Jogged 2.25 miles. Removing alcohol from my life is allowing me to accomplish things I always told myself I just wasn't capable of.

I woke up on a Sunday at 7 am. I took a shower and I'm heading to a meeting soon.

Today I woke up full of energy. I received a "free sofa" I acquired through a friend. It looks perfect in my lounge.

Now i am totally on a mission to do jobs around the house.

Why did I waste Sundays hung-over & having more beers "hair of the dog" at lunchtime, achieving basically nothing all day. PAAHHH!

got up early, started crockpot dinner.
enjoying a coffee (or 2) and then will workout. I have some stuff around the apt. I may do. Or I may just watch netflix on this rainy day! either way, I ain't drinking! and feel good.

today i stayed calm and serene when my boss said he wants to fire me. if i was still drinking i would have gotten angry and defensive and stormed out without a job. instead we are talking tomorrow and who knows!

sobriety rocks! can't say i'm thrilled about things, life on life's terms can really suck sometimes, but recovery has given me the tools to know whatever happens i will be ok.

Got lost driving (as per usual) and didn't panic. Used my sixth sense and was at my destination in minutes.

Kept my cool. Was not avoiding people at because I was hungover as ever with glassy eyes and alcohol breath. I am beginning to feel more happy and confident.

Today I had a good day at work. I'm very lucky to have a great job and outstanding co-workers. I've thought about drinking here and there (only Day 9) but it's almost like an idea that I observe and then discard, if that makes any sense. Today I was a sober mom. Today I was thankful that I didn't have to hunt down a dumpster or trash can to throw away my empties after I smuggled them out of the house. Today I was relieved that I didn't have to make sure I was stocked up on wine for the weekend.

Went for a run for the first time in well over a year, probably close a year and a half. It wasn't fast and it wasn't far...but I did it. Just three-ish years ago, I was an avid runner, cld easily knock out 6 miles before work and did a number of races. So today was a huge step for me in the right direction finally.

Today I looked deep inside for a positive after hearing my moms cancer is back. And I found one. Now she can be treated again and fight this beast. 5 major surgeries and the woman's a trouper. She will beat this again!

Made plans to meet a relative without reacting to their behavioral quirks.

I realize this person isn't going to change, no matter how annoyed or angry I feel about the situation. I can only change my response to them. I have choices too: I can engage with them, or I can say 'no thank you'.

But if I really want to see this person (and I do), then I have to accept their neurotic tendencies.

Serenity in action, yay.

This is a huge improvement for me. If I'd been drinking, I wouldn't have felt calm enough to tolerate this relative's quirkiness.

I'm so sorry to hear your Moms cancer is back Waterfalls. You are very strong to search for a silver lining through this. I hope she beats cancer and it never returns.

Today I kept my cool when my children's grandmother was an hour late dropping off the kids at our pre-determined meeting point.
