The Wild Adventure
Life was a lot fuller when she began living in the solution and not the problem
When I was growing up, I had a deep need to be seen. A need to be loved more than what you were already giving me. A need to be a part of a group that would fulfill and satisfy my craving for excitement and wild adventure.
You hear people at meetings talk about feeling different. I identified with that feeling. I never really understood why.
But through prayer and meditation, I found a bigger God. I learned that I don't need to know all the answers. I don't have to always know "why" something is.
