To My Client in Recovery

I hope you stay clean and sober. I may not have a crystal ball, but I do know your life will be better with sobriety. With sobriety, you have possibilities. With sobriety, you can create a life you want, maybe even the life you did not know that you wanted yet. It may surprise you. What you do not know is that I believe this and want sobriety for you probably more than you want it for yourself. It is an easy choice from my chair, and I know that you still struggle or have doubts. I know my voice is not as loud or as internalized as your addiction voice, but I will keep holding on and waiting for my opportunities. I will wait patiently and then seize the moments to point out your addiction voice and how it lies to you. I will wait patiently and seize each opportunity to infuse hope into your thought process and, at least, wedge open a space for possibility.  As I wait for these moments, I remind myself to not preach to you. I push past at least a dozen thoughts in my head knowing you will not want to hear statistics, others’ experiences or most typical recovery responses. I will wait patiently for an opportunity to challenge old beliefs. I will wait patiently to infuse hope.

Years ago, when I first began my chiropractic practice as a shy, introverted woman literally afraid of her own shadow, I was introduced to the concepts of prosperity, positive thinking and goal setting. Up until then, I thought successful people were born that way, it just happened for them. That it was an accident of nature, some were lucky and some were not. And, I wasn’t sure how I’d achieve it in my life.

Do you ever wonder if the energy of others (and even people you don't know) could affect you? Let me tell you, the simple answer is yes, it can. I had that thought today after talking with a coach of mine about the shift in my mindset between last week and this week. The shift felt almost as if a cloud of something rolled through me and hit me hard.
