How to be nice…to myself 5/23

This will post on my 12 year sober anniversary.

I have taken this day off from work and I will spend it sharing my story with others in recovery, my friends, my mom and my sister n law.

I will spend it with the people who have walked by my side, have answered my phone calls, have listened to my insanity, have talked me off of many ledges and told me I COULD do this.

I will spend it with the people who have experienced god not in a church but in a room full of strangers.

I will spend it with the best of the best. With the man or woman who is brand new and wants to get sober today, but does not know how. And with the men and woman who have had decades of clean time.

The love and appreciation I have for this journey called life…is nothing that I can actually put into words.

But I will say, it is becoming more and more magical each day.

I feel as if I am just beginning.

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!

    1. I’m living in joy today – life is good. One of my friends gave me a snow globe today with two angels in it – she said that when the dust kicks up it’s hard to see those angels but when it settles and it is clear they are right there.
      And then I said – β€œbut even the dust is sparkly and pretty β€œ
      I surprised myself πŸ’œ
