Oh Allison, I like this visual too! Thanks for sharing!

: A while ago I posted about a plant.
: It was a volunteer in a geranium
: pot. Our puppy chewed on the
: geranium and they are toxic and it
: was all scraggly, so we pulled it
: out of the pot. We wanted to keep
: the volunteer plant. It had little
: rhizomes, so we planted them and
: put the pot on the windowsill in
: the bathroom. And then we just
: kept watering the pot, even though
: there was no visible plant in it.
: Eventually, a little shoot came
: up. And I said it was like the
: program - even when it doesn't
: look like anything is happening,
: keep showing up, keep watering
: your plant, and something will
: happen.

: Well, the windowsill is really high,
: so I have to take the plant down
: to water it or even see what's
: going on. I let it go too long
: without water, and the little
: shoot shrivelled and died. But I
: knew those rhizomes were still in
: there, and they can go dormant and
: then come back, so I kept watering
: the pot of soil. Yesterday I took
: it down to check it, and there
: were two little shoots coming up!

: And this is also like the program.
: You may have ups and downs while
: you are working on the steps.
: Maybe you stopped doing breakfast
: for a while, or you started eating
: whites again, or you started
: eating candy between meals. But
: those little recovery seeds are
: still inside you. Don't give up.
: Go back and start again. Look at
: it as a learning experience. And
: your recovery will come back,
: maybe even stronger than before.
: Just because there's a little
: stumble in your path doesn't mean
: it's over, you failed, etc.
: Allison
