Christmas 2017, a Wrap… Yet?

Merry Christmas morning!

This is a tough day for many. Whether you are missing someone who is no longer here, overwhelmed by family obligations or just stressed with the expectations that come with this time of the year, don’t forget to Just Breathe.

I will be needing to take this advice throughout the day. I was up late playing Santa and woken up at 5:30am by a very excited littleboy. It will be a long day at the inlaws today and I’m likely to get tired and irritable later.

I am wishing you all a stress free sober day. If you get tempted, remember to follow the drink and think about how awesome your wake up will be tomorrow if you don’t drink. Reach out if you need is an awesome place to find online meetings if you can’t make it to a live on today.

Above all, if you mess up, get up. Forgive yourself and be kind. We have ALL made mistakes, it is how we learn. Keep moving forward and don’t give up!!

Much Love <3 <3 <3IMG_8519.JPG

  1. Merry Christmas!! I have learned to let people be themselves, and I don’t try to be acting but me either. Took three years, but I am learning!
    I am so glad you are sober and things will be okay!

    1. Good points Wendy! Isn’t it amazing how much we grow & learn while sober? It’s like when I was drinking there was zero growth & learning. I just went through life in a zombified stupor. What a sad way to get through life! Thank God for sobriety 😊🙏🏼💙

    1. Thanks 😊😊. I like the tree but really hoping to get it put away soon with all the other decorations. Ready to kiss the holiday season goodbye 😉
