How do you like your space? Beautifully cluttered and eclectic or minimalist and clutter free?
I seem to swing like a pendulum between the two and I realise that I do this in many areas of my life - not least of which is alcohol!
I've spent years drinking and not drinking - I hate to think how much of my life has been taken up by booze!! Most recently I stopped drinking for 8 months and I loved it - it wasn't always easy but not drinking is right for me. And then I had a drink - at lunch with my Mum! No big deal but of course it is - it's the slow seep back to befriending a glass of vino as a confidante, a trusted ally, a source of love and affection! And for me - this is no good.
It takes me away from the real joy of life, it cuts me off from my emotional competence, it stems the flow of my creativity and gives me false beliefs and dashes my dreams!
I haven't hit rock bottom or done anything outrageous but this isn't who i'm here to be!
I now understand that my commitment to sobriety is the highest priority for honouring myself. This time I need accountability on a wider scale - I need to show up for myself each day. I'm creating my sobriety journal and holding myself to account each day - to reflect, to review, to honour my soul, to acknowledge the difficulties, to find joy in my life and to celebrate each sober day!
I'm not sure how to share this or why I want to but I got clear guidance this morning to be open, honest and visible is my quest for a joyful sober life!
So, here goes - I'm daring myself to flourish in sobriety and to have the courage to share it with you.
I would love your ideas, feedback or encouragement!
With love and gratitude xx (#📷 @hippiespirits via @latermedia )
"Life is a gift..." that's what my tea bag said this morning, and I agree. I love starting the morning with hot tea and a drop of lemon oil (I save coffee for mornings with husband and sharing with friends). I start my diffuser and have a slow breakfast with my kids... I love mornings and try to make them happy! Just because I don't complain on social media, doesn't mean that my life isn't crazy... my husband is only home 15 days a month, so believe me, it's crazy! And my closest and best friends see my crazy. If you stop by, you'll see it too... you'll see my messes and you'll see me lose my temper. BUT, that isn't what I choose to focus on. I choose to focus on the light, the goodness, the positive little moments that bring me joy. Each night before bed, I write down everything I am thakful for, and sometimes, I am serioulsy so thankful to have survived another 48 hour shift with my husband away on duty, while I rock this parenting gig solo! But mostly, I am thankful to be a mom. It is the hardest and most beautiful thing I have ever experienced. And even on my worst day, I would never trade this life of mine, it IS a gift! I try to be real and transparent with everyone, and I know that it is easy to show our best face on social media, so rest assured, my life isn't perfect, I just choose to focus on the good. Because if we seek goodness, we find it! We have the ability to see beauty everywhere... just look for the light! .
Ok, I've never wanted to be skinny as I've always been more or less skinny.. but I truly just want to be happy.
Last year was tough, I had some physical goals to keep me on track and the support of this amazing community. As my physical goals still remain I never again want to find myself emotionally as low and lonely as I went last year. Happiness is the goal, and happiness starts within. 💙 #happiness#balance#createthelifeyoulove
