Today, we have no assignment for Writing 101 but over the last week the assignments have been about finding inspiration. Today, I find my inspiration in my recovery. The reason for my inspiration today is because I volunteer at the Warm Line tonight. For those of you who are unsure of what a Warm Line is, its a conversational line run by people who are in recovery with a mental illness to help others who struggle with one. Many of the callers “call to help prevent a crisis.” To me, being able to help someone prevent a crisis from happening, reminds me why I choose to be in recovery.
As many of you may already know I am in recovery from my mental illness. My recovery is why I blog. As look at my own recovery and how for I have come, I get inspired by other peoples recovery. I also get inspired how recovery look differently to each person. Recovery may be a difficult process but it sure is awe-inspiring to see other peoples growth.
I am going to have to end this post for now for the sake my own recovery. I have to not only eat to make sure I have regulated blood sugars to maintain my emotions but need something on my tummy to take one of my meds. To me eating regularly and taking my meds is a part of my recovery just like volunteering at the Warm Line this evening. I am in fact making sure I eat before volunteering at the Warm Line not only helps me but helps the callers as well. Have a wonderful afternoon. Peace Out!!
