I cannot believe that I am on Day 80 of a sober free life!!! I really can't believe it! I had never made it past a Day 1 before...EVER! So, in honor of my Day 80 I am going to start doing some self-loving! This is something NONE of us have while we are drinking! Self-loathing is more like it! But boy oh boy it feels AWESOME not waking up in the wee hours of the morning hating myself!!
I am loving myself today for having the courage and the will power to make it this far...and it hasn't been easy. The good days are really good but the bad days are really bad!
I am going to love myself in that I am starting to learn how to deal with my emotions. This is even harder work than quitting drinking in my opinion!
I am going to love myself for becoming a better mom, wife and friend in the last 80 days. I am more present and am a good listener! When I was drinking, it was all about me!
I will leave you with this quote by Dr. Steve Maraboli (I have no idea who he is, but I love the quote!)
LOVE YOURSELF enough to take the actions required for your happiness.
LOVE YOURSELF enough to cut yourself loose from the ties of the drama-filled past.
LOVE YOURSELF enough to move on!!!
Hoping you can love yourself today! You deserve it!
