Working on eradicating this contraction from my vocabulary.
If I can get sober — and stay sober — there is no reason for anything else in my life to be a “can not.”
This is all fine and good, but simply writing about it won’t make possibilities materialize before my eyes.
Work is required. We want everything “NOW,” same as we did when we were drinking. The landscape may be tough to navigate because truly in a privileged life (which I would absolutely consider mine to be), so much is indeed available ‘right now.’
That which is truly worthwhile and fulfilling is attained through a careful study in patient ambition and steely determination.
It is possible. The potential is there. There is always room for improvement.
Ya gotta put yer dues in though. Do that work, and do it for yourself — that, I think, is the path to a fulfilled life. And that, I can abide.
