What’s in My Recovery Arsenal?

As I navigate my way through this journey called recovery, I learn many things along they way.  I have begun the habit of finding the lesson in every situation that I am faced with.  When I allow myself time to be with my thoughts, I can make connections about my illness, symptoms, triggers, and past behaviors that I now must take responsibility for.  I believe that self-discovery is the byproduct of recovery.  I have found that I am learning so much about myself and in awe at times.  Many of these beliefs and thoughts were always embedded in me.  Now, I can clearly recognize and identify them.  I have devised a list of the tangible and non-tangible items that are in my recovery arsenal.
Humor
 Gratitude
Reflection
Meditation
Medication
Therapy
Prayer
Avoiding Negative Energy
Recognizing My Triggers


For all of you who are in recovery, what items are in your recovery arsenal?
