Trust me when I say, letting go was one of the hardest things I had to do. Sometimes we can feel so out of control that we cling to the only things in our reach that we CAN manipulate and have power over. For me, it was alcohol. For some it’s food, sugar, partying, drugs, spending, gambling, sex, the list goes on. A vice is just that. A vice, something that has a tight hold on you, and makes you feel in control. If your mind went to that steel tool your Dad had bolted to his work bench, mine too, haha, and you know that thing held on tight !
Full transparency, the last 18 months have been some of the hardest and greatest I have experienced. I have found the biggest shifts in my life since I found sobriety. My sobriety provides me the responsibility of maintaining a daily commitment, of taking inventory of what’s going on in my life and how I show up for the world. It was a vice I needed to lose. I could no longer let it hold me. My sobriety is part of 𝘮𝘺 alignment, it’s the catalyst. And while I’m not here to promote total sobriety for everyone, I am here for you if you are struggling with addiction.
One question I encourage you to ask yourself is this. Are you clinging to the control of something in fear of truly letting go. In fear or what will happen if you let the Universe/God/Higher Power, take over, and truly guide you. Vices are not usually things that we start doing or consuming knowing it will control us, but then again, the path to hell was paved with good intentions.
I know what it feels like to know there is more out there in this Universe calling out, but have no idea how to figure out how to answer or what to do about those innate feelings. I have also felt like I had failed at goals I had set for myself so many times, another attempt was pointless. I know what it feels like to be at rock bottom, TRUST ME, it’s cold and uncomfortable and scary, but I also know what it feels like to climb up and know without a shadow of a doubt, that I will never go there again.
