Overcome Year 1 and Imagine Year 2

10 posts in this topic

Well its been a year. I've orbited the SUN once without taking Adderall. A  long year that I will remeber with a certain bitter sweet fondness. But lets not dwell on the year that has passed and wonder what life would be like if .... Life is just too damn short.  

 

I wanted to write and epicly triumphant post today. A hollywood story of how triumphed over addiction and from the gutters of Canada I built an empire.  The reality of my recovery is that I am still wobbly and unsure. Recovery has its own timeline which can not be rushed or forced. Time heals all things. Steadfast in my commitment to move forward and have a few epic triumphs along the way. I continue on this journey of baby steps with the knowledge that nothing is impossible.   

 

My priorities,motivatons and perspective have changed dramatically over the last year. I don't quite understand what my new motivations are yet. I know I want to keep things simple, have balance, and turn a healthy profit. But I am still wobbly in this new life of mine. Its as though I am working on a 5000 piece puzzle without the photo on the box. I've put together the borders and started working on chunks, in year two I hope to connect some of those chunks and start seeing the big picture.   

 

In year two I will focus solely on my health/fitness. I believe this is the silver bullet to improving my confidence, self esteem, focus, prosperity etc. A year from now I would like to be a non-smoker, 40 pounds lighter and looking good in a tshirt (white lrg Calvin Klein vneck) . A year from now my buisnesses should be turning a tidy profit and something I am proud of. I've learned over the last year that I am the master of my destiny and my thoughts become things. Mindset is everything! 

 

I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for this year.  Too many members to list, you have all played an intergal role in my recovery, today would not be possible without you. A year off Adderall is a huge victory for me but for this community as well.   This is our victory and I look forward to many many more. 

 

Much Love, 

 

ZK

LOL ZK - I wanted to write an epicly triumphant post for my one year as well. Alas, I didn't end up writing anything. Gotta love that crippling perfectionism ; )

 

Well done, buddy. You've been a huge help to me and I know so many others on this site. And hey, if we can do it, anybody can...

 

I've got similar goals my second year. If experience has taught me anything, it's that if I can let go and trust the recovery process, and give a pretty good effort most of the time, things will continue to get better and better.

 

To a wonderful second year!

I couldn't be more happy or proud of you buddy! That is amazing and congratulations on your accomplishments and 1 year being clean! That is such a big deal and you DID it, woot woot. I was cheesin' while reading your post the entire time too, like the rest of the ladies.

Your goals in this next year sound great and I know you can and will do them all! You have come so far and I'm so grateful for this site and all you have done on it. Thank you for everything and keep up the awesome work. You are a huge inspiration!

Congratulations ZK on one year!  As I say at each one of your milestones, "Thank You for everything that you do on the forum"  because I wouldn't be here if it weren't for you.  I like your "wobbly" description because it is like we are yearling deer fawns who have just lost their spots but still don't have 100% leg strength.  We'll get there buddy.
