Spring Renewal: A Time to Recover from Addiction

This entry was posted in Recovery and tagged , , , , on by .

It is finally that time again—for the snow to melt, the daffodils to bloom, and leaves to return to the trees. After a long winter (and a few last minute snow storms), daylight savings is here and spring has officially arrived.

Not only does the temperature reflect the new season, but spring also triggers spring-cleaning and an overall renewal and refreshment in other areas. Spring is the season for new beginnings, both in nature and in our own lives. If you have been waiting for the right time to break free from your addiction, now is the time. As all things are made new on the outside, your life can be made new from the inside out—drug and alcohol-free.

So often it seems like a bad thing to focus on yourself. However, try practicing putting yourself, your health, and your well-being first and you will be surprised how the other areas of your life improve. By reestablishing a connection with yourself, you may find it easier to reestablish a connection to the loved ones around you as well.

Here is the best news yet: it is never too late to begin anew. Even in the dead of winter where the return of life seems hopeless, the leaves always return, the snow melts, and the flowers bloom. The same is true in your life. There is always time to start again, to get healthy, and to focus first on your wholeness. What better time than spring to start again?
