Gratitude “I will feel lonely and lost and confused and closed and all those things that happen when I don’t have gratitude!” Don Russell – March 9, 2009.

Recovery is an action program. We have got to practice it to keep it and we need people in our lives to make that happen. When our self-will kicks in, we try to deny it so some self-confidence and some self-worth will come in. Then the gratitude will come. We need to learn how to serve others and how to follow those who know more than we do in recovery. Even though we may not have a job or a relationship, we can still have some gratitude for the opportunity of being here in recovery instead of being out there still living in our self-made hell. We have the choice to practice gratitude. We can have the spiritual life that God wants for us by practicing the principles of recovery and of Brentwood.

My commitment today is to stay connected with fellowship and have gratitude for the people that God puts in my life.

Appreciation “It’s impossible to really appreciate a person, a human being, unless we love that person and can give that person the feeling of importance. We can also give that person the freedom to be himself or herself, to enjoy life, to make mistakes, to be themselves and know that they are loved and to know that they love us.” Fr. Paul – November 12, 2008.

There is no way that the alcoholic can appreciate anyone. We are all about self, self-centered, selfish, self-recognition, and everything about self closes our mind and closes our heart! We do not know how to show people that they are important or understood when our heart is closed. If we begin to have compassion and feel the pain of a person then we know that our heart is opening. We ask and then follow direction. Then we appreciate because we know we are allowing it to happen. That’s appreciation.

My commitment today is to appreciate all the people and things in my life.

Opportunities “We could not see that as an opportunity to change!” Don Russell – Feb. 8, 2010.

In recovery we see that there are many people that have tried to help us along the path of life. In our disease we thought that we knew better than them. We thought that they were trying to control us. We thought that we knew what we had to do and we did not need anyone’s help. We could not see that when we were off track that people tried to help us. Our behavior was not healthy and we never saw that there were opportunities to change. When we come into recovery we start to see that there are so many opportunities given to us daily. We are given the opportunity to correct our lives and then pass it on to others. The people that God puts in our lives day by day are opportunities. We can get recovery by helping someone else get recovery. This is an opportunity, not just to have sobriety, but to have some peace as well.

My commitment today is to take the opportunity to change!

Featured Testimonial

Not only did the people at Brentwood change my son, but they changed me as a mother. It allowed me to develop an amazing relationship with my son. When we found Brentwood, I was as much in need of help as my son was. I could not have done this journey without help. Without Brentwood’s help!

By coming to Family Support meetings with an open heart, I found a support system like no others. Brentwood staff have continued to work with my son in his Recovery while I worked my own program. This has allowed us to celebrate and grow in recovery as a family. I will be forever grateful to Brentwood!
