Prior to getting sober, I always thought one’s successes or failures were measured in material items. I am happy to report that I was completely and utterly wrong! Material items do nothing when it comes to self worth. Yes, it feels good to wear something nice and live in a nice house, but it won’t make you happy!
Happiness, serenity, joy, and peace of mind are all internal, spiritual jobs that take time and energy to achieve. They are a daily job, something that needs to be nourished and cared for all of the time.
I can say this for sure, prior to getting sober; I hated looking in the mirror. Today, I don’t hate what is looking back at me. In fact, I love myself! That is something that I never thought would happen!
