Love and Spirituality
With Valentine’s Day coming up I wanted to talk briefly about love and spirituality. This Saturday, February 14th can be really difficult for some people, especially those who are suffering from the loss of a loved one.
My challenge to you on Saturday is this; fall in love with yourself. If you have a significant other or people you can spend the day with, then great. But, you can still do this; love yourself.
You see this journey that you are embarking on, this journey towards wholeness and sobriety is a little easier to handle when you are spiritually connected. Your spirituality must be something you believe in. Whether it’s God, or something or someone else, you still need to love yourself.
I’m sure that most of you have heard of finding a higher power or God, especially those who are involved in 12-step programs. For many people, being able to connect to some form of spiritual existence can really protect or help reduce relapse or indulgence. For others, this may come across as the hardest part.
If you are struggling where you fit into all of this it’s okay. I’m here to tell you that it is normal and most people, including those who are not struggling with addiction, question their spirituality many times throughout their lives. The best place to start with this is to start falling in love with you.
This Valentine’s day, pamper yourself. Spend the day doing what makes you feel good. You deserve it!
