Set On High
The most irritating thing about me? Hmm, there are so many…
i guess i’d have to say my good mood.
One thing i’m starting to recall in my sobriety is that i’m naturally happy. It was easy to forget because during the last few months of my drinking, i woke up sad and got progressively worse as the day wore on. i had no energy and each early afternoon saw me crash and burn. i was plagued by paralyzing fear.
Now, mornings start off well and get better. i wake up with faith in the day and it usually doesn’t disappoint. Sure, some days are harder than others but even during the roughest ones, i have an optimism that it will get better. And then it does.
BTW, you know how annoying young love is when you’re not the one in it? My new found love of life really bugs the crap out of others!
