Sometimes I have these moments of pure awareness of how grateful I really am to be sober. Being in AA and more specifically, being in recovery, has allowed me to have strength to be true to myself.
Today I got to be of service, pray, meditate, listen, learn, care, love, be kind, eat well, take a nap and experience many other things which never used to be important to me. I love myself and my life today because of The Spirit of the Fellowship and because of a vital spiritual experience that has brought me a higher power.
Being sober rocks and being aware of how much it rocks makes me happy, joyous and free. I am comfortable in my skin and comfortable not being perfect. I’ve never had that before and for that I am grateful.
