Two completed weeks without alcohol
and now the initial euphoria has begun to wear off,
but the intention toward good health
still burns hot in the embers of my heart.
When a plateau is reached
there are three basic choices that can be made –
hold steady and chill out,
taking in the new sights
from a level you haven’t been at for awhile,
lose focus and start to slip
back down the mountain to the point
from whence you began the climb,
or keep the head held high, take a deep breath,
and carry on in an upward direction
toward the next peak moment
where an even better view will provide
a higher perspective of the overall journey.
Stages of evolution
provide tests and trials of progression,
and present challenges
that serve as opportunities for further adaptation.
Fourteen days are not enough
to change every bad habit energy
that I’ve developed over the many years of debauchery,
but fourteen days are just enough
to provide the courage and inner resolve
necessary to continue forward toward the goal
of perfect peace, radiant health,
unconditional love, and high vibration.
Give me two more weeks along this course
and watch how the burgeoning shine
transforms into a full-fledged fire.
