It's my Friday

I work weekends, so today is my Friday. Thank heaven! I'm tired. More tired than usual this weekend.

Apparently, it shows, because my sponsor gave me a seven day writing assignment. Gratitude lists, every day, 10 things, no repeats, and I can't be grateful that the sun is shining in Alaska because that doesn't directly affect me.

I'm sure I can find 70 things to he grateful for, right? This is why I have a sponsor, yo. I can't so this shit alone.

I celebrated 8 years in recovery last night at my home group. I have to be honest--I never thought I'd still be clean eight years after I picked up my last white key tag. Of course, I couldn't think that far ahead back then.

It's been a lovely journey thus far, in spite of some of the barren wastelands I have caused myself to have to travel through. But y'all probably don't want to read about barren wastelands; y'all want to hear about celebrations.

I wore sparkly shoes. We busted a pinata. There were glow stick bracelet party favors. It was fun, yo.

Now, I'm off to get ready for work. Because it's my Friday. Imma sleep a lot tomorrow, which is really the best way to handle everybody else's Monday, don't you think?

  1. Congrats on eight years! And as for the grateful assignment, just focus on the little things. The things you typically take for granted. Because those things, they mean everything at times. xoxo

  3. Congrats on 8 years! That's a huge accomplishment. Good luck with the gratitude lists. I think you'll find all sorts of things you didn't even realize you were grateful for. (((hugs)))
