Jordan Horowitz Does The Next Right Thing

27 February 2017 Written by 

In recovery, we spend months, sometimes years, learning how to do the  "next right thing". "La La Land" Producer, Jordan Horowitz, did this effortlessly, with the world watching, at last night's Oscar ceremony.

In an unprecedented mistake presenters, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, were somehow given the wrong red envelope and announced "La La Land" as the best picture. The cast of "La La Land" was on stage celebrating and speeches were being given when Jordan Horowitz made his way to the mic and broke the news:

"There’s a mistake. ‘Moonlight,’ you guys won best picture"...I’m going to be really proud to hand this to my friends from “Moonlight.” Horowitz said. 


What an honest glimpse into kindness, courage, and grace. Thank you for giving us a heroic example of what doing the next right thing looks like. Kudos to you, Jordan Horowitz!

In my family of origin, three of us are in treatment for codependency, drugs, and/or alcohol abuse. Two of us are in denial about the devastating effects codependency, drugs, and alcohol have had on our family. None of us are talking about it. I’m the codependent one on a quest for healthy living through love and boundaries. My journey started in Celebrate Recovery. I have much to learn and practice. I live with my wonderful husband, amazing son, and pseudo-therapy beagle, Spot. I enjoy long walks on the beach and writing about the life-changing principles I’m learning in the rooms of recovery.
