|Our First Bike Ride|
Thank you for your concern about my mom and myself!
And today, I am ready to make a shift in my thinking.
I am tired of my poor me, missing out thoughts that sometimes enter my head.
I don’t get these thoughts often anymore, but when I do, I am not happy.
I want to take lessons from the sober people who are almost giddy they stopped.
I find these people in the blogging world, as well as in AA.

And so, right at this minute, I refuse to let those thoughts enter my head.
I am so thankful I heeded the call to stop drinking.
I was in denial for so long.
It takes a lot of courage to stop drinking.
To be totally honest and say, this has to stop.
And then, it takes a big shift in thinking, that says, I am glad I stopped.
I am glad I don’t have to worry about the things that might or would have happened if I kept drinking.
I am glad for all the good things that I have because I stopped.
And to be glad in all situations, even a party where all your close friends are still drinking.
I want to be a role model that says, look here…I can be sober and be happy!
I don’t need to be all morose.
It’s only alcohol.
It’s time for me to grow up a little more.
There will be times to practice my new way of thinking, very soon.
I will be attending a family wedding, as well as going to small dinner parties.
And I want to go with a message of I am happy sober.
Giving people I love hugs and kisses.
With Much Love,
On Day 639,
