Happy Mother's day! Another day clear and present with my family. I swam with my kids and my 19 month old daughter finally felt comfortable in the water and it was a huge breakdown to get out of the pool. But she made it up to me by letting me snuggle her while we took a midday nap. she's not a cuddler at all, so this made my day. My 8 year old pressed my buttons, but I have a ton of patience right now, so I handled it well. He is in this horrid phase, plus I'm sober, so I say no to more things when I used to just say, I don't care, bud. He'll thank me later, I'm sure.
I have to say, I'm proud and feel great, but I am doing a ton of hard work to make each day meaningful. I've started a gratitude journal, I also document the days as I follow may cause miracles, which is 40 days long, and I just freewrite. I'm reading the bulletproof diet book again, and reading the choose yourself guide to wealth, which is interesting and falls in line with my whole career shift. I listen to people talk about positivity and shifts in thinking and how to take action. I am living, breathing, and oozing positivity and wholesomeness. (Which smells better than tequila...)
I drank because I hated the life I had made, the job I worked. I convinced myself I was horribly depressed and there was nothing I could do...but I told myself the lie that drinking made me happier.
I can change everything. It's my life and I'll do what I want. I've been speaking openly and passionately this past week especially about what I want and I am getting support and love that I need. I'm finding that you get back what you give out.
Do some work on your insides, your heart and soul and I am finding it brings huge returns.
