There’s beauty in the struggle and purpose in the pain. Struggling isn’t comfortable, it’s not something that most of us enjoy, but it reveals our strength and ability to persevere. It’s at these times when we’re down and out, seemingly at rock bottom, where we find out what we’re made of. We find our strength. It can be easy to give into the struggle believing that things will never get better, that we should be further along than we are, but the struggle isn’t ours to fight. While we don’t enjoy the struggle, the struggle isn’t meant to break us, it’s meant to polish us, to strip away that which was holding us back and elevate us to a new level, a level of influence, of impact, to give hope to others who may be struggling. The struggle isn’t about us, most of of the time it’s far bigger than us. Let’s grow through the struggle, knowing that our momentary discomfort is lending hope to others. YOU have a high calling on your life and there is power in your testimony of Rising Above the struggle. #riseabove #beautifullife

Change is uncomfortable, it can leave us feeling anxious and unsure of what may be, but without change there is no progress. The uncertainty that comes with change can be debilitating. We can find ourselves wondering, creating false realities, and compiling doubts. This can fill our time, but it doesn’t move us forward. We can feel fearful with change and wonder if we’ll go from bad to worse, but what if the change goes from bad to good to great. When we venture into this unknown we discover ourselves, what we’re made of and who we really are. Though, in the moment the uncertainty of what could be can feel painful, our greatest blessing can be found on the other side of fear and pain. #riseabove #pressforward

Support others in recovery. Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.
With our lips we speak, we use our voices to tell a story, a story of hope, of heartache, of perseverance, of potential. With our voices we are heard. But, not all who have a voice are able to use it, not all who have a voice are heard, and not all who are heard are listened to. When we choose to not only hear, but to listen, to listen with open hearts, open minds, and open hands we show love. We show love for a life that has seen struggle. The struggle is real. We’re not exempt from the struggle of life, each of us faces our own struggle at one point or another. While it’s easy to hear and listen to the struggle, the despair within the voice, the voice is not a voice solely of struggle. The voice, our voices, indeed tell of a past that saw struggle, but more importantly they tell of a future, a much greater future, a future graced with hope, a future of purpose, a future that doesn’t forget the past, but chooses to focus on life after the struggle. Our voices tell stories of hope. Choose to hear and listen to the hope and victory in the voices. Many times we choose to ignore what follows the struggle, we fail to acknowledge that the road after the struggle is one filled with beauty and purpose. Let’s use our voices to share the story of hope, the story that someone else may be waiting to hear, the story that may change someone’s life, the story that shows that we do recover, we do succeed, we do rise above. @ryanjhampton As we move into 2019, we’re excited to expand our mission from just @gofit_dining_llc as we get ready to launch a new phase of programs to further support and share love with the amazing recovery community! Passionate about recovery? We’d love to connect and collaborate to support this amazing community! #riseabove #supportrecovery

Dream. Dream Big. Dreams become reality when we take that first step, that first step to believe that what has been placed on our hearts is possible. We all have dreams, but what keeps some of us from pursuing our dreams? FEAR. Fear tells us that we’ll never make it, that we’re not good enough, that we weren’t born into the right family or we don’t have the connections or credentials to make a difference. Our desire to make an impact and our faith in the beauty and potential that our dreams hold must be greater than our fear. Because, our dreams are not just about us. Our dreams may be the answer someone has been praying for. So, when we listen to the lies of fear we not only discount our own potential for greatness, we’re sacrificing the opportunity to give someone else hope and a chance at a better life. It doesn’t matter the past that you’ve come from or what you’ve done, your dreams have power, power to change this world. Kick fear in the teeth and believe in the beauty of your dreams. Rise Above. #riseabove #dreambigger
When your child struggles with addiction, it's the voice of addiction you hear. It's not the voice of the child you cherish. Addiction knows what it wants and will say anything to get it, no matter how hurtful. Hidden inside is a child who is lost and sad, who never meant to hurt you, who loves you deeply. Remember that.⠀ ⠀ #iloveyoumom #imsosorry #loveofason #addictionhurts #familyrecovery #tendingdandelions #sandraswenson

Broken pieces lead to beautiful destinations. When we’re at the lowest points in our lives, when it feels like there’s no way out, nowhere to turn it’s at that moment that our destiny is being written. It’s in the process of being broken, broken from what was holding us captive, broken from the life we once knew, broken from all security that our lives become testimonies of hope to others. Braking is uncomfortable, it’s messy, but peace in the braking comes when we understand there is purpose for the pain. Sometimes we think that a person is weak if they’re broken, when in reality the strongest warriors are those who’ve been broken and lived to tell about it. The sharing of the brokenness lends hope, healing, and the power to change lives. Life and what each of us has to go through isn’t always comfortable, but it’s never without purpose. Though as individuals we may be broken, together we are complete, a key piece in the puzzle of life meant to support one another, to build each other up, to rise above. #riseabove #brokenpieces

What defines you? Do you choose to allow your past, who you were and what you’ve done to define you? Maybe it’s what others say or think about you that you choose to let define you. What defines us ultimately controls us, dictating our outlook on ourselves and life as a whole. Consider who or what you’re giving authority to define your life, to define you, to define your potential, purpose and calling. Is it lifting you higher to a future filled with success? Hold on to the future promise that is yours, acknowledging that the pain of the past has prepared you to rise above. The past is now history, it doesn’t define you. You’re no longer a prisoner to your past. You’ve been polished, perfected and redefined for a glorious future! It’s time to Rise Above. #riseabove #brightfutureahead
With open hands we open our hearts. We open ourselves up to give and receive love, encouragement, hope and strength. With open hands we surrender, surrendering to a past that held us captive. With open hands we accept, we accept what was, what is and the reach towards the destiny that will be, accepting the hope of a bright future. Open hands reveal wounds, they reveal vulnerability, but they also reveal strength, a strength to rise above, a strength to look ahead to a new tomorrow, a strength to release the past and embrace the future. With open hands and an open heart we find our voice, a voice that is not content with the status quo, a voice that will not back down, a voice that stands up for those who’ve been pushed down. Opening our hands opens us up to be warriors. Warriors fight from the fire, the burning passion deep within their hearts. So, open your hands, open your hands to give and receive a bright future. With open hands and open hearts we give back to support recovery, to foster a community of wellness and support, to give hope, to give a voice and to help rise above. #riseabove #giveback
The thankful heart opens the door to an abundant life. Approaching life with thankfulness, and an eye that sees the good in each situation, the good in others, the good in ourselves, and the good that can come from struggles changes our outlook on life. No longer are we concerned with temporal components of life, the things that at the end of the day really don’t matter, rather, our focus becomes set on the impact our lives are having. When we choose to place ourselves in a position of service, sharing our experiences with others, we give others the strength to rise above, to have a voice, to see the good that can come from the struggle. In turn, we become thankful for the struggle. The struggle was never meant to break us, it was a momentary test, a test that we not only overcome and rise above, but one that we help others rise above. As we express gratitude for where we’ve come from and what we’ve been through we release ourselves from the chains of the past; the chains of addiction, depression, hopelessness, failure and regret. Speaking words of gratitude set us free, free from our past, free from limiting beliefs, free to live a life of more. So, consider, what or who are you thankful for today? Giving thanks for the presence and impact others have on our lives not only expresses unconditional love, it sets that person free from their past, a past that many times is thought to be a life sentence. Giving thanks for others gives the gift of hope. As we give thanks for our loved ones we reveal who we really are and the light we’re choosing to reflect in life. Give thanks for your past - set yourself free. Give thanks for others - set them free. Give thanks each day - set the world free. #riseabove #givethanks
In June of last year, *James joined our Transitional Housing Program (THP), which supports men experiencing a substance use disorder and homelessness. As part of THP, James participated in our outpatient treatment programs and enrolled in a job training program, ultimately securing full-time employment at an electric company. In addition to finding and maintaining his recovery, James rebuilt some of the relationships in his life, including those with his mother and son. James said that when he first joined THP, he didn’t think he would make it. Thanks to support from H.A.S. he is now celebrating more than 17 months of sobriety. #HASCares #GivingTuesday #RecoveryIsPossible #SupportRecovery *Name has been changed.
