Groundhog Day vs. Insanity

FullSizeRender

Every day the same thing over and over again….  Isn’t that how we define insanity?

I call it Groundhog  Day!

Here is my Groundhog Day:

Wake up.

Kiss my husband and my puppy.

Turn the heater up.

Make COFFEE!

Do dishes from the night before….

Feed puppy.

Pack lunch for husband.

Sit-ups!

Watch husband eat breakfast (the same thing EVERY day!).

Eat.

Work.

Gym.

Meeting.

Grocery store.

Work.

Eat.

Play with puppy.

Work.

Play with puppy.

Cook supper.

Eat.

Work.

Husband home and watch him eat…..

Bed.

Sleep.

Repeat.

My days are filled with slight variations of the same thing, however, this is not the insanity that I used to know….  

The insanity that I used to know was doing the same thing over and over again hoping, praying for a different outcome.   My obsession was to drink like a normal person, still function and behave like a respectable woman……

That NEVER happened….

Whether it be alcohol, drugs, or food, those of us in recovery remember that insanity…

That HELL day in and day out….  I never want to go back.

….Today, I just want to live happy.  That is it…  I just want to live happy…..

I am grateful for my Groundhog Day.
