I don’t want this post to sound like I am bitching about my current situation, there are just certain things about my life that I wish to share. First I am so very grateful for the loving and caring family that I have been blessed with. Second, I am happy to be alive. That was not always guaranteed with my previous lifestyle. Third I am grateful to be healthy and sober, today I can see things much clearer than I would have in the past. Now it’s only a few more months until I get to go to Dubai. I need to just stay focused on my recovery and let things happen as they will. I know that will be hard because I’m a control freak but anything worthwhile takes some major effort.
