My Resolutions Have a Super Short Shelf Life

Easy Does It — But Do it!

My New Year’s resolutions only have a twenty-four hour shelf life – hey, some of them go from minute-to minute! No matter how sensible or beneficial they are, like not drinking, exercising, curbing candy, cutting back coffee, or kicking over the pity pot, I can’t make any resolutions long-term.

My sponsor suggested this was the way to go. Accepting this has been like breathing in the glory of a sunny Maine morning.

Life is like an ice-cream cone; you have to lick it one day at a time. ~ Charles M. Schultz

Not drinking; not projecting; not sulking, or judging are things I can do for a day. And a friend shared a meme with so many do’s – each equally possible on a daily basis, even though it’s offered for a new year.

Not anticipating failure, I am preaching to myself a great and necessary truth: God not only allows U-Turns, He enables them!

God Bless you gentle reader as we finish the first day of a new year – or the first day of sober living. You might like ~Taking What I Need

Love in Christ,

Sober and Grateful
