Happy Friday Sober Sisters (Bros too)!
As I evolve in my sobriety I am reminded on a daily basis of how I’ve grown and how much I have left to work on. I am able to recognize and appreciate the beauty in front of me when I stay in the moment and don’t let my character defect of “I want what I want when I want it” get in the way. I have to consciously remind myself to surrender my will and actually receive the miracles that are revealed each and every day.
“I came to (this 12 step program) to stop drinking, I stay in it to change my thinking”. I hear this in the meetings I attend several days a week. In active addiction I didn’t appreciate the beauty around me. I was so focused on my relationship with alcohol I just wasn’t open to fixing what was actually making me want to drink in the first place. Drinking was but a symptom. Now that I have a few years of sobriety under my belt it’s time to look at who I am and how to become the person I would like to be. I want to exude serenity and grace (HAHAH IF YOU KNOW ME DON’T LAUGH TOO HARD).
I have a small group of sober women that I respect and who seem to have their shit together. They seem so “zen” and at peace. The ones that I learn from are the ones who don’t just talk the talk. Anyone can say anything and it’s up to us to sort the bullshit from the wisdom.
I hope your day is filled with beauty and love. Have a wonderful sober weekend.
Keep it simple, sisters.
