Day 542 Clean & Sober–Progress, Not Perfection

Good morning! My name is Lauren, and I’m a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. You have heard it before, “Progress, not perfection.” That’s all it is. I just need to be better than I was yesterday. I can strive all I want be perfect but never will be, but it to be better every day is a good goal to have. Last night at a meeting someone said, she was just focusing on not drinking TODAY, not tomorrow, not next week, but today. That’s progress. Don’t worry about the future, worry about today, right now. Let’s take life one day at a time. And we may stumble and fall along the way, but that doesn’t mean we have to drink or use over it. Keep heading in the right direction, keep moving forward. Once again, progress, not perfection. We can do it…together. That’s all I got for today! Have a great one!
