I am pretty amazed that as of today my writings have received over 10,000 views! Two years ago, I would not have taken the time to write a shopping list, let alone share the most intimate details of my life and I am blown away by the positive responses that I have recieved.
So today I just wanted to tell you that I'm feeling blessed and even though it somewhat makes me uncomfortable letting people into my personal life, I thank you for being in it.
I have put my heart and soul out there for you to read, in hopes that it may affect you in some way. To me, what I write is not all that extraordinary but the responses I have received are a blessing because you feel, have felt, or even understand a lot of the things that I have put into words.
I had the feeling for a long time that my three DUI’s automatically made me a bad person and an alcoholic. I know now that is not true and regardless of how I came to it, sobriety was my decision, and one that most people don't consider an option for themselves, regardless of where they fall on the spectrum of addiction. Those that choose the path to stop drinking willfully choose to stop drinking, because there is always the alternative to spiral further. Sobriety isn't something that I had to do. Sobriety is something that I get to do. I decide that I wanted more for myself, I decided that my more won't be found in a bottle of booze, and I got the fuck after it. And proudly so.
I consider myself lucky to have this platform to share my journey and thoughts with you and I thank you for reading, it means the world to me. I will continue to write when I feel like I have something to say and I will continue to write to inspire, to motivate, to be at peace myself and get some of these damn thoughts out of my head!
So thanks again for reading and please continue to share my writings. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah or whatever it is that you choose to celebrate during this holiday season!
