happens, I can always take solace in the fact that it’s meant to be this way, that something will come out of the experience that I will at least be able to learn from.
Most people may look at my path and think that I’ve taken a step back – I left college and moved back to my hometown where I’ve been in treatment since June – but I don’t see it like that. My life has taken a lot of unexpected twists and turns but I’ve never felt more at peace with where I am in life as I do this very second.
