It’s been awhile since I’ve taken the time to share in this space, to share what life looks like at 622 days sober.
It’s been awhile since I’ve even had to luxury to slow down enough to reflect and put into full sentences where I’m at today vs. 623 days ago.
It’s been an even longer while since I’ve craved a drink or mind-numbing escape, which tells me a heck of a lot about the strength in my stance today.
It’s been a super long while since I truly felt like the real ME. I’m talking about the gal I was before my first sip of alcohol. The gal who was creative, faced fears, and sought out new experiences. I’m her now. She’s back! She’s resurfaced after YEARS and layers of shame, guilt, and insecurity.
Ya see, when I formulated the idea of this blog I was roughly four months sober. Although I felt secure in this life-changing decision, I knew I’d been there before. I knew that I’d possibly hit a point in the road again where I would question myself and be tempted with the idea of “moderation.”
So instead of wrestling those potential moments alone, I decided to share my journey with a little speck of the world wide web. I thought by sharing my story aloud I might inspire another soul all while keeping myself accountable.
Looking over this blog, I feel proud. I feel like my mission has brought about a great deal of personal accomplishments, as well as brought hope and inspiration to others.
And now this blog serves as a foundation for my next chapter in life.
Without going into too much detail, as those will come VERY soon, I am putting it out there that “From Wine to Fine” will be shifting gears. Much of what I have shared will come along, but there will be a new home for my thoughts and goodness for the world.
This next step (aka leap of faith) wholeheartedly stems from my sobriety. The creative juices that started with this blog directly correlate with each and every day that I lay my head down at night- sober!
And as much as I’d love to spend more time sharing and posting right here like I once did, I must keep working behind the scenes on the exciting new chapter that follows.
However, you will hear from me, again, semi-soon with all the deets! You can also expect to see some of my sober ramblings on the new and AH-mazing website- Sober Mom Tribe.
So although it’s been awhile, I see the beauty that comes with time. Time heals, time grows us. Time is a gift.
Until next time, folks! XOXO!
