I thought I’d share an experience in recovery. I am on vacation in my favorite place on the planet, Maine… The mountains and lakes. Fishing, hiking, cycling. It’s all awesome. 🙂
While out on my canoe, for hours, fishing, paddling around I found myself in a long involved daydream, or pipe dream. It was fun. Details, events, stuff like that… Knowing the whole time that it was just what it was, dreaming…
I realized, wow, I hadn’t been having these through my active drinking using years, the downward spiral… Just worry, or…. Nothing.
I am not suggesting that it is healthy to live in our heads… On the other hand, there is nothing wrong with having dreams….
