Today, there are many things I can’t do.
For instance, I can’t fix my relationship with my mother.
I can’t pay off all my bills today.
I can’t seem to get motivated to do all the things that “must” be done around my house/yard.
But there is one thing I can do. I get to do. I choose to do.
It’s completely within my control. I get the choice. That freedom is empowering.
I can choose not to drink today. I can be sober and alcohol free today.
Inspired by an old friend that I just found out has been sober for 12 years!
Day 1 all over again after many false starts, failed, and aborted attempts.
But failing is an integral part of success. It teaches you what does not work.
