In the heat of my addiction, I did things the hard way. Even the most simple task I turned into a crazy burden. It was exhausting to be around me. I was argumentative and could turn any situation into a “us vs. them” mentality.
No joke, I needed to change. I was the one creating unbearable weight. I was the source of my pain. I was afraid of who I’d become without alcohol. I chose a harder life than I deserved.
In recovery taking the first step helped me let go of my ego. Let go of my belief of how things “should be”. I’m filled with gratitude that I can be reminded it’s okay to live life with less burdens.
Gratitude of the day: Today I’m thankful for my higher power. Showing me a simpler life, showing me I don’t have to create mountains out of molehills.
Action of the day: Today I’ll list at least one thing that I can do right now to make my life easier. I’ll share that one thing with a close family member of friend.
