Just Sayin’: Recovery And Aging

Here’s the irony of aging in recovery for me:  5 years ago I was in great physical condition, but my spirit was ugly and decrepit.  Today, I’m more aged on the outside, but a lot more beautiful and younger on the inside.  I’ll take that trade.

Just Sayin’: It Staggers Me
