My life has been quite a journey so far and things have turned out better in my sobriety than I ever thought they would. As a result, Living In The Moment and not worrying about the future is easier for me.
Of course there are times when I do worry, especially when there’s uncertainty involved. I find it’s easy to be positive in life when things are going good and I have no worries, but trying to remain positive when I have doubts about my future can be hard at times.
Despite the fact that doubt can still be a part of my journey, whenever I experience fears and uncertainty about my future today, I remind myself about my past. Although there were times when things looked hopeless and I wasn’t sure why I was going through something, an answer would always come. And no matter how afraid I felt at the time, I always grew stronger as a result.
I do something else that has never failed to help me get through some of the toughest times in my sobriety. I use the tools that I believe we all possess to help us stop worrying and start living in the moment again. I talk to someone about my fears and insecurities. Try to find hope in any situation. And I tell myself that everything will be all right. I also talk to whatever god there may be and ask for guidance and reassurance.
One other thing I do is read different books. Some are of the self-help variety, others are spiritual or new age, and a few are religious, and I find that this comforts me and encourages me to believe everything will be all right
It may be hard to remain positive when we have doubts about our future, but if we persistently do the things I talked about here, we can find strength to keep moving forward in our journeys. We will also find it easier to live in the moment. Not worry so much about the future. And as I’m starting to do. Believe our life can only get better along the way.
