A life Journey

2018,48 and kicking! whether my recovery is now an established fact for others to see, whether it is ongoing, I guess all 'recovery stories' imply something, to me before ive read them or entertainted the book title or the newspaper artictle or blog, i kind of think three things, something happened, the person went through a set of experience and then came out the other end of things to a place called recovery.  Maybe there are other words - or phrases -  'journey' comes to mind, probaly the 'unexpected journey', the heros journey all sorts, life journey is proably the best phrase.  'life journey' takes the person where they are at, the totality of a lived experience and the willingness and wantedness to describe the essence of that journey in a truthful and honest way, thats my hope for 2018 to tell my story, my subjective life journey in the hope that it matters, not so much for my ego but people and situations i care about
