12. Predictable, Manageable, Acceptable
“Not sure how drinking can be called a relationship,” Brat Boy said, “but how is your life different?”
I was almost twelve years sober when Brat Boy was born. He had no way of knowing what my life was like right before I quit drinking.
I said, “Life is somewhat predictable, in a good way. I’ve gotten into a healthy routine. It’s mostly manageable because I’m clear-headed and not doing things to make it unmanageable. And though I’m sometimes slow to accept things that can’t be changed, once I do, it’s almost entirely acceptable.”
Today I will be grateful life can be somewhat predictable, mostly manageable, and almost entirely acceptable.
