Is today yet another day one for you? Do you feel like no matter how hard you try, you keep ending up in this same place? Then consider this: instead of trying harder, try something different.
I borrowed this idea from Belle at Tired of Thinking about Drinking.
I wouldn’t be where I am today if I hadn’t stumbled upon her blog almost three years ago. She was my first something different. The second was writing a blog of my own. Hopefully there won’t need to be a third.
Today I feel grateful for:
1. this ongoing record of my journey.
2. the wonderful online sober community.
3. this morning’s gentle yoga that seems to have cured my headache.
p.s. In case you are wondering, I do still sometimes question my choices, have cravings, feel depressed or pissed off. I just choose to ignore those thoughts as much as I can.
