Feeling pleasurable satisfaction over an act, possession, quality, or relationship by which one measures one's stature or self-worth
Yesterday while talking with a coworker I was telling her how long it had been since I quit drinking. I said, "It's nearly 11 months since I have had an alcoholic drink of any kind. One more month and it will be a whole year! NEVER...NEVER in my entire life, did I ever think I would be saying that! NEVER!" My coworker looked at me with a big smile and said, "That is wonderful! You are pretty happy about this aren't you Lisa? And you don't even miss it, do you?" I looked at her and said, "No I really don't! And Yes, I am very happy....VERY HAPPY!"
I am very proud of my action and my move to become AF and to stick with it no matter the obstacles that have stood in my way.
Today I go out with my head held just a little bit higher....yet not too high. For I have a long way to go and each day is a struggle to reach this goal of mine. I will never lay down my guard, I will always be aware of this devil just waiting amongst the crowd to hop on my back when I am down.
Today I am proud!
