In sobriety, we often talk about getting through difficulty by remembering that we only need to stay sober today. That concept often leads to saying, “one day at a time, maybe only one moment at a time.”
Recovery slogans are a dime a dozen, yet every one of them has had more than ten cents’ value for me at one time or another.
“Just for today” and “one day at a time” are perfect examples of the mindfulness approach that recovery encourages.
With that said, it is my intention to share my story and experience in early recovery, as often as I can here. This blog is meant to remind me to think, notice, and appreciate the present.
Life is, after all, a gift. One that I am ever-increasingly grateful to experience!
With loving thoughts,
