Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. I've come to the conclusion, not me carrying around guilt and shame for my past won't get me anywhere. If I do something, that the next day I feel bad for, or guilty, then I probably shouldn't be doing it. If I have to hide something from someone, I probably shouldn't be doing it. Both of those things I did, when I was drinking. Yes, I felt guilty, and I needed to, I was wrong. But now, I have to get on with my life and go forward. But live in the now, I am not promised tomorrow. I should plan like I am going to live forever, but live like I will die the next. I also don't need to worry about the future. God has a plan for my life, and that's how it is. I guess I finally realized I'm just along for the ride. I am now just going with the flow. But I do have the choice to make decisions. God does give me choices that I am trusted to make the right one. Each new day is another chance to change your life. So if you fell down yesterday, get back up. Today is a new day. Leave the past in the past, and look up and go forward. God has forgiven me, but I still need to make the right choices. These choices affect not only myself, but my family. That's all I got for today Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
