A new normal
Day 145 sober... Feeling empowered, proud and motivated.
Changing a lifestyle has to be more than a want, it’s a process through the continual internal battle. I shouldn’t have this drink or make this choice, yet justifying the drink or choosing what’s against your truths.
This is awareness, that voice becoming so loud that you no longer can ignore it. 145 days ago that’s where I was, not realizing how much of a toll drinking was taking on my life and my body. Last night out with drinking friends and my Pellegrino and lime in a wine glass was empowering. I was alert, clear and full of life and laughs. I thought I always had to have alcohol in me to be that fun. I can say I’m happier now than I can ever remember. I’ve conquered a battle within myself and am making better choices.
Today I’m taking my final exams for my Yoga teacher training certification with absolute bliss for the path I have chosen...this is only the beginning of my new life and I am bursting with light and energy excited to see where this new adventure takes me.
With a hunger and desire so strong to guide others through their internal battles and help conquer the mental games preventing from living the best life, the life always dreamed of.
We all can get there, it’s just a matter of feeling your emotions, realizing the lesson through every action and facing fears head on instead of running from them.
The mat has taught me much about myself and getting over obstacles especially how much I judged my own self... no more... choose love always.
