I spent the last 15 minutes of last year practicing what my sponsor calls “quiet time”. It’s essentially a meditation where you write down everything that comes to mind for about 5-10 minutes. Afterwards, you look at everything you wrote and try to figure out where your Higher Power was speaking to you.
I found out that I’m looking forward to 2017 a lot more than I’m looking back at 2016. One great thing I have though is a sobriety date in 2016, and numerically speaking, I just celebrated a birthday.
2016 tested me. It taught me. It tore me down and it built me up.
But I just blew out the candles, and the New Year feels better than ever.
