a WOW feeling

Posted by George Williams on Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

Hello everyone, thought I would share some of how I’m feeling on the eve of The Road To Recovery event on the 28th. I’m excited of course but sometimes I feel sensitive too. I think it’s a bit like finding a piece of the jigsaw that fits, so many other things become clearer. I feel like it’s also something I’ve been working towards all my life but didn’t really know or understand before.

I’m proud of the whole team at Inexcess for helping bring it all together and making it possible. In my unique and privileged position I’ve met people in my own search for recovery who I believe in and respect. As I look back I’m in a different place than even I could have imagined, it’s all new but it feels so right. Recovery for me has been about discovery, of myself. So many people are working at delivering something that we believe in. It’s not about telling anyone what they should be doing but about showing people what’s working for us, what’s possible.

Imagine when we connect, the people and experience in the room. The feeling, in the right place at the right time. The longest journey is started with the first step. Looking back will be how we can learn and grow. Looking forward will only be limited by our imagination. I’m sharing what I’m learning. Thank you for all the positive messages and genuine excitement about our guests and the day ahead. We’re all in this together.
