I am my best when I...
I wanted to start a thread dedicated to just us and maybe we can spread this around :)  This is a cross-post that I also posted in Living with an Alcoholic.

When we live with an alcoholic or an addict so much of our lives and esteem revolve around addiction.  I want us to take a moment and focus on ourselves and our own goals and complete this sentence:

I am my best when I...

lol dominosarah yes it does seem easier at times to take someone else's inventory.

I am my best when I focus on my family and myself as the priority.  Bills, work, and material items come and go and the real investment I have is with the time I spend with my loved ones.

I am best at self-loathing, self-doubt and self-gratification...I KID

I am best at what I do, help others (teach Highschool, parent a child) and dole out humurous, raunchy advice to those trying to recover from drug addiction

Definitely good things to mention if even a joke ;)  It's always important for me to remember where I came from, to remember what I felt, and to remain forever humble for the experience.  We have these life experiences for reasons besides just our own ego.

So I will add... I am my best when I maintain humility.

Thanks for this post :)  Our kids really do know the difference when we are having an off day or are not entirely "present" with them.  I have recently quit drinking coffee and I am able to sit down and spend even more time with them.  Such a small thing that I would never think would have an impact, but it does.

So I am my best when I am calm, relaxed, and attentive.
