Episode 149: How Surrender Leads to Victory Not Loss

I heard someone talking about their journey to starting recovery and how they didn’t ever want to surrender anything because that would mean that they would lose. I don’t believe that surrender in recovery means you lose, so I wanted to bring it to you this week. That’s why episode 149 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about how surrender leads to victory! 

In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of surrendering in recovery and actionable steps you can take right now to feel better about surrendering and lean into it to lead to victory. It never even occurred to me when I started my own journey that the surrendering you did in recovery was the same in battle or that people felt that way. You don’t lose in surrendering in recovery; in fact the surrendering you do in recovery leads to victory.

I surrendered so many battles, and surrendered to the perfect rhythm and flow of life for me. That feels like victory to me. So be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.

What is Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery?

This is the podcast “Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery.” It will help people who want to heal to move from fragmented to whole.

Hi, I’m Barb! I share my experience, strength and hope from 12 step recovery in each episode. They’re all 20 minutes or less. Unlike most recovery podcasts where you hear a person’s whole story, in this one each episode is about a specific topic.

There are many life lessons from 12 step recovery that are applicable to those in and outside of recovery. This podcast brings some of those lessons to the airwaves, including such topics as learning acceptance, recognizing and overcoming victim mentality and establishing healthy boundaries.
