Day 11 of the new me – feeling STRONG

It’s 5am and I’m up and excited to face the day. I feel wonderfully recharged after a great night sleep and I’m feeling positive because I can feel my life improving every single day.

So far it’s been easy being sober. I haven’t thought much at all about drinking and have had very few cravings. It’s been weird in that way, but I know I will have challenges ahead soon.

The first challenge will come at the end of January when we travel to California for a big real estate event. At the event will be a party on the first night. Last time we were there I managed to get myself so drunk on wine at a party that I fell getting my shoes back on at the front door. It was so humiliating. My dress went up and I basically flashed whoever was still there looking at the time. My husband was mortified. It was awful. This year it’s a much bigger party and everyone is going to be dressed in red and gold for the Chinese New Year celebration. And this year I will be sober! Hubby and I spent time last night ordering a gold glittery skirt and red top for me and some gold shiny shoes for him to complete our outfits and we are ready to go! We are actually excited to go sober and get our workouts in while there because we won’t be hungover. It should be fun.

Immediately following that he got us tickets to go see a favorite oldie band, Styx. This would normally be a drunk event for me for sure, but most anything was! But we will see Styx sober. These are the first two bigger challenges we will face. I feel strong.

Yes, strong. I finally decided. Strong is my word of 2020. I am strong. I feel strong. It’s a weird word. I love it. Lisa Marie is strong.

I just turned 50 and am ready to make 2020 the year of major change for myself and my family! I am a realtor, an artist and a fitness lover. I am ready to tackle some of those difficult things in life that seem to get put off and put off and see where this new road of focus and intention takes me.
