My Life Is The Book I Choose To Write

09 January 2017 Written by 

Heard an A.A. speaker yesterday who shared that when he first attended an A.A. meeting he said to the guys, “You’re going to teach me how to stop drinking, right?” The answer he received was, “No, you’re going to stop drinking and we’ll teach you how to live.” I really loved that!

A lot of life is really about learning how to live. It reminds me of the saying, “Live and let live” which tells me to let others live their own lives, but reminds me to live my own life!

I get to choose how I want to live my life. My life is a living book that others can read. Who I am, what I say, the energy I bring to the space around me – these are all part of my living book. I get to write my book, and each day is a fresh new page.

If I don’t like the book my life is writing, I get to choose the next chapter to write.

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
