Lianne MacGregor, MA MEd ACC

I'm Lianne. Thirty years ago I was lost in a relationship with addictive substances. I'd allowed addiction to rob me of everything I cared about and everything I thought I knew about myself.  The losses were staggering.


At some point I decided I wanted a different kind of life.  So I rolled up my sleeves and followed the lead of trusted others and a new life began to take shape - a life that exceeded all my expectations.


Eventually I began to realize that everything I'd learned about recovering from addiction could also apply to other changes and challenges in my life: divorce, relocation, remarriage and step-parenting, healing childhood hurts, caring for critically-ill loved ones, overhauling my career, and reconnecting with my faith.   


Today, I’m convinced recovery is a never-ending journey that encompasses every aspect of life.  And instead of being discouraged by this, I’m excited by it.


So excited, I’ve made the Recovered Life my life’s work.

It’s been a couple of months of altered reality and it looks as though we’re in for a protracted season of something other than “normal”.


How does that sit with you?
