I found this cool App that speaks to me – I love it because everytime I open it up it gives me a new quote and you can add whatever ‘addiction’ you want to it. My plan for steady ‘sober time’ for an extended period of time (not putting a specific number of days that this extended period will cover just yet) will begin Monday September 5th … and from now to then – my plan is to be mindful of my daily practices. Focusing on self-care and self-love.
One day at a time … and today is going to be an AF day for me!
I’m trying to NOT overwhelm myself with demands. With the upcoming transition I’m going through – my entire LIFE is being changed and the anxieties leading up to that are surfacing in many ways. I am trying to cope in healthy ways (this morning’s workout felt great – so amazing in how it sets the tone for the day for me). My daughter’s moods and reactions to this transition are not easy to take – but this too I must take in stride and recognize that it’s coming from a 15 year old who thinks this is the end of the world… while it may in fact be a very positive shift for her as well.
Fourteen years of living on my own for me and moving in with a partner – HUGE leap for me but not one I have taken lightly… We have been seeing each other almost 2 years and it’s the next logical step.
I think that once the move is done, once the summer socials are done – including the celebration at the last festival where I’ll celebrate my 50th – I’ll be ready to set myself up with this new life … and get ‘back to school’ on getting back to living life FULLY – appreciating the new, including a new habit of MORE Sober Time!
