2 years and 3 days.


i got HERE.  i GOT here.  I got here.  The terrified me.  The panic-ing me.  The ”my life is over if I don’t drink” me… we are here.  Thanks to those who read my blog, who supported me with lovely messages…

I think for me the most important thing I have learned, the one thing that I want to take away more than any other… is that I now CHOOSE how my day turns out.  Before, I was at the mercy of circumstance.  Maybe it would turn into a big night… maybe not…. I now don’t have that worry hanging over me.  I am choosing how I go to bed, and subsequently HOW I wake up.  My life has an intentionality about it now that it is not left to random chance, roll of the dice of how rough I was going to feel the next day.

I choose life.

Contrary to thinking my life being over, my life is more productive, thought out, full, satisfying and connected than ever before.

TWO YEARS and counting.  I don’t think I’ll go back.

So grateful.
