In my drinking days if I had written a post like the last one, riddled with non connecting thoughts and odd transitions, I would have…1) Taken it down immediately, 2) Been horrified at myself for writing it in the first place 3) Hoped like hell no one had read it!
In recovery, I am beginning to realize the value of the JOURNEY. All the twists, turns, ups and downs of life. Without being “touchy” or paranoid – wondering if I made the screw up it when I was drinking or coming down. I had completely lost trust in myself. And by losing trust in myself I stopped doing things because I didn’t know what condition I would be in for moment to moment. I am leaving that post up because it reminds me I am not perfect, I am not meant to be perfect and the world isn’t going to end.
Here’s to “Keeping It Simple!”
