Feeling so grateful to be sober today. I let my son sleep with us last night and we fell asleep around 8:30 which is pretty early for me. So, I was up at 4am – got my 30 minutes in on the elliptical and read some sober blogs. This is what has been missing from my routine (or lack thereof) that had previously kept me sober. Self care, exercise, a focus on sobriety and what a gift it truly is. I can’t keep getting caught up in what others are doing (drinking) and thinking that it OK for me to do the same. I’m going to have to carve my own path and it may be lonely at times but I know it will be worth it in the long run.
