So 5 things, :thinking:

  1. My mother, brother, grandma & grandpa, and my God son
  2. My job
  3. That I have food and a roof over my head
  4. Mental clarity. Example: I have a clear head, not foggy, not hung over, not tired, and focused.
  5. I have a community (sober time) that is here to support me. I appreciate the time I get to vent, respond to others, and over all just check in and feel safe.

Being sober and bringing on the new year, awesome job!
My Friday ritual is a cauliflower pizza I get from Walmart. It’s in the cold section. I add some pineapple, ham, and a pizza seasoning. “Almost” the real deal haha

  1. Doing what I say I’m going to do! Following through 99% of the time is a really special gift to give others and I don’t miss out on important things.
  2. Healing from a very bad relationship I had over the summer. Rather than coping with drinking and drugging, I’m going through the motions and letting time soften my strong feelings.
  3. Noticing numbers and signs from Angel guides.
  4. Driving. I do not take it for granted and am happy not to spend money on cabs and Ubers.
  5. All the non alcoholic options to choose from at bars and restaurants these days. Especially in a big city.
