Love life

Good afternoon! My name is Lauren, and I’m a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. One thing I struggle with in life is balance. When I was drinking and using, it was way out of control. I am a person of extremes. It is all or nothing, and it’s usually all. Once I got sober I had to learn to deal with life and learn how to balance it. Once I got sober, I wanted to get a better job and make more money. Well, that’s not a good priority. Balance is paying attention to the things that matter most at the time that they matter most. I’m at the point in my life where my kids and family matter most, so I realize that’s what I need to paymore attention to. Right before I took the job I currently have I could have taken a job making twice what I make now, but we would have had to move and training would have been away from my family for 3 months, and that’s just not what I needed at that time in my life. That’s not what my kids needed. And I love the job that I have now. I struggle with balance on a daily basis, so I continually pray about it. Lord help me. Sometimes I don’t think I’m where I need to be, but I’m exactly where I should to be. That’s all I have for today. Have a great one!
