WOMEN in RECOVERY – Embrace the strong, fearless side of you!

 

Embrace the strong, fearless side of you,

that personality that you may have forgotten about.

 

 

If you are doing something you love to do, if you are engaged and passionate, it is like a giant beacon.

 
 

What
 You 
Need
 To
 Learn

  • Analyze 
less
 and
 take
 action
 more 
quickly.
  • Don’t 
be 
so 
picky
 with
 other
 people 
or
 with 
yourself.
  • Reduce 
the
 number 
of
 details 
you 
need
 to 
make 
decisions.
  • Consider
 people’s 
feelings 
more 
prior 
to
 making
 a
 decision.
  • Understand
 that 
you 
and
 your 
partner 
will
 learn 
more 
from
 mistakes
 than
 from
 immediate
 success.
  • Mistakes 
are 
necessary 
to
 grow!
 Chill
 out; 
it
 will
 be
 fine. 
  • Learn 
to 
appreciate 
that 
aggressiveness 
does
 accomplish
 more 
in
 less
 time.
  • Value,
 embrace,
 and
 affirm 
those 
in
 your
 life 
who 
are
 creative,
 spontaneous, 
and enthusiastic.
  • Exercise 
the
 right
side
 of
 your
 brain 
(the
“creative
side”);
 do 
something
 without 
a
 specific
 reason.
  • Stop
 and
 talk 
to 
people
 without 
any
 particular 
task
 in
 mind.
  • Get 
a 
little
 wild
 and 
crazy
 once
 in 
awhile!
    Learn
 to
 have 
more 
fun.
  • Write a card 
to 
tell someone 
how 
much
 you appreciate
 them 
as 
a
 person
 (not 
just 
what 
they
 do).
  Explain
 the 
positive 
impact 
they’ve 
made 
on 
your
 life.
  • Find 
the
 person
 who
 gets
 under 
your
 skin
 the 
most 
because 
they
 function
 so
 differently 
than 
you 
do.
  • Making 
decisions 
more
 quickly
 and 
listening 
to 
intuition.

 
We pulled this excerpt from a blog we found, for good points are made below.

Two simple points :

1. Everyone is fighting a battle of some kind. You have no idea. None.  Even if you think you do, you probably don’t. Please don’t be the metaphorical baseball bat in someone’s life. They don’t need the help. Attempt to live your life in a way that is filled with grace & understanding. Be a safe place. Don’t steal others’ tenderness. Don’t let your own crap overflow into everyone around you’s lives and tarnish them. Learn to process, learn to deal, learn to let people you trust walk through life with you. But don’t use your own personal battle to drag everyone down with you.

2. Everyone is fighting a battle of some kind. You have no idea. None.  So don’t let the fact that they can’t control themselves or deal with it healthily change who you are. Don’t let them make you cold. Don’t let the blows over the head make you stay down. Don’t let them make your answers to things become whatever, it’s fine. Be strong enough to be tender and open, because it takes a special kind of strength to choose to live that way. Please don’t ever stop being affected by the things of this life. It’s a beautiful thing. Feel it. Let it in. LIVE, for crying out loud. Don’t pass through this life like a robot in armor, unaffected by the beauty of relationships and change and the simple things. – Blake Bollinger
