Recovery Life Check In
I’m just checking in with my recovery life. The way my life is going right now I wouldn’t change for the world. When I choose to look at the positive rather then the negative my whole mindset changes. Not everyday is all rainbows and ponies but everyday clean is better then any day I had using. I have been going through a situation with my son’s father and I was recently served child support papers. My first thought was to retaliate but then I prayed about it and put it in my higher powers hands. I am still waiting to see where we are going to go from here but I am no longer stressing about it.
On A Good Note
On a good note I have gained a lot of friendships lately and have friends here that I’m able to talk to when I can’t reach my sponsor. Today I have best friends that are women. Never did I think I would befriend a woman again after my best friend passed. I have people that truly care about me and sincerely ask how my day is and know when I need to someone to talk to verses needing to just be alone.
My Life Is Amazing
I’m working two jobs but my schedules haven’t been clashing to much lately, because I asked for some leeway. My request was to not to be scheduled crazy closing shifts since I have to be up early to open. Right now I don’t see my son as much as I would like but in time things are going to change. My life is amazing and I couldn’t do it without NA my support group and my friends who have turned into family. I am an addict. And I have been clean for a little over seven months now.
