πŸ¦‹Day 103: Sober and thankful… it’s the small things πŸ¦‹

Thankful for not getting boozed last night. Thankful for waking up energetic and with a clear head, marking day 103 on my sobriety tracker. Yay! πŸ¦‹

Thankful for my wildly windy hill walk after the cyclone this morning. The sea views were stunning and the colours were breathtaking. 

Thankful for warm hot cross buns with melted butter and coffee afterwards. And really authentic conversations with friends and family. Some relationships that were historically broken are slowly mending. πŸ¦‹

On reflection, I’m incredibly proud of today’s accomplishments. None of these things would have eventuated like this when I drank. 

On day 103, it is the small things that I’m thankful for. Like the autumn wind on my face, the sun shining on my yoga mat or the smell of the sea. But mostly, it’s the authentic, sincere conversations and connections that are growing. As is my confidence. The things that matter to me now have shifted considerably from the superficial drinker I once was. πŸ¦‹

Have a safe, relaxing and peaceful Easter my friends. I am forever thankful for your support, advice and inspiration along the way. 

Love and sober hugs from New Zealand πŸ¦‹

  1. I live at the base of the Rocky Mountains here in colorado and our skies are exceptional one of the first things I notice in sobriety is the ability to see and appreciate color. Often I wonder why I feel I need a drink in the first place all it does is numb my ability to receive mother natures gifts. Excellent post!

  2. Lovely! And what a view!
    Amazing how things feel and ARE different when we’re in a good space, feeling good mentally and physically, and knowing that we’re taking care of ourselves πŸ™‚
