Sometimes it's just oatmeal

It's just Monday morning, I'm just having oatmeal for breakfast, and I am just going to work. There is nothing going on (that I am aware of - yet - anyway).

There might well have been a sentence in the big book that said "lack of drama, that was our dilemma." But there isn't. I have learned that lack of drama is a good thing. It took a while though.

In my drinking days, I thought life ought to be like a soap opera - where something exciting happens every single day. I was good at creating that excitement. Which made for a pretty unhappy life.

It took a while to learn that sometimes there is nothing much going on. And I am good with that.

Sometimes it's just oatmeal.

Think I will stay sober today anyway (by the Grace of God), and I hope you all do too.

Great reminder, I still want life to be that way sometimes, though I know that drama free moments are the better ones

Sometimes I don't appreciate the oatmeal days in my life, and I really should. Thank you for reminding me.

I like oatmeal days, too. It took several years in the program before I felt comfortable with oatmeal.
