So, this may not be a big deal to some, but it is something Brendan and I are extremely proud of. #teamH2O
See, if you're new to my story, I was on a short and ugly path to becoming an alcoholic. For 2-3 years I was drinking a bottle and a half of wine 🍷a night for the WRONG reasons. What started out as a casual here and there drink after work because I NEEDED it, -to- well, it helps me sleep, -to- I just want to. I haven't given up alcohol completely which brings me to the next paragraph...
I was able to get my drinking under control with strangely enough portion control containers. Who knew what 3 yellow containers a week could do, but they saved my life and my marriage, which brings me back to why these last 3 days are so important to me.
My birthday 🎉 is June 12th and this year instead of organizing a party based around getting hammered, per usual, I decided to celebrate my body with a 21 day cleanse/detox. I'm just ending the first week, so this was a crucial time for me. What's funny is, it wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. I could have easily stayed home all three days and told Brendan to go without me so I wasn't tempted. He would have understood, but that's not living. What living is, is finding a why that's so powerful that even the devil can't break you. I found my why and if I can do it, I promise you anyone can. You just have to look deep enough. So here's to L.I.V.I.N!
