Lean In

There is one thing I have learned in my 16 months of sobriety that stands out more than anything else… LEAN IN. My sponsor talks about this frequently and I so incredibly grateful for that. When things get tough, lean in.. My understanding of this? Let others support me. Lean into their guidance, lean into their love and lean into their heart.

This week, there was much heartbreak in the world around me. Unable to grasp onto any feeling of normalcy, I decided to lean in. I spent time with friends and family… I was able to voice my fears and shed tears. WE walked through it all together, and will continue to do so. When you have friends who accept you for the hot mess that you are… you know there is a level of love and trust that will never be broken.

I have a pendant of the tree of life that has a beautiful inscription on the back: Life is but a journey to find our way back home, but we are not created to journey all alone. Those words I will carry with me today and always… knowing that together, WE will get through the good, the bad and the ugly. I am thankful for these moments of clarity, knowing that love has a depth deeper than any valley of pain.
