Today is a magical day!
It’s a Tuesday morning, I am laying in bed, nauseous, pregnant, stressing about last minute Christmas shopping, thinking about all the laundry I have to do, wondering what I should make my 2 year old for lunch, and trying to remember the last time I showered. #momlife
Doesn’t sound magical huh?
Well, 6 and a half years ago- the only thing that was on my mind was getting high. My life looked very different than what it looks like today- spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
While everyone was in the Christmas spirit, I was dreading having to live another day. I was alone, miserable, and just sick and tired of being sick and tired.
So when I say any day sober is a good day, I mean it. I rather be stressing over things like laundry and cleaning than stressing over how I was going to get high. It was the only thing I cared about. I didn’t know what true happiness meant. And I never even thought about anyone else, let alone their happiness.
Today, I do. I get to make choices today and decide what makes me happy, and then I get to share that with other people.
I am a good mom, wife, friend, sister, daughter, aunt, employee, sponsor, sponsee, and a good person in general. Can you say the same?
