July 4, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Today’s Gift from Hazelden

Saturday, July 4, 2015

Today’s thought from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

Celebrate your freedom

Today in the United States; we celebrate our nation’s independence. Why not take a moment to celebrate your independence as well? Whether you’ve found freedom from an addiction or from codependency, or you’ve discovered the freedom to live your life as fully as possible, take a moment to honor and acknowledge how much that freedom means to you.

It’s good to identify our problems. Through the awareness of what’s wrong and what’s broken, we learn what to repair and fix. It’s good to focus on the health and the goodness in our lives, too. Becoming aware of what’s right and what’s working is how we discover joy.

Look back along the winding road of the path of your life. See how far you’ve come? It looks good to me. How does it look to you?

Hurray! We’re finally free!

God, thank You for setting me free.
