Doing you what you can.

Today, there are many things I can’t do.

For instance, I can’t fix my relationship with my mother.

I can’t pay off all my bills today.

I can’t seem to get motivated to do all the things that “must” be done around my house/yard.

But there is one thing I can do. I get to do. I choose to do.

It’s completely within my control. I get the choice. That freedom is empowering.

I can choose not to drink today. I can be sober and alcohol free today.

Inspired by an old friend that I just found out has been sober for 12 years!

Day 1 all over again after many false starts, failed, and aborted attempts.

But failing is an integral part of success. It teaches you what does not work.

I'm a professional, a mom, an entrepreneur, unrepentant bibliophile, and a lover of all things in nature. Oh yeah, and I may have an unhealthy relationship with alcohol...
