This time of year everyone around me is busy, overwhelmed and most of the time, stressed.
I always worried myself about making everything perfect. This year I am taking it easy. One day at a time. Trying to please everyone has put me in a unfocused place in my recovery., in the past years. This year I'm focusing on me.
January, I will be 9 years sober. And I find myself feeling like the ones around me have forgotten how hard I have been fighting a battle within myself. Just mainly for validation and support still.
I also have to realize. They aren't in this battle. I am. I get wrapped up in the whole taking care of the family that I let my spirituality get thrown off course.
Meetings and surrounding myself with other recovering alcoholics helps me stay grounded and feel loved. I have to stay connected.
Meeting makers make it. One day at a time.
Everyone Happy Holidays! And Happy New Year!
Grateful for another year sober.
