After discovering the limitations and narrow vision that I lived with when I came to Bowen 16 months ago I look back at my time there. I was in a situation no different than a wild mustang in a small corral rejecting or seeing any new ideas. Your program allowed me to pause and see the corral of alcohol, pain killers, and depression that circled around me. Your efforts over the course of a few weeks showed me where the gate was. I now had simple choice to stay in that familiar small world or take the 1st step out into new territory where my strong will is of no use.
I know that corral will always exist and always be the same, but if the choice of freedom from it is offered I’ll take it even if I don’t know the trail very well.
Thank’s for opening the gate!
