When we get sober, we begin to experience the fullness of life again. We’ve gained our full potential back – and then some. What was once a glum existence imprisoned by drugs and alcohol, is now a second chance at life to live to the fullest. For so long, most of us made sweet promises, resolutions, and commitments to put the drink down or follow through with certain things we wanted to do. Now, with the world at our fingertips, the possibilities are endless, and anything is achievable – as long as we’re sober.
Recovery can be difficult, and some of these things can take awhile to attain – but thank God for bucket lists. No matter what, our recovery should come first, however, each of us should dare to dream, set goals, and achieve them. Many of us often got out of this habit of dreaming – after all none of our dreams came to fruition due to our using. We’ve either conditioned ourselves that we are failures, or have a fear of success. What would we do with success? Do we deserve it? We’ve been given a second chance. Of course we do.
Life is meant to be lived. Break the status quo. Dream, achieve, create, and succeed.
Here’s a list of 10 things every sober person should add to their bucket list.
