I did this a few years ago, I set myself a target to write every day for an entire year. I achieved that.
In 2021 I am doing that again for an entirely different reason. This year I want to write every day for a year to help me stay sober
I’m not an alcoholic. No I addicted to lust and no longer want to be. I watched porn for a decent amount of my life and I no longer want to. I’ve thankfully stopped doing that since the last quarter of last year and I want to stay sober all of this year.
This year I want to commit myself to the inner work necessary to living the life of my dreams.
This year I want to embrace my fears and be okay with rejection.
This year I choose to choose myself and bet on myself instead of anything or anybody else.
To do that, the first place to start is clarity. Clarity in what things I can change and what things I can’t.
There would be no point in fighting hard to change anything about me or my life if those things are essentially unchangeable.
Thankfully I can change my addictions, I can let them go and move on. That’s an empowering thing to know.
To say 2020 was a difficult year would be a slap in the face of an understatement to the world and all that we collectively went through. The effects and impact of last year will linger for many years to come.
But this is a new year and with a new year always comes a new hope. Hope that with the new year will be new opportunities, open doors, a fresh start and hopefully a fresh perspective.
This is my day one. I’m grateful for it and I pray I make it to the end of this year having become a much better man and person.
