Here I am at ANOTHER favorite coffee shop!
I have too many to count!
When I got here, I saw 4 people I know but haven’t seen in a long time! It was a joy to just give them a hug and exchange a few words, and know they are all well!
I had some thoughts about not drinking.
The first is, I am glad I am not drinking today.
That is all I can handle.
I don’t have many drinking thoughts anymore, and if I do, I can let them go very quickly.
Funny though, I went to a movie and everyone in the movie was drinking all the time. Drove me nuts!
I wondered why I noticed that. My hubby didn’t.
So, drinking is still a little in my mind.
I’m just glad it hasn’t taken over!
I need all the brain cells I have left!
A support system is so important for me. I really do need good people in my life.
I am so lucky I have them. To all of you, my friends, family, blogger friends, AA friends, WFS friends, and yoga buddies.
I thank you.
Today is Day One of my new goal plan!
I have decided to limit my FB checks to 4 times a day.
Sounds like a lot, but that’s way less than I was doing!
I might have to get rid of Candy Crush Soda, but NOT YET!
I am going to try to limit playing that game to 4 times a day, and when I run out of free lives, I quit. (So keep sending me lives!)
HERE’S THE BEST!!
I signed up for a beginner drawing class!!
I’m not a very good drawer, but this is about me finding me.
I can’t find me if I don’t do anything!
This makes me feel good because I lost the ability to “hear” my guitar and voice when I got my implant. That has been a big part of my depression, as I was writing songs too.
But being creative can take many forms.
Blogging, taking photos when I am walking and sharing on FB, and even yoga, help me feel creative.
So, I am ready.
I am ready to keep healing.
I am ready to love my new life.
I am ready to sing a new song.
