Happy New Year to all! I’m so grateful for everyone who reads this blog. You have no idea how much I reveal here that I tell no one else. It is my safest outlet.
Day 527 of sobriety finds me feeling so proud that I made it through a year like 2018 without taking a drink. It’s a freaking miracle! The 24/7 anxiety fueled news cycle, leaving my full time job, being “home” with my kids, losing some close friends, and having a teen girl start high school (among other things) all made for an incredibly stress-filled 365 days. Make that 365 reasons that I used to drink. I am filled with an unusual mix of gratitude, humility and pride today.
My wish for 2019 is the same for me as it is for all of you: I wish you happiness, health, kindness, love and adventure. For any of you in recovery, I wish you continued (or revisited) sobriety.
Until next time…
