Good morning! My name is Lauren & I'm a recovering alcoholic/addict. It's a fantastically dreary day today again, as it has been all week. I'm patiently waiting for the sun to come back out. I say a quote today that I liked. To err is human, but when the eraser wears out ahead of the pencil, you’re overdoing it.
It is so true. We all make mistakes, we are human. But when we continue to make the same mistakes over and over and over again, there is a problem. We need to learn from our mistakes. We need to own them. With that, also, we are not perfect. We will still make them, and "bad" things still might happen to us, losing a job or someone we love. Sobriety doesn't make life perfect, but it does make it better than what it was. We will be better to deal with these issues, called life. We are capable of great things. We can be honest and caring if we choose to be. That's all for today! Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
