I just wanted to say I hope you are all having a sober Tuesday.
I am grateful for regular days. Calm days. Days where I go to work, I eat the lunch I made the night before, go to yoga and relax. Days that many people take for granted.
I went my regular Monday meeting last night. I almost skipped it. I feel pretty comfortable in my sobriety. I was lazy. But hubby was interested in going, so along I went.
As usual, I’m glad we did. Three different people came looking for help after relapsing over the weekend. Their stories were different, but generally they all felt they were “good”. That they had enough knowledge, self awareness, therapy, AA, whatever, that they could have a drink.
It didn’t work out well for any of them.
Yoga has become a vital part of my life. It required time, effort and practice. A life time of practice. Sobriety seems similar. If I want to keep it, I need to put some work into it. Things that are worth having are worth working for.
Have a good sober day. Life has a lot to offer when you are awake to see it.
