A few nuggets learned along the way:

  • Struggle and some pain is necessary for growth, however, suffering is optional.

  • Anything worth doing can be broken into smaller attainable steps.

  • Gratitude is not just an attitude, it is a daily key habit for satisfaction in life.

  • Everything cannot be controlled, but there are some key things that can be controlled or influenced and others requiring acceptance which makes all the difference. 

  • Action is always more important than certainty for success at anything.

  • Amazing things happen when we show up for what we've committed to.

  • Ambivalence towards change is not only normal but a given.

  • Sometimes relapse is part of the recovery process, but it never means all that was learned before is lost.

  • There is always more to learn, and knowing the right answers is often replaced by asking the right questions.

  • Finally, healing occurs when we embrace with love and forgiveness that which we push away.

Oh, and....make it a point to make your bed every day after you wake (this simple habit can change your life).​
