Good afternoon! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. I saw this picture and quote and really liked it, but the catch is...it can't grow in the darkness for very long. Most plants, or some part of them, aren't completely underground. Some part of them need to be above ground to get sunlight to transfer that energy to produce fruit or whatever that plant does. I thought that was really interesting. Same with my life. I couldn't hide in the bar or my bedroom forever. I wasn't not only getting physical sunlight, but spiritual sunlight. I was going to wither away. It's interesting comparing yourself to a plant, because this can go for anyone, not only those in recovery. If you are losing your spiritual connection, you can tell, you can feel it. A plant needs light, it needs food, and water. We need interaction, love, and motivation. I get mine from going to church and AA meetings. Do whatever you need for your food and water. That's all I have for today! Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
