Why put off til tomorrow what we can do today?
Recovery is an active process. It’s not something where we can tick the box or read the book and be grand; it’s an active, involved and committed journey.
When we choose to move away from condition and towards our Freedom, then we’ve got to roll up our sleeves and get stuck in. There’s plenty we can do at any stage of recovery (no doubt our practitioners have thrown out a suggestion or two!), yet sometimes we still find ourselves static or stuck, loaded with knowledge but ultimately just frustrated because we feel like we’re getting nowhere.
Knowledge is wonderful, understanding is essential and of course taking in information is how we learn. But we’re not here to just continually add to our collection of knowledge. We need to act. We need to turn what we know into what we do.
Walking the talk is our best form of transport towards Freedom.
Over on the Dare to Live and marinotc Instagram we’re going to kick start a hashtag of #daretodoit and make a conscious effort to get out there and just do it – the things we’re afraid of, the things we’ve been putting off, the suggestions we’ve been given. No talking ourselves out of it or putting it off til ‘tomorrow’, just daring to do it.
Though it can keep us nice and busy and safely stagnant, at some point we’ve got to stop the overanalysing, the second guessing and the doubts – and the time for that is right now.
As they say, ‘If not now, when?’
So… What could we dare to do?
When we talk about getting active and just doing it – what comes to mind?
What more can we do in our Recovery? What are we avoiding doing?
What would we like to do?
What could we see ourselves doing?
What are we afraid to do?
