Stress About Stress
Great things happen when you strive to do better. I’m one of those people that worry about anything and everything. I stress about stress. But with this program I am learning to not stress about things that are out of my control.
Gratitude For Support
I am absolutely grateful for everyone in my support group. Without these ladies I do not know where I would be today. In my active addiction I had no idea what it meant to be grateful for anything. I was absolutely miserable and hating life. My son is 4 years old and I couldn’t even enjoy my time with him. Before recovery was in the grips of destruction and I couldn’t enjoy anything. In these last 59 days I have made so much progress with the help of my support group and the house where I live. I am beyond grateful for the owner of my house Angelique that gave me a chance to come here. I’m grateful to be able to mend friendships especially with my friend Nikki. She has been a big supporter of mine since day one.
Gratitude For My Life
I’m alive today, able to enjoy everything that’s going on in my life and for that I am grateful. I am beyond grateful to still have my job and be able to move up in my company. I am grateful that I still have a relationship with my son, although that situation is on a rocky road, I have faith that if I keep doing the next right thing that it’ll all work out in the end. I’m grateful that I don’t have to wake up in the morning and rely on a chemical substance to get me going. All of this would not be possible if I gave up the fight.
Choose To Be Happy
Day by day I’m learning to love this girl in the mirror. I’m learning to be grateful for every situation and make a positive out of it. Just for today I choose to be happy and love myself and stay clean. I’m better then I was yesterday, learning to treat myself better today and preparing myself for tomorrow. They said hold on, the pain ends, and I’m beginning to see that light at the end of the tunnel. I thank the program of Narcotics Anonymous for helping become a better person every day. I am an addict. 59 days clean today with the grace of God.
Grateful addict in recovery, Lauren
