There is only one, true gift to give myself, and that is being sober. Without that I really have nothing. It is only with this gift that I can find joy in life.
I can go to yoga, go for a walk, and take pictures of the snow-covered park.
I can sit in my beautiful city, drinking coffee at a fun coffee shop, and write on my laptop.
I can drive safely home, read a book, drink tea.
I can kiss my Loved One hello, call a friend, eat a good dinner. I can watch TV, play games on my phone, and relax.
These simple joys make up life. I love this gift.
