Take it 1 day at a time

I grew up in #AA

Often, you don’t realize how unique parts of your upbringing are because you don’t know anything different.

I knew my father was a recovering addict. He recovered in plain sight…in front of my eyes. He included me in the process. He did everything he possibly could to make sure I didn’t follow in his path.

Now as an adult looking back I realize how special my upbringing was. My father opened my eyes to the possibilities of life…good and bad. He shined a light on many potential hazardous paths and the ones that led to a more fulfilled life.

I am a firm believer that the 12 step program should be taught in schools. Everyone should know these steps and live by them.

One thing that I am really practicing right now is “take it 1 day at a time”

In AA they celebrate the small victories because they know that they are the hardest to win.

You get a chip after your first 24 hours of sobriety.

So today I call upon the learnings of my youth

?? take it 1 day at a time

?? The #serenityprayer

?? take responsibility

I am admittedly struggling right now. I have to focus on today…this exact moment that I am in. That is all I have to worry about.

This gives me a sense of relief. Takes pressure off.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Are you kicking yourself for making bad choices? Have you hurt someone as a result?

Take responsibility, know that some things are too big for us and hand it to god, ask for forgiveness from others and from yourself

One day at a time…one minute at a time

Celebrate your victory before bed tonight
