Short post. I’m slammed at work and I’m pretty sure I’m going to dream in Excel spreadsheets tonight. And if my boss comes in here to bother me one more time, I’m probably going to need a new computer monitor because this one will most likely break when I throw it at his eye. Breathe. Breathe. SMILE. Scream into desk chair.
In the midst of such chaos, I received a random and very thoughtful email from my boyfriend and it honestly couldn’t have come at a better time. Very short and sweet. It said:
I’m really proud of you. Taking the steps to becoming sober and being sober show your strength, your passion to live life to the fullest, and are quite inspiring. I love you and wanted you to know how much I care.
You never know how a simple expression of support or love can turn a person’s entire day around. So if you have an impulse to check in with someone you love, just DO. It might be exactly what they need. AND WHAT YOU NEED.
And in the spirit of this post, I have a message for anyone reading this silly silly blog:
I think you are absolutely fucking amazing for contemplating sobriety, pursuing sobriety, living in long term sobriety, or supporting someone in recovery. You are brave and endlessly inspiring to me. And I’m so glad to know you. Even if it’s virtually. And I wish you nothing but eventual peace. If you have sobriety, hold on to it. And if you don’t have it yet, don’t stop fighting for it. Things can be better. Things can be amazing.
Okay. That’s about all the silly mushy shit I can muster for the day. If you want more warm cuddlies, go read some Hallmark cards. Or ask your grandma to braid your hair and tell you stories about the old timey days. AND DON’T DRINK!
