Living the Dream
There are times when people ask “how are you doing” and often I respond by saying “living the dream”. Living the dream is all about how you view your priorities and values. Perception is a huge part of my philosophy of ‘living the dream”. I consider my dream to be living with a happy / healthy family, sober / in active recovery, having a successful career and being there for family / friends. Wealth and fortune used to be part of my dream and would it be nice to have more money, of course, but I have put less of a value on that and more of a value on how I am providing for my family emotionally, financially and physically. When I was a kid, I envisioned having a wife, kids, having a career and good health for all. Although I face addiction and bipolar disorder, I can positively say that I am still a success and living the dream. My actions have been aligned with my dream for the last four years since I became sober / in active recovery again. I truly love living my life as a recovering alcoholic, as it has brought me more insight to my true self and evaluating myself often and frequently.
