Day 146: train your mind


In an effort to be my mostly positive self, I thought it would be helpful for me to look for some things that I genuinely appreciate about my mom.


does not criticize me.

is generous when it comes to the big stuff (like helping kids with college).

encourages me when I want to do things I might feel guilty about (like naps).

does not put a lot of demands on me.

tries to be helpful.


Happy Sober Monday,

  1. Interesting that we all seem to have these complex, complicated relationships with their mothers. As I’ve gotten older, I found through some self-reflection, that what I struggle with in her personality is also mirrored in my own personality and that’s a brutal pill to swallow. I’m glad that you’re reflecting on the positive things, I think we all need to do more of that no matter what it is. Congrats on staying sober!
