My Medallions

My daughter gave me a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift: a small wooden box for all my CoDA chips and medallions. The current one is displayed on the top. I love it! Didn’t know such a thing existed.

Every day now I see my VII surrounded by the Serenity Prayer — a good reminder of how far I’ve come on my CoDA recovery journey. When I get stressed and fearful about speaking up for myself it’s good to reflect on where I’ve been and where I want to be. I know the only way to get there is by walking through it. No shortcuts. No easy paths. Yet I’m proud of myself every time I do!

So, it’s worth pushing through the hard parts to get there. Consistently showing up for myself is huge. A milestone in my recovery. And I love having this little box as a daily reminder.
