Another Wine Free Day – Thankful

Good morning,

It is cold here in Canada today but I woke up before the alarm and felt like I had some great sleep rather than the typical wine slumber I normally experience. So that is the first thing I am grateful for today. Also, I woke up without the headachy feeling and disgusting taste in my mouth. Life is so much better without that. So – grateful for that too.

I went out to the hardware store and the craft store last night. Creativity is one thing that flies right out the window when my focus is wine. If felt amazing to lose myself in making some jewellery and zen-doodling an original Christmas card that I will send out this year. Creativity is what my heart craves at the moment.

I am going to  begin training for my third half-marathon as well.  The last time I had some time alcohol free I completed two half-marathons. Running was my drug of choice. “I craved a different kind of buzz…” So much better. Running, yoga, reading all seem to fall to the wayside when wine enters the picture. All that is left is HGTV, my couch, and late night snacking. I am grateful to have the will to run again.

Today we will put our tree up. That used to mean lots of rum and eggnog and usually ended with me losing interest halfway through. This year it will be herbal tea and our tree now has lights pre-strung. YAY!

All in all a great start to the day…

I am a woman who realized that alcohol was taking the joy and vibrancy out of my life. It was an old, fickle friend who turned on me. I needed to let the habit go. Simple but not easy. This blog and the connections I made here helped. A lot. And for that I will always be grateful. Without wine, I have created a beautiful and deeply meaningful life. I am now a certified recovery coach helping others create their own beautiful lives... Thanks for stopping by!
