I was sitting here thinking about my life in the here and now. Taking an inventory and I must admit that I am truly grateful for where I am, and how far I have come in 15 months. I have been working on becoming a better person and I have made some progress.
I’ve been working on changing my attitude. I have had a temper for as long as I can remember. It has caused me some pain in the past and in my life it has been the definition of insanity. Lately as a result of doing some work in that area I have been able to think before I act or open my mouth with some practice.
I’m not saying that I haven’t had my days. Days when I just want to slap the sh*t out of someone because I do, boy do I. But the difference is today consequential thinking kicks in. I’ve noticed that If I just take a second or 2 to wait and not react my thinking will shift from KAPOW to WOOSAAA.
It feels good not to act a fool and be the angry, grumpy and disgruntled person that I used to be. Growing up and becoming responsible for my actions is new for this recovering addict. Im loving the new me. Change has finally come and I welcome it with open arms.
I AM A WORK IN PROGRESS. MAKING PROGRESS.
Peace and Blessings
