    Smile 9 Months

    Hi all! I’m checking in today to document my progress, update the status of my recovery, etc. I didn't know what to expect or how I would feel at this point in my recovery, but I am so glad I made the choice to turn the idea of maybe one day, into day one. It has been a bumpy rollercoaster ride, with lots of loops/ups/downs/turns, and it has all been worth it. As more time passes, I find myself feeling more and more like me; back to being the awesome wife and dog mom that I am, kicking *** and taking names at work, volunteering, and choosing to just enjoying life because life is short.

    Months – 9 | Days – 274 | Meetings attended – 521 | HOVs/CBAs/LBWs completed – too many to count
    Mooring Lines – Self-Care, SEN (sleep, exercise, nutrition), Meetings, Gratitude lists, Mindfulness, VACIs, Ta-Da lists, Volunteering, Laughter
    Favorite tool(s)– Hula hoop & Power of Choice – making a choice, accepting it and all that comes with it, embracing it and enjoying it. No matter what I choose (side B, ME, joy) I’ve come to learn that the P’s are key to my success - planning, practice, patience, persistence…

    Take care of your self-care, y’all!

    P.S. Sushi and sparkling cider for dinner to celebrate

    Exciting stuff ChrisTLynne!

    Hearty congratulations on those gifts to yourself and those around you
    What got me sober was TRYING to get sober. Often when I lapsed, picked up, drank, I FELT thoroughly beaten. I thought at that time "there is no hope for me" Yet, when I had recovered from that thought just a little, I thought "I'll have another GO!" It was a few little sparks, rather than a flame, that got me here!
