Even though this Christmas (my first, sober) is kind of hard for me, you can’t beat the sense of peace! Being woken up by my 2 year old crawling on my head at 6am asking for a yogurt. Feeling kind of groggy (stayed up too late). Making coffee, getting her yogurt, answering some of her endless questions (I don’t know where we’re going today, no santa isn’t coming today again, yes I do love your new doll and of course I’d love to give her a hug. And can I give you a hug, too? etc).
And nowhere in there was that anxious buzz trying to piece together the night before. My heart pounding. Trying to feel the vibe in the bedroom. Is my husband pissed off at me? Trying to convince myself that I’m not THAT hungover, gulping back juice or ho ho ho, santa coke. What time can I start drinking today?
None of that.
Today I am so thankful for the sense of peace that comes with living sober.
Have a great day, everyone!
