Finding the The Goldilocks Zone in Addiction Recovery

The Goldilocks Zone

Why is there abundant life and intelligence on planet earth and not on any other planet in the solar system? Location, location, location. Let me explain:

The earth is perfectly located, and as such, is conducive to life. If the earth were closer to the sun, our oceans would boil away. If the earth were farther from the sun, our oceans would be frozen. We are in the Goldilocks Zone, an area where it’s not too hot, not too cold; it’s just right. In such an environment, life thrives. Now, the next logical question: Why the heck are we talking about this?

Because we need to find our Goldilocks Zone of recovery.

If we truly wish to experience a robust recovery, it’s best to do it where conditions are most favorable. We do best when we focus on our recoveries. We do best when we read recovery and spiritual material. We do best when we attend meetings. We do best when we engage in fellowship with others. We do best when we work the steps. We do best when we are of service to others. We do best when we don’t waste our time worrying. We do best when we forgive and forget. We do best when we love. We do best when we pray and meditate. We do best when we remain grateful. Most importantly, we do best when we stay balanced. Remember, we never want to run too hot or too cold. We do best when we stay just right. Find your Goldilocks Zone.

Thank you
