One Day at a Time

A single day is enough to make us a little larger.” – Paul Klee

In the beginning of my recovery journey I needed to break the chain of addiction.  I could not see past the day let alone a long and prosperous recovery.  I had little hope because every attempt to recover in the past I had failed at in my mind!  I was told to take it one day at a time.  Although it seemed to be ridiculous to think that way I took the leap of faith.

Every time I began to think of the future, things like how do you get married if you can not do the toast to a great future?  Heck I did not have a girlfriend and I was worried about marriage!  I worried about Christenings, funerals (the Irish ones of course) everything in my life revolved around the drink!  It was natural to me, I simply could not comprehend a life free of alcohol.  What fun would I ever have?

Well taking it one day at a time my perspective slowly changed.  Today at a wedding I chuckle at all the idiots that get drunk and make fools of themselves.  That was me!  Today I enjoy life one day at a time, day by day!

Go, Go, Go…
