what we put off
a very low energy day. i do well with vacation days when my husband is also off work. when it’s just me, i basically ‘wait’ for him to come home.
i also have a dentist appt tomorrow that i’m not thrilled about.
we’re not fans of the dentist, are we.
and here’s what i know about the dentist that i also know about sobriety (because everything is like everything):
it’s never as bad as we think it is (stay here)
our mind only makes up bad options, never good ones (catastrophizing)
i need a reward for when it’s over (non-food, for obvious reasons)
this is dental work that i avoided for a long time because of drinking and scarcity thinking
i’m a grown up for dealing with the things on my plate, whether i like them (today) or not
it’s always better when it’s done
it’s never what we think it will be
being sober is just plain better than fretting about alcohol
(going to the dentist is just plain better than eating on the other side of your month for weeks)
to feel the love today

and answer this question:
what is ONE thing you’ve dealt with as a sober human, that you pretty much ignored when drinking …
love and hugs
(oh and the weather is just a fucking shit show, perfect for a stay-cation. not.)
love and hugs again
