Celebrating an Average Day

I am having an average day, which is a good thing for me.  Not to be in the tar pit of depression nor the electric charge of hypomania is nice for a change.  For today I am level, even.  I haven't been able to say that in over two years!

The symptoms of mental illness have been indescribably difficult for me to experience on a daily basis for most of my life.  I know the current reprieve is temporary and that is ok.  Thanks to the "one day at a time" slogan of the program, I am better able to stay in the moment and enjoy the gifts of the present.  Thanks to the 12 Steps, I have a relationship with God that has brought me through the worst major depressive episode I have experienced yet.  And when this medication stops working after a while (like the others), I have faith that God will bring me through the pain once again.

As always, at least I didn't have to drink over it and that, my friends, is a miracle!


  1. Yes it is a miracle! I love how even my bad days just aren't as bad with this program :)

  2. I love ordinary. It seems so fleeting and rare.

  3. I am glad that things are good for today.


Thank you for sharing!
