Follow Through

When we lead a life that lacks accountability, too often we don't follow through on our promises, goals, responsibilities, etc. It's easy to start a to-do list, but not as easy to finish one. Let's talk about the importance of following through during recovery.

Hello All,

I feel like it has been a while…maybe it has. I wanted to touch base and speak about “Following through” as it relates to our paths of change and sobriety. What I’ve learned is that “Follow through” is very important! Think about it, how many times did we miss appointments, deadlines, commitments, birthdays, holidays, special occasions, work, interviews, etc? The list can go on and on.

We always had/have an excuse. This may have seemed justified or rationalized, however, the simple fact is that we lacked following through. Most of it had to do with our disease and being sick.

Now that we are getting healthy and walking a different path, following through has to be important enough for us to live day in and day out.

We will accomplish little if we do not follow through. Sometimes, we may put too many things on our plate and simply become overwhelmed. Do you ever feel like this? If this is the case maybe the solution is to take a couple of things off our plate and slow down. Maybe, it’s time to reach out and ask for some suggestions/assistance.

Wherever you are on your path, even if you have temporarily stumbled off the path, you can always reach out for help. Simply by doing so, you are following through! God bless you all!
