To me, action in recovery means activating my words into behaviors; showing progress by putting one foot in front of the other. Action feels uncomfortable, at times, because when the drugs are gone and I start to feel things again for the first time clean and sober. By putting my words into play, I can see who I really am by pushing myself through uncomfortable feelings and demonstrating action, despite how difficult it may be. Action is a big part of recovery; activating myself in uncharted waters for the first time is huge and amazing to see, along with feel. Action helps me grow and gives me the opportunity to re-create myself into the person I want to be. Without action, no progress can truly be made.
