Happy Easter (And Ironically April Fools Day!)


Happy Easter

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.

Good Morning!

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!


Leave some comments below about what plans you have, and how you’re feeling today? I would really like to know!
