Nobody’s life is absent of struggles, stress and a fair amount of uncertainty. If someone tells you otherwise, they are lying. That’s life, there are ups and downs, good days and bad, sunshine and rain.
But, I will tell you this… as I continue down a road of recovery, I am truly amazed at how the chaos as continued to fade away. An air of simple serenity has filled my days.
when I was drinking, I was truly a self will ran riot. And I caused uncontrolled choas everywhere I went. Both for me and those around me. I look back on the incredible effort I put into alcohol. Plotting, planning, prioritizing to ensure that a drink was always near. Call it insanity, call it infatuation, call it dependency, it was crazy. The amount of effort I put into creating chaos is truly amazing.
Now that I have some decent time under my belt, 1 year in February, I can truly appreciate the amazing feeling of simplicity.
I can enjoy the weekend, appreciate family events, have productive mornings and get decent sleep. All things that did not exist previously.
It seems so simple, and it’s exactly that. I sit here this Saturday morning, feeling well, and I smile!
