So, I’ve been MIA from my blog for a good while. Reason being was I wasn’t willing to face the facts. I knew deep down that short term abstinence wouldn’t work for me and that I would have to make the decision to abstain and be sober for good/forever. Until I was willing to admit that I couldn’t write here because I was NOT living my best life or loving my “new” life!
After much trial and error and denial (I imagine) I have made the commitment to quit drinking and smoking and to change my whole situation. My true desires always have been to be super healthy, live a simple life and be in great shape. However, I’ve let work and life take over the past 20 years and I’ve lost my true self in that course. I’m committed to change that and change my life starting today.
I’m going to document the journey here, on my blog, and hope to connect with likeminded individuals in the process.
I know they say not to do too much at once, but I feel this all goes hand in hand. Today I commit to no alcohol, no cigarettes and to eat whole fruits, vegetables and grains/oats. I will measure my body and take photos to document progress. I will find some accountability partners and we will help each other. I intend to work more on my passions of exercise, gardening and painting and less on my business. I have more than enough but not enough of my true self, so this is the priority starting today. I’m going to find me again.
If anyone is on this same journey, reach out! I’d love to connect.
