A moment like this is one of the true gifts of sobriety. This is a picture of my daughter, who is about to sing in the studio for the first time ever on her band’s original song. And because of all the people that taught me how to put the plug in the jug and live life on life‘s terms, I get to be present to see and feel her happiness, excitement, and joy. And it is lighting up the room. Coming from the darkness that I lived in a different life long ago, I am more grateful than words could ever express to anyone.This is a big part of my why.
