Today I am not going to shy away from anything that is happening to me.
I'm not going to run from nerves or frustration.
I'm not going to numb or avoid anger, boredom or unease.
Today I'm going to allow all of my emotions to be felt in all their raw glory.
Today I'm going to put my best foot forward and face ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that comes at me with a clear head and honest intention.
I'm going to accept that I'm not perfect, and nor is life, and that's perfectly ok.
Today might be fantastic, it might be totally meh or it might be downright hard. Whatever the case I'm going to be ok.
I'm going to get through to bedtime without reaching for any booze to help get me through.
Because I am sober, I am in recovery, and this is what I do. I face every day raw.
It's a gritty way to live sometimes - especially when the going gets tough - but overall incredibly satisfying and rewarding. I wouldn't want it any other way.
Love, Mrs D xxx
