Take One Penquin Step at a Time

I know how overwhelming life can get when you're trying to change something in your life, such as quitting an addiction. If it's drinking you're quitting you may be thinking ahead of all the things you will probably have to do: not see some friends so much or completely let them go from your life, go to A.A. meetings or do something else productive to fill up the time you used to spend drinking, taking up new hobbies, reading books. Whatever it is, yes, it can be overwhelming.

My suggestion is to just do one thing today...take a penguin step. If you know all you are asking of yourself today is to change one thing, then it's doable isn't it? You can do it today---change one thing. Tomorrow take another penguin step and do something else that supports your quitting drinking.

Penguin steps, penguin steps, ahhhhh penguin steps......

Hey Miss LJA, you changed the name of your blog! I like it!

I sent someone to your blog today who's also a writer and also a recovering addict. Maybe you two will have something to talk about!
