Everyday, I strive to have the attitude of making it “A New Day”, trying to improve on things that I couldn’t the previous day. Each day I try to be a little bit better. The New Year is going to be a big deal to me especially because I will have 18 months of sobriety. The longest I have ever had clean. This entire year of 2018 I accomplished things I thought would never be possible. I’ve stayed sober, I’m doing great in school, I regained a relationship with my family, and I found a new family here at SOCD. Without Salina’s method here at South Orange County Detox & Treatment, I do not believe any of these things would be accomplished. 2019 will be great as long as I keep using the tools I learned at South Orange County Detox and Treatment (SOCD).
The New Year is upon us and as I reflect over the last year I can take appreciation for the progress that I’ve made with myself and hold gratitude for those who have helped me in and throughout my journey of recovery. A new year is beginning and I plan to make the most of each day and continue to search for new ways to progress. Having to accept and let go of the past has been difficult but I find it has been more tolerable each day that passes. The New Year is a perfect time to start new for myself. As I proceed into this next year, it will be the first time I have a “choice” to pursue my goals and passions instead of submitting to a substance controlling me. Happy New Year!
