My Mission, My Heart is Kim’s very first professionally published piece! How to make a change in Recovery: My Mission, My Heart shows how a woman full of love and spirit for this addiction recovery movement goes extremely out of her way to spread love and passion, and makes it her mission to help those in need from this epidemic. Give it a read, hey give it a share! Not for me, but for the loving caring Kim! We love her and I know you do too, because she is truly helping so many! The more that contribute to success like this the better the world will be!
Over the years I have battled addiction with people I love, beginning with my own. When I got clean 21 years ago I thought Narcotics Anonymous was where a bunch of people doing drugs for together and no one knew about it, until someone explained it to me. I now have developed a strong belief that America and our world is in crisis and the anonymous groups are there, if you find them! We do not have time to wait and hope that people find these groups. People are dying every single day, a senseless, preventable death! I don’t sit around hoping someone finds me and asks for help. I go out and find them, bringing with me, love, understanding and hope to the ones still sick and suffering. I have lost many people to addiction to do nothing, when I know I can do something.
There are people that don’t know where to go, what to do or who to turn to for help. I don’t do this for money, I do this because I feel we have a moral obligation and out of love for people, to find the ones who are lost! The community in Tennessee, where I live is in crisis. The statistics show that in 1984 there were 59 drug related arrests, to 238 per year in 2015. I have spoken to many that feel alone and hopeless. Some want help, others aren’t ready. I have been asked “why do you care, you don’t even know me and no one else seems to care”. The answer is simple.. I love people and life!
I don’t get paid money, I do it out of love. If I can make a difference in the life of one, maybe, just maybe they will make a difference in the life of another. No one needs to die, as so many have. My sister (narcotic overdose), relative (drank himself to death) in the home, my best friend (cocaine overdose), 17 year old friend of my daughter (shot in the head) meth deal gone wrong, countless people I know found dead with needles stuck in their arm. My daughter, her father and my son have all battled addiction. thank goodness my son is in treatment now, for the next 8 months. My daughter still battles and I never give up hope! This is heartbreaking and I cannot do nothing, when I can do something!
My Vision to Change the Face of Recovery!
To reach out to people who suffer from addiction and show them a different way to live, by bringing love, compassion and hope. To open up homes for those who truly want change and a better life! To educate society and remove stigmas/labels that have been placed on addicts, such as junkie, loser, etc. They are human and they are worthy of all things good!
