‘A good day does not have to be the “calm before the storm.” That’s an old way of thinking we learned in dysfunctional systems. In recovery, a good day or a good feeling doesn’t mean we’re in denial. We don’t have to wreck our good times by obsessively searching for or creating a problem.’ From: “The Language of Letting Go”
I used I always think his way. If I was in a good mood I would literally ask myself, “What is wrong?” Today, I enjoy when I feel good and I don’t question it. I accept it, just like I accept when I have a bad day (but also I realize that the bad day will pass, as opposed to believing life will be bad FOREVERRRRR).
The more sanity I get and the stronger my relationship with God is, the more serenity I experience. Serenity leaves me having a lot more good days in my life and sometimes it seems unreal.
Another gift of all this is that now I’m given opportunities to teach other women how to experience serenity and have a relationship with themselves. It is a beautiful life-giving cycle. I am familiar with cycles- of having high highs, and really low lows.
