Well, well, well, look who made it one week without alcohol! It may be a small victory, but it’s a win nonetheless.
To those of you reading this as a follow up to last week’s announcement that I’ll be living sober, I want to say a special thank you. The amount of love and support I received was overwhelming. I feel so blessed to have each and every one of you cheering me on and even more honored that you would take the time to come back and read up on how I’m doing. You are all lovely people and I thank you for that.

But most importantly, I learned that it was ridiculous I’d been so afraid to STOP drinking for so long.

So far this month we’ve talked about what to do when our lives are falling apart, being betrayed by the person we love and bringing peace into our lives despite all that. We’ve even created a playlist to help deal with the pain.
Well, my friends, I’ve got another playlist for you today! This one is less about the pain and more about the empowerment that comes after. Once we’ve pulled ourselves out of the ocean of emotion and start to remember who we are. That is what this playlist is all about. It’s experiencing the ebb and flow of emotions, but still picking yourself up everyday and charging forward into life with a fierceness.
