Good Morning!

Each morning when I wake up, I am profoundly grateful to be well. To be rested. To be at peace with myself. Not so long ago I was involved in a one woman, self-inflicted war and the casualties were my body and soul. Waking up, not remembering, feeling that chemically taste in my mouth, muscles aching, body unrested and so very ill. The stark realization that I had stayed up late again, not remembering getting to bed despite the fact that my body and soul had said enough. My mind continually overrode the “enough” signal and said, “Just one more glass…” But now, the gifts of recovery are remarkable. My body says enough, tired now around 9:30 and my mind AGREES! And we go have a bubble bath or a sauna or a cup of tea and turn out the light most nights by 10. That is the real me. And in the morning when I wake up, I am profoundly grateful to be well.

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!
