Because I am sober, today I am free to go to an amazing Daylily farm and get some plants that I can view not only today but next year too. Love daylilies!

Today, because I am sober, I can plan and accomplish my work goals with the rewards that come from anticipation rather than the results that come from fear.

Today because I am sober, I am free to be myself, express myself with honesty and let the chips fall where they may. I am free to put sobriety first.

Because I am sober today, I am free to have recieved a call from my Dad today, and then call him back tonight to tell him how much I love him. And cry. But not because I am a sappy drunk. I'm just naturally sappy!

Because I'm sober I was able to get up early. Have coffee and enjoy the sunrise. Go to the gym and kill myself. Come home and enjoyable baseball game. Life is great.

I got up early this morning had a nice coffee & drove to go & watch a local tennis tournament then went to see a friend at his new house for his daughters first birthday party. We are blessed to be sober, healthy & strong.

Because I am sober, today I am free to be grumpy, have a bad day at work, and never have drinking enter my mind as an antidote. Yay!

Because I am sober today I was free to go in my old liquor store and buy Dom Perignon for my daughter and husbands special anniversary.

I spent much more money (than what that costs) in a month of my former drinking. Because I am sober I could spring for it as a special treat for them.

They are so supportive of me I was happy to buy it for a surprise. I wouldnt do this if you're not ready though...( Plus there is a seal on it so I know I wont drink it!)

I walked 5 miles this morning, worked in my studio all day, went to a pig roast and concert in the park.

Today I am free to drive where I want, remember and have accountability for what I do, be guilt free, and hopeful for the future!

Today I was free to continue work around the house and enjoy time with my family because I was not hung over without motivation and exhausted. I had energy to spare and a positive outlook. Tomorrow I am free to tackle even more.

Today I am free to see things as they really are, and not how I want them to be. Which gives me the opportunity to make real changes that can impact my life. Instead of living on in a drunken fantasy.

Because I am sober, today I was free to save money by not drinking alcohol at the lovely french restaura I was at for lunch, and spend that money on some absolutely fabulous new shoes. C'est magnifique! Lol Free to treat myself to something outrageous!!!

Because I am sober today, I was free to pick up my beloved dog at boarding today, and drive right by what had been my neighborhood liquor store and not give it a tought till just now. Free to not ROTATE liquor stores out of sheer humiliation.

Because I am sober today I have more capacity to reflect on things and take appropriate action.
