Day 283

The lessons never stop coming, good and bad. I spent way too many years numb to them, just snoozing through life barely surviving, with no understanding of true happiness & fulfillment.

I’m feeling clearer & clearer with each passing month. I am happy, but the joyous feelings come & go– which is normal and ok. Instead of being numb 100% of the time, I feel the highs and lows of everyday life. This is a blessing. The natural highs are truly wonderful. And the lows keep us grounded and grateful for the good times.

I look back at my first blog posts and am astounded at how much I’ve grown and changed since that 1st little voice piped up & told me that I was drinking too much and needed to stop.

Now, a few years, some relapses, many many day 1’s later and here I am at day 283 😎☀️
