Eminem Gives Recovery Major Props On the Grammy’s

posted by sherrygaba

 Celebrities tend to spend a large amount of time dealing
with press, both positive and negative. The general population loves to see
what their favorite celeb’s are wearing and what antics they are up to. The
Grammy’s last night was no exception. From Lady Gaga showing up in an egg to
Christina Aguilera having a less than graceful moment, the headlines were full
of news regarding the awards show. Among these headlines were inquiries about
the pendent worn by Eminem during his performance. Some speculated it was a
symbol linking the rapper to the Illuminati, but for those in the loop, the
symbol had a much deeper meaning.

 The pendent worn by Eminem at the Grammy’s was a
diamond-encrusted circle with a triangle in the center. For those that may not
be aware, this is a universal symbol for Alcoholics Anonymous. The history of
the symbol goes back decades and the three sides of the triangle have
significant meanings for those in recovery. Each side of the triangle
represents three major components of a member of the fellowship of Alcoholics
Anonymous: unity, service and recovery. The number three is also important
because it relates to the three aspects of the disease of addiction: physical,
mental and spiritual. The circle surrounding the triangle represents wholeness
and serenity, things that an addict in recovery strives for. Having this symbol
worn by such a public figure shows his support of recovery and his openness
towards placing his recovery in the public eye.

 All too often we read about celebrities that are suffering
with the disease
of addiction
. We read about their antics, the consequences of their actions
and we look at the pictures of them when they are at their worst. It was
refreshing and empowering to see Eminem show the other side of the disease of
addiction. He is showing that there is hope and celebration in recovery from
drugs and alcohol. He did this by wearing a piece of jewelry that shows his
commitment to his personal recovery. There are many ways that you can display
your pride for your personal recovery, here are some examples of
jewelry
that symbolize your personal journey through recovery.
