Saturday afternoon and all is well in soberland. The quiet in my head returned after the initial bout of wine chatter over anticipated bottles of wine that I might receive for my birthday last weekend. Gifts of wine never materialized. Thank you Lord.
Pretty much a quiet week as well.
Grateful for all that I have gained by not drinking. Sounder and uninterrupted sleep is at the top of the list. Other areas of significant improvement are: clarity of thought, psychological/emotional strength, calmness of spirit and the increased ability to be present with myself and others.
Have to say I am disappointed I have not lost weight but I know that will come. My skin looks better and my energy is sustained throughout the day.
My goal now is to get on a consistent schedule of exercise. It’s getting cold here and in these last few years I’ve turned into quite the winter sloth. I began this morning with a good walk/run.
It’s a gorgeous fall day and I’ll spend the rest of the weekend winterizing.
Good to be sober. Grateful to be sober.
Thanks be to God.
