As the sun caught my eye through the kitchen window today, I heard a small voice in my head say “The sun is up and I am alive”. Seemed odd at the time, but it gave me something positive to contemplate during meditation this morning. What a gift today is! I should be paying attention to the sunrise every day.
I woke up feeling more confident about the business I’m starting from home. I even have a networking event tomorrow that doesn’t have me in an anxiety-ridden tizzy! My husband is working extra hard to make sure I can give my venture a fighting chance. Then, on a much less serious note, my oldest WOKE UP ON HER OWN for camp this morning and the other two really didn’t put up a fight when it was their turn to rise and shine. We were out the door for camp on time (this is not a regular occurrence). I made it through the much-feared quality time with my mother on Tuesday (without drinking or losing my cool) and am not quite as hesitant to take her to a follow-up appointment tomorrow.
I have what so many other alcoholics never get: a REAL second chance – no related legal, family or medical issues. It’s a freaking miracle and I don’t intend to squander it. I hope your day started just as sunny as mine. If not, there is always tomorrow. Gotta love that 24-hour cycle!
