Tuesday, we had a meeting with financial aid at the college. The counselor was telling us to apply for these scholarships. I have been diligent with applying, and I almost said something out of anger. I have not received a dime just of yet with this school, but at a another school, I almost obtained everything I applied for and I am grateful. Since having back surgery and not being able to do the work I used to, sometimes it just hurts. Something said not too a word, I let it go and finished class.
On yesterday, I received a email that I got the big scholarship that I applied for. Another email came and i have been accepted in the program of my first choice. Since being sober and working on the additional flaws of my character, life is coming together finally. This has is a journey that is full of rewards if I just keep doing the right thing. I need to stay consistent with not being in control, sit in the back seat, and let uber drive. Sobriety on the last fall several years ago exposed me to me and how I need to just follow until the time comes to lead again. I must say that I am better off in the back seat.
In conclusion, I am not bragging, I am just giving thanks to making a choice to turn my life around and become someone that the universe wants me to be in the greater society as a citizen.
This is unheard of for the people who know me!
I don't know if anyone had seen this, but it's an article from the New York Times.https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/07/well/family/wine-moms-drinking-alcohol-sober-parenting.htmlI don't know if other parents in recovery can relate, but I know I can. I've definitely seen how prevelant "wine mom culture" is raising my two youngest today. When I was raising my son 15-20 years ago, I don't remember it...
