November 1st.... many friends on Facebook started "30 Days of Being Thankful". Each day they will post what they are Thankful for. I joined in. Day 1, I am thankful for my healthy family.
Here on my Blog, "30 Days of Being Thankful".
Day 1, I'm thankful I'm sober. Yes it is only 10 days today, but I am Thankful I have 10 days under my belt going into the weekend. TGIF usually means, Happy Hour somewhere. Bar, home, friends, but somewhere including a nice cocktail. My sober car is riding along the highway and I don't seem to see any accidents or road closures up ahead. If something comes up, I am prepared. I have my teas, mocktails (Mineral water and fixings) and plenty of Chocolate. I have my jumpstart personal call with Belle Saturday morning. I have a date at the gym Saturday morning. I have plans to make a big batch of soup Saturday afternoon and today after work I am shopping for my supplies. Sunday afternoon I have a gathering with my girlfriends and there will be plenty of wine. I will bring my fancy mineral water. Its ok to bring wine to events so why not my own non alcoholic beverage? I am sure some heads will take a double take but I don't care. Seriously, I don't care. If anyone asks, I am cutting back. No biggie.
If I have time this weekend, I would like to treat myself to a pedicure and manicure. I "deserve" it after a long week. Before I would say I "deserve" a glass of wine which would be more than a glass. So now I "deserve" something better. Something healthier. Sobriety!
Happy Weekend to all~
