Recovery as Art, Part Three

Artistic creation, regardless of type, uses incremental acts to support a whole (non-incremental) purpose. As each step is taken, the artist reviews how well the current pattern fits into the intuited pattern.

Life is like that. We build ourselves through individual actions, constantly learning, and comparing ourselves with our goals.

Recovery is also a journey of discovery, as we move toward a partially seen future. We make choices everyday, many times a day, and, to some extent, each choice either supports or undermines our journey of recovery.

We must keep recovery in mind, so that it can affect all those decisions to the extent the decisions either support or undermine our purpose.
