This is a new feature of 2 Sober Chicks called a "Shot Glass of Recovery"! Why you ask? Because Julie and Lisa are having serious scheduling conflicts and we are having serious withdrawal from the show! So we thought these little soundbites might give you a daily dose of an Attitude of Gratitude until they can next record a longer segment. That's an idea I can raise a glass to...a non-alcoholic glass!
One of my favourite things about doing this podcast with Julie has always been our relationship and how we navigate it. Julie had this brave idea to share a recent bump in the road of our friendship, one that admittedly almost tore us apart. However, we really do try to live the 12 steps in ALL OUR AFFAIRS, we don't take that phrase lightly.
In this podcast Julie and Lisa share some wisdom from author Mark Manson. Mark Manson wrote "The subtle art of not giving a fuck", definately something people in recovery could benefit reading. 6 Toxic relationship habits worth breaking. Do you recognize any of these in your relationships, past or present? How have your relationships improved in sobriety?
Have you ever taken something small and justified it as ok? Like a dozen sugar packets at starbucks because "hey they charge me 5$ for a coffee I'm entitled to take extra sugar packets to stock my cupboard!" Anyway you slice it, taking something that isn't yours is stealing. Have your morals changed for the better since getting sober?
