Last week was a time of celebrations.
|My Cute Neighbor
It was my birthday, and I also celebrated 23 months sober!
My birthday was filled with golf with a friend, coffee dates, a dinner date, and lots of love.
It was perfect.
I also did a dog walking for a neighbor’s dog!
I loved that!
He’s a cutie pie!
Flowers are filling my life right now.
Hubs and I bought a beautiful planter, and I put vincas in it.
I also bought myself some yellow roses for inside the house, and I think that will be a weekly treat from now on.
I continue to work on my mind-set and self talk.
If I want the good things to continue in my life, I have to go get them.
I tend to discount the positives of doing something, and focus on the negatives.
I love to go a particular yoga class on Saturday morning, but when it comes around, I often talk myself out of it, saying, “It’s too early, and I can’t do it.”
But when I go, I love it!
I see some wonderful yoga buddies, and my body feels good afterwards!
I can talk myself out of anything, because my first default thinking is, “It’s too hard!”
I have been putting off writing this post, because I couldn’t think of something to say, so today, after yoga, I just decided I would start typing.
For those of you who are newer to my blog, I added a feature post that tells you why I stopped drinking. (It’s on the right side of my blog page.)
I continue to get support from my yoga buddies and teachers, family, friends, and AA buddies.
I think it’s important to celebrate this accomplishment.
Whether it’s 1 day or 700 days, it’s something to be proud of.
Every day I choose to stay sober, means I am choosing life.
It means I am choosing to make the world around me a little bit better.
It means big smiles from my cute hubs.
It means I am free.
With Flowers and a Fur Friend,
On Day 702,
