A New Beginning

Posted by George Williams on Monday, February 15th, 2010

Hi everyone, well I have got to say that “points of view, a new beginning” has made me feel really proud. It’s captured everything I could have wished for from the Road to Recovery. The people, the atmosphere, the shift of attitudes and perceptions.

It is a journey into the unknown, so lets embrace it all. It’s not one size fits all and in my search for recovery I’m definitely meeting many people turning their lives around in an abundance of ways. What’s key however is that we start “within”. Letting go of our fears, anxieties and getting to the truth of it all. Byron Katie has given us a very user friendly tool to help understand how our thoughts are influencing our beliefs and behaviour.

I met a guy struggling by my offices the other day, living rough and sat their looking empty and worthless. This is when you have to stop and take time out, not to preach but to listen. I always try to give people hope and when they’re ready that there is help out there. I told him not to give up, that even in his darkest hour, there can still be light and that he more than anyone had something to offer. You just have to get back on your feet and in with the right crowd.

Obviously I gave him a few quid, not too much, nor too little.

If we care, really care, then lets do something about it. Most of all lets model it ourselves, just the best that we can be. All of this starts with ourselves, it’s amongst our family and friends, within our workplace and community. We are only limited by our imagination and held back by our fears

Than you for all your emails, I enjoy sharing in your journey’s and growth.
