How much have I evened out in the last few months?

I can now do sudoku puzzles.

Even when I tried a year ago I would become overwhelmed with anxiety just trying.

In the past day I’ve completed five.

That’s not five without mistakes. Obviously. I’m not a super genius. They also weren’t even medium grade puzzle levels. But I finished them.

That’s something being back in active recovery has helped me with. Having a community and sponsor regularly saying, “It’s okay if you’re not doing it perfectly. You’re doing it. You’re not drinking. You’re not using. [Drugs weren’t part of my addiction, but I’m not doing them now.] You’re showing up. That’s half the battle.”

These are reminders I have to give myself. It’s a challenge to not drink, but at least I’m not.

Today I’m grateful for that.
