Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. I only have one life so why should I waste it being miserable. God has blessed me with so much. I should not take anything for granted. Each moment I have with my husband, my children, my parents, is a gift. I need to cherish it. Life is so fragile and can be taken at any time. I don't want to have regrets. I need to make the most out of every day. Happiness is appreciating what you have not getting what you want. Each day, so far, I am blessed to wake up and be sober, have a loving husband, two beautiful children, amazing parents that are still living, three brothers that care about me, in-laws that are there for me, other friends and family that has stuck by my side, new friends I have made in sobriety, a good job, a car, a house, a God that has forgiven me and continues to do so on a daily basis. What more could I ask for? I am happy. I just need to do this every day and I can be happy :) Happiness is a journey, not a destination. That's all I have for today. Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
