I wanted to take the time to wish everyone a Happy Easter! I know I am going to spend the holiday feeling exhausted because I barely slept again. Yay me! This is going to be my first Easter in years without my family. I am not going to let that bring me down this time right now. Every though my mom, my siblings through her, and I are not on speaking terms. I have to at least say that I hope that have a good holiday and that I am praying for them.
It’s not even 7 am yet, as I am writing this, but I know that I have to make sure that I am at least up by 11:15ish this afternoon because I am meeting with my sponsor to start reviewing my fourth step, chat and read some literature. I know since I am going to be around people who will be drinking this evening, that I have to make sure that I am in the right state of mind to handle this the best that I can. Especially since I have not gotten a good night sleep since Thursday night. Ironically, I feel wide awake. (Could this be an upcoming manic episode in the works?)
I am going to work with my sponsor until about 1:30 pm so she could go to a meeting. I am contemplating asking her if I can go with her depending on my energy levels this afternoon.
After that, whenever I get home, I have to get ready to go to an Easter dinner party at my boyfriend’s parents house—they are basically like my in-laws. On June 1, 2018, it will be six long years that we have been together. I must say, after out major break up, everything has been going really well. We are better than ever. Sometimes you have to step back from a situation in order to repair something and make it better than ever. I know I made the right decision this time. We’ve been back together for seven months and no major problems! 🙂 ♥ #BLESSED
Here is to hoping for my first good holiday in a few months!
I have a good feeling about today. I am feeling happy and positive already this morning.
I wish everyone a Happy Easter! (And April Fool’s Day!) To those in recovery right along with me—Stay safe. Stay Sober!
