Trudging



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I neither need to nor want to drink any alcohol today; if you knew me 5 years ago, you'd say I am lying

that I'm not a liar

that there's always time to do the important things

that I don't regret my past nor do I wish to shut the door on it

that my sobriety requires willingness, my recovery requires action

"Power is so characteristically calm, that calmness in itself has the aspect of strength."
-- Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

I'm glad my recovery requires action...some days it's the only thing that gets me off my butt.
God knows I'm willing :)

Is that a one way street?

Remember it's the journey, not the destination.

Thanks for the reminders that also help me work in recovery. It would make a nice bike ride up that mountain.
