Purdy Thirty

It’s 10:20 on a Friday night and it’s been an EXHAUSTING week, so imma make this short.

Today is Day 30 ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

I feel happy all over about this and I don’t have any desire to drink.

Tonight Hubby asked me if I wanted to go on the Boy Scout camping trip next weekend to Putnam Bay in Ohio.

B.S. (Before Sobriety) my answer would have been a quick “No.”ย  Boy Scouts prohibits the use of alcohol.ย  No way in hell would I subject myself to a weekend with no alcohol (B.S. alcohol was a necessity EVERY night– especially on the weekend).

All that time missed with my family, when I chose alcohol over them.

I won’t dwell, it’s the past and I let it go.ย  I CAN change the future and make happier path.ย  THIS feels right, and I feel optimistic.

So, instead of a hard, “No.”ย  I say, “Where are we staying?ย  What will we be doing?ย  Where is that at?”ย  After getting those answers, MY answer is easy, “YEAH I want to go with you guys!”

THIS is living.ย  Participating in life instead of sitting on the sidelines getting wasted.ย  Joyous.

If you haven’t started living again yet, I invite you to try it.ย  You may feel slightly like a kid again.

I feel like a kid tonight who has OD’ed on sugar with too much coke and jelly beans.

Now I’m getting the urge to wake up early tomorrow morning to binge watch cartoons <3

  1. I do feel like a kid when I am sober. All the time. And I love it. I feel like I get back a childhood and the spontaneity I lost in dulling my life <3
