Dry December Day 11: Looking ahead. OK so on the face of it this has very little to do with Christmas, but that’s kind of the point - a sober life is never a life on hold. You might move forward faster sometimes and slower sometimes but you’re never going backwards, or round in circles, or stuck. Not even in December, which for me in former years was pretty much just given up to a month long party. One twelfth of every year (and the rest!) achieving a big fat nothing. Tonight I’m going to a presentation about a course I’ve applied to start in January. It could lead to amazing things work wise one day, I have so many ideas flying round my head at the moment and this could be a really big step towards making them a reality. Think what you could achieve in a sober 2019. Truly remarkable things, seriously.
