If I wasn’t working a recovery program I know for a fact that I’d be losing my mind during these uncertain times. I don’t know what work and school will look like in the fall. I don’t know if I’ve been exposed. I don’t know when it will end.
It’s been such a stressful time but I’ve been using tools I’ve learned in my 12 step program to get through. I wake up and make a gratitude list of five things I’m grateful for today. I pray to my Higher Power when something doesn’t go the way I think it should. I try to be of service to other recovering alcoholics. I thank my Higher Power each night before I go to bed for another sober day. I choose to believe that nothing happens in this world by accident. I turn my fears into faith. Some days are better than others. I’m still a work in progress but I know that adding alcohol to my stress or anxiety multiplies it by 1000.
I love my life and know that “this too shall pass”.
keep it simple, sisters
