Day 94 - The Impossible

May 11, 2016
Day 94

I heard this quote today by the comedienne Tina Fey and it reminded me of drinking and sobriety.  (I am concerned that every "quote" I come across I can somehow relate to either drinking or sobriety!  I think I might need to work on changing that!)

You go through big
chunks of time where you're 
just thinking,
-----------OH THIS IS-----------
And then you just keep going
and keep going, and you sort
of do the impossible.

That is me, and so many of us.  Drinking for years and trying to quit many, many times but not being successful because we thought it was too hard or impossible!  But, then, one day, after one of our many attempts at putting down the bottle, we succeed!  We start to accomplish the impossible!  

If you are just starting out on your journey, keep going and going and going.  No matter how many times it takes.  Eventually, you will sort it out.  And if that means you need help to do so, get it!  That is the part of "keep going."  You have to sometimes try different avenues.  Ask for help.  Go to a recovery program.  Blog.  Do whatever it is you need to do to keep going so you get to the other side of the Impossible!!!  And, you may have to do it all!

And for those that are well on their way to the other side of Impossible, keep doing what you are doing.  And, if you get stuck, ask for help.  You are already well on your way!  Keep the momentum yourself that you can overcome the impossible!  (I am going to hold onto this as I have no bigger critic of myself than me!)  And, please share your success stories with those that are struggling.  While misery does love company, so does happiness!  

Hoping you keep going and going!

Sober at 53

    It's little bitty steps, and then we look back and see how far we've come!
