SoberDay 746

Okay, so if you have been a regular follower of mine for some time, you will know that I count every day of sobriety and indeed passing every week, you will also know that I hold my own little celebrations at significant milestone, 1 year, 2 years, 500 days, 600 days, etc, etc.  If you’re new to this site, then okay I can be a little weird from time to time also!

So that fact that today is SoberDay 746 doesn’t really seem that significant, but I’ve looked at the days ahead and I’m being to see something more than coincidence with my date of Sobriety, the 29th March 2012, just a normal Thursday, nothing special, just another day.

Then last year my one year anniversary just so happened to fall on a Friday, Good Friday, coincidence? Maybe! I thought so at the time anyway.  But it was a great day and a great way to celebrate.

But then earlier today, I worked out that my 750th SoberDay would fall on this coming Friday, Good Friday, another coincidence?  Maybe, but then again my 1000th SoberDay will fall on Christmas Eve, now I’m being to think differently.

So was Thursday 29th March 2012, just a normal day, when a troubled soul, just randomly decided to give up an addiction that had wrecked his life?

I’m beginning to think not, it wasn’t just a random day at all!

 So Friday will be a great day of celebration, once again in more than just one way and I for one can’t wait!

BLINK by REVIVE
Teach me to number my days 
And count every moment before it slips away 
Take in all the colors before they fade to gray 
I don’t want to miss even just a second more of this 

It happens in a blink 
It happens in a flash 
It happens in the time it took to look back 
I try to hold on tight, but there’s no stopping time 
What is it I’ve done with my life 
It happens in a blink (x2)

When it’s all said and done
No one remembers how far we have run
The only thing that matters is how we have loved
I don’t want to miss even just a second more of this

It happens in a blink 
It happens in a flash 
It happens in the time it took to look back 
I try to hold on tight, but there’s no stopping time 
What is it I’ve done with my life 
It happens in a blink (x4)

Slow down, slow down 
Before today becomes our yesterday 
Slow down, slow down 
Before you turn around and it’s too late 

It happens in a blink 
it happens in a flash 
it happens in the time it took to look back 
I try to hold on tight but there’s no stopping time 
What is it I’ve done with my life 
It happens in a blink

It happens in a blink 
it happens in a flash 
it happens in the time it took to look back 
I try to hold on tight but there’s no stopping time 
What is it I’ve done with my life 
It happens in a blink
It happens in a blink 
It happens in a blink 
It happens in a blink
