Totally Immersed

My first Unity Day was in February, 2010. I had just started attending meetings, but I had no idea how the program worked. At a Unity Day celebration, I was exposed to dozens of people working the Steps. It wasn’t about being overweight; it was about sanity.

At a workshop, I made friends who encouraged me to work the Steps, and they encourage me still. I learned that reaching out to others and caring for them was a gift to myself as well as to them.

I got a sponsor shortly after Unity Day and started following a food plan.

Unity Day was just one day, but it was a great way to get totally immersed in the program. It made me understand how taking someone’s hand is a way to help them succeed as well as paving the way for my own success.

Over the years, I have been part of several Unity Days, but the message is always the same: Everyone is important. This message makes my walk a path of comfort, a comfort my Higher Power ordains.
