Staying sober will not guarantee that you will always remember where you parked your car.

Staying sober does guarantee that you won't blow it WAY OUT OF PROPORTION or go into an endless pity party or panic or punch whoever is with you or whatever other drunken way you used to react to life's little challenges. Staying sober gives us perspective and even the ability to laugh with (not at) ourselves. 


Today I will remember to laugh, not cry, when I make a mistake. I will remember I'm human and give myself a break and not blow things out of proportion.
