Be Prepared To Lose It
The theme of my Tuesday Night Meeting is “Adventures In Sobriety”. At first, i assumed there was a specific definition to this and wondered what that was. Now i understand the signification changes not only according to the individual, but my own interpretation of it varies as well. i like it like that. It reminds me of life.
One Adventure sobriety has brought me is a plethora of opportunities that wine goggles prevented from seeing. Another Adventure i now have (perhaps unfortunately) is the energy to act on them.
“Unfortunately” because what with my fiction writing, freelance journalism, full time job and family…i want to do Everything now that i feel that i can.
The problem is, it’s easy to put any of these adventures in front of Recovery because Recovery brought them to me.
At times like these in my life, it’s critical to remember the Alcoholics Anonymous saying,
If you put something before your sobriety, be prepared to lose it.
