Lesson or Blessing?

Everything went bad one night and then my entire family knew I was using again, I did not have them fooled after all. I woke up the next morning, staring at the ceiling, maybe it was a dream! When I walked into the kitchen I then saw my family, waiting for me. My head lowered down in shame and fear. Not before long I was in the car with my mom and she is driving me to yet another rehab.

What are we guaranteed in this life time? Is there one definite answer to that question? I have seen in past experience that in every individual’s journey, the answers varied. With that being said, life is rather short. We must try to make the most out of each day and find the positive the best way we can. In the blink of an eye, it could all be over; I am going to count my blessings today!

I have come to find out the night I was caught using drugs again was the best lesson and blessing in my life. There were times in treatment I was so angry I was caught but later on realized it saved my life. It also gave me the option to get my life together and find the gift of recovery. At first I had to just be grateful for the situation as a blessing and later I was able to see more of the lessons to the situations. Although sometimes people do not think it, when you least expect it, something great will come out of everything with patience, perseverance, and determination.
