Happiness is self love. It’s gratitude. It’s helping others. It’s finding beauty in the simple things you encounter and believing that your future is limitless. It’s the kindness you extend to strangers without hesitation. It’s smiling for no reason. It’s within YOU and In every other way, it is YOU. ❤️
12 days to go until I’ve officially been sober for 2 years. I hadn’t had any consecutive clean time since I was 11 years old, so by the grace of God I’m here now. Only he and I know how really lucky I am to still be walking this earth - happily might I add.
I didn’t believe life would ever be fun again when I first got sober. I thought all I had to look forward to was a life of boredom and isolation from the things/people I once loved most. I was so wrong. Yes, it’s so challenging. The hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life, that’s for sure. Yet the results are fucking fantastic.
I’m truly happy for the first time in my life. I used to think I was happy at times, but those were just borrowed moments that didn’t truly belong to me. Induced by whatever substance I was feeling at the time. To know true happiness you have to first know yourself.
