Happy New Year

Posted by George Williams on Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

Happy New Year everyone. I’ve always enjoyed looking back on the year, even when it hasn’t been so good. At least it made me aware of the changes I needed to make. Nowadays I enjoy the feeling of being on a journey of self discovery in recovery, “in search of me”.

I still get tough days which are nothing to do with my old habits, they’re just life really. Days when I’m frustrated, confused, or maybe not so full of life. I suppose thats called being human and although I hate myself for feeling like that I understand more and more how and why. I don’t reach for a drink or anything else and what I can’t work out, I talk about.

I’m a very complicated person trying to keep it all simple but there is a big world out there and I want to live in it and not be afraid.

New Year is a great time to say sorry if you need too and let those who really matter know how much you care. Happy New Year everyone, let it be the start of the rest of your life !!
