“I am finally feeling happy again…connected again, and look forward to all that is yet to come and that which is certain to reveal itself. I have learned of late that it is all about surrounding myself with those who are happy…self confident…self aware…like minded…eager to arise in the morning and seize the day…eager to be of service, and eager to create their own happiness…from within…and to offer joy around them. No longer will I align myself with those who have nearly drained all of my energy because they have no desire to help themselves up…or help themselves out of the darkness.

We can offer our assistance…love someone with everything we have to offer, to the point of exhaustion, and if they are unwilling or unable to receive the offer…we have to accept, and respect…and move on. I have been sleeping more soundly knowing that I did all that I could, as I do each day with those I work with in recovery…and remember that the rest is up to them.” – Wendy Blanchard, M.S., CHHC
