What will you do with your one wild and precious life?

Mary Oliver’s one repeated question difficult, “What will you do with your one wild and precious life?” This is not a dress rehearsal. After conquering one’s struggle with addictions what is next? It is important to set goals, find meaning and purpose in life. Healing the emptiness that may be left over from years of substance use and lack of commitment will create motivation for one to succeed and live life to the fullest.

Finding purpose in early recovery can actually be more difficult that imagined. Early recovery is a time of confusion, and the lack of clarity can make it challenging to find a path and meaning in life. Having to learn about reality on life’s terms and how to move forward can be stressful and scary.

It is beneficial for that person to look deep within themselves and seek out what they previously enjoyed doing or what they feel would give them a sense of fulfillment and gratitude. It is good to remind oneself what you once loved and could spend time doing again. The possibilities are endless. Having hobbies and interests are a way to use one’s time and prevent relapse. Too much free time and the resulting boredom is common trigger for many people.
