I don’t think there is anything better than a Sunny Sober Saturday!! Beautiful life & beautiful day! Spending the day with family out in the sunshine before Tim and I head to Hawaii on Monday! WOO!
#welchdownwednesday ladies & gents! Routine is key for my sobriety. Is it for you!? It keeps my mind clear, my life organized, and allows me to stay in the right lane for my recovery. Wednesday nights are my nights. No one is home so the house is quiet as a mouse and I am able to get SO much done. I race home to jump into my favorite pajamas, whip out my computer, and pour myself a glass of sparkling juice. Every single Wednesday. I use these nights to plan, journal, meditate, organize, and relax. Life is crazy y’all and if I don’t take some ‘me’ time to get organized and stay organized I will end up completely overwhelmed and filled with loads of anxiety. Not a good place to be. So sober cheers to routine and an organized hump day to each one of you!!!
I will never be thankful or grateful for being an alcoholic. Because let’s be real, addiction is a b*tch. However, without my struggles I would have never stumbled upon my strengths. And for that I am thankful. I would have never thought I would use the word ‘strong’ to describe myself. Fast forward to a little over 3.5 years into recovery and ‘strong’ is the first word I choose to describe myself. I’ve walked through hell and here I am now shining bright learning just how strong I really am. Sobriety has taught me how to turn those struggles into strengths and to push through no matter what life may throw your way. Get sober and get strong!
If I would have only known how beautiful the views were in recovery maybe I would have given it a serious shot sooner when I was in the grips of active addiction. It’s scary going into something wholeheartedly when you don’t know what it’s going to look like or be like. All I can say is, sit back, buckle up, and keep going one day at a time. It’s a bumpy ride but sure worth it. Don’t give up before you get to see and experience the best views you’ve yet to see✨
Wake up everyday and make it your objective to put as much effort into you and your recovery as you did for that drink/drug. There aren’t any excuses in recovery because we proved every single one of them wrong when we were in active addiction. When it starts to feel hard and days become long, push on. You got this. We are all strong warriors that know the real definition of what a long hard day feels like. Change is possible but it takes work. Get up and go after what you want 🖤🖤 PS- exciting stuff coming your way as @recoveryrockstars and I are doing a podcast tonight on my story. Stay tuned!!
A Sober Saturday will always lead to a hangover free Sunday and most of the time a very productive one. Both of those things were absolutely out of the question when I was drinking. I used to roll out of bed on a Sunday at about 1 in the afternoon and that was only to find my bottle of liquor to drink myself back to sleep. Over time it wasn’t just my Sunday’s that looked like this. Everyday became this routine. I was only awake long enough to find alcohol and drink until I blacked out again. Doing anything productive was the last thing on my mind. I was only worried about alcohol and surviving. I’m grateful I don’t have to live like that anymore. My Sunday’s look and feel totally different now. I wake up early with a clear fresh mind, tackle all the laundry, hit the grocery store, and whatever other projects I have going on. I use my Sunday’s as my reset days to be ready to go for the week. I love the feeling of going to bed on a Sunday night knowing that is everything is done and I am ready for a bright and early Monday morning. What do your Sunday’s look like!!??
Happy Sober Saturday!! It’s a much needed nice quiet calm day at our house. Enjoying the downtime to recharge for next week. Only thing we have planned for the evening is to watch the Cowboys win💙🏈 what are yalls sober Saturday plans!?!
The front entry is one of my favorite areas in our home to look at. This was my old entertainment center that I repurposed to our front entry table. When I moved in with Tim, we both had SO much great furniture that neither one of us wanted to get rid of any of our stuff. I rearranged the house as much as I could to incorporate both of our things but Tim was a great sport and let the decorator take over and sadly some of his things hit the road.
