I am going to be real here and say that tonight might be difficult. I have had one hell of a week. I have worked 60 hours this week because we had conferences. I meet with 34 sets of parents (one conference every 15 minutes) for two days and I am utterly exhausted! It is Friday, my room is a disaster and I am not ready for next week. And.....the sun is supposed to be shining this afternoon. Anyone who knows me, knows that is a HUGE trigger for me! I am on day 13 and I don't want to drink, but I am also not in denial that I may feel differently at 3:00 this afternoon. I am going to really try to keep a positive mind about it.
My mantra is going to be,
"I would rather be sober."
I want to enjoy what I am doing, even if that means sitting in the sun or on the couch, fully present and sober. I want to wake up the next two mornings without a hangover, not feeling guilty, feeling really proud of myself, clear headed, ready to take on the things that I need to get done. I want to wake up Monday morning ready to face the new week rested and positive.
