Since I’ve started to share my writing on social media, a few people have messaged me with kind words and encouragement. Others have said that they too suffer similar anxieties and worries. I am pleased to know that my honesty makes them realise they are not alone. I am pleased that I had the courage to be honest. I no longer feel so alone.
I think that this year, I will continue to be open and allow myself to be honest with myself and others. I am beginning to feel proud of my vulnerability.
I plan to continue the things that are keeping me Sober. It is almost a year of continued sobriety for me, and I believe that meditation, my writing, also getting back to work has helped to maintain this.
I also plan to stay in closer touch with those who may need a friend. I know how it feels to feel alone and misunderstood, and I will always do my best to help others.
I am beginning to not worry so much about relapse, and I do not think about alcohol from one week to the next in the main part. I am slowly becoming comfortable with my sobriety, and it no longer defines me.
I would like to start sewing regularly again this new year, so I must allow a space and time to achieve it.
Mainly I wish to build stronger relationships with my husband, my family who are not so close, and my true friends. I value all of these immensely, and I will put the effort in to help these thrive again.
A Happy and Blessed New Year… Bring it on ❤
