When I was celebrating my first year of being sober at 22. I ran into my old boss. He couldn't believe how I was sounding and looking and was so blown away that he asked me if I would come back to work. Just the year before I had felt like a complete failure and here I was being told I was a miracle. I didn't end up taking the job back but just that moment made my day!
That was one of the many AHA moments I would begin to experience.
