BACK IN THE SWIRL, Excerpt

Standard

… – TAKE BABY STEPS, DON’T BEAT YOURSELF UP ABOUT ALL THE THINGS YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO DO AT THIS TIME. YOU ARE FOCUSED ON RECOVERING YOURSELF.IF YOU ONLY MANAGED TO TAKE A WALK OUT OF THE HOUSE FOR TEN SOLID MINUTES INSTEAD OF HALF AN HOUR APPLAUD YOURSELF. IF ANY GIVEN DAY, YOU ONLY MANAGE TO DO THE LAUNDRY, FOLD OUT THE CLOTHES AND PREPARE PEANUT BUTTER SANDWICHES FOR YOUR KIDS, IT’S OKAY. YOU HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY COMMITTED TO TAKE YOUR MEDS? GIVE YOURSELF A REWARD. YOU ARE CHECKING INTO THAT REHAB FACILITY YOU HAVE ALWAYS THOUGHT YOU DIDN’T NEED IT BECAUSE YOU COULD CONTROL YOUR ADDICTIONS? Give yourself an outstanding ovation. Focus on your achievements no matter how little they may seem. Cast out all negative thoughts. Congratulate yourself and celebrate your accomplishments! You deserve it !
