Saturday Morning Dance Party

one-thousand-gifts-ann-voskamp-gratitude

I have been writing a daily gratitude journal- well, most days at least- for the past few weeks. I am already noticing a shift in my attitude because of it. I became sick with the flu this week, and felt nauseous in a way that I haven’t since my last hangover. I can’t believe it used to be normal for me to feel that way so much of the time. It is SO not normal. Today I am grateful to be sober because I am learning that I deserve to spend most of my life feeling good.

Early this morning I had a dance party in my living room with my son. I never would have done that when I was drinking because I usually felt like I had the flu on Saturday mornings, and it was all I could do to make coffee and supervise. I am grateful for Saturday morning dance parties. They are 1,000,000 times better than Friday night drinking parties.

Happy weekend to you all.

  1. Hi, Jen. I’ve been lurking on the blogs for awhile now. Have only recently started to join in the conversations. What you’ve written here is Truth for me. I used to wish I could “flip” my good/bad day ratio. My bad (hungover) days were always so many, many more than the good days. 6:1, most weeks. Now it is 7:0, every week. That’s such a compelling figure, you’d think it would be a no-brainer to not drink again. And yet, it can still be such a struggle. Thanks for the reminder.

    • Hi! Thank you for leaving a comment…it’s nice to hear from you. 🙂 Even with all the good reasons, it is still a hard battle to fight. You are right. Sounds like you are winning now, though. It is worth it, especially when I remember the bad times. Being sober is much better! xx

  2. It has been suggested to me that I begin a gratitude list and write in it everyday. Thanks for sharing your happy Saturday morning.

    • I just started one in a special book that is only for that purpose…it is helping me stick to it more than I had in the past. So happy that I have all of you lovely folks to share things with. Thanks Fern! 🙂
