We all have our challenges. Challenges that are small or big, important or not so important.

Whatever we are challenged by, we all face the same solution.

We have to muster up the courage to face up to reality and take a step to being honest with ourselves. The thing I love about AA is, we try to stay in solution. Even if it moves really slow and it looks like there is no end to our problems, if we just take a little step towards facing reality and doing some thing about it, we will eventually be free.

“A life unexamined is not worth living.” Socrates

I take some of my problems minute by minute, second by second, breathing into my fear and making choices that are truly hard.

I have learned to be patient and trust that if it is meant to be it will be. I have learned to take action and not live in fantasy world. That part sucks sometimes, but I don’t have the luxury of shopping it, eating it, drinking it or drugging it away.

The language of letting go and the language of honesty to myself has been the best solution for me.

I may not be doing what others think is best for me, but I am doing what my intuition says is best, even if it looks really stupid.

I am so lucky I got it early in my life, that blacking out and trying to drink away my problems just make it all worse.

Bloated and hung over. Not too pretty.

Following my intuition is never wrong.
