Its funny how easy I can slip into that negative place despite everything I have learned over the past year. Slowly but surely I am coming out of that black hole once again and something happened tonight that made me decide to do a gratitude post every night. Do I have everything I want in life? No, but I do have some pretty amazing things... Tonight I got to spend some time talking with a new friend that shared his experiences that made me realize that things will be ok. I am looking froward to seeing this relationship grow. Today I also had the wonderful experience of seeing the light come back on in a fellow alcoholic... And it is only through service work was I able to see this change and it quickly got me out of that place in my head where I did not need to be, just like it is suggested in the big book. Tonight I am also grateful for another friend. A friend that is always willing to listen. A friend that always calls me on my bullshit. A friend that knows how to make me feel important with just a few kind words and a sweet smile. You know who you are and I am glad you are in my life! I cannot do this without you!
Thank you God for keeping me sober another 24 hours and the many blessing you have bestowed upon me.
