Today is my anniversary, two years ago I decided to stop drinking alcohol. There wasn’t declaration, not a big proclamation to friends and family or even a post, just an inner desire for a better life. Just to be clear I am not telling anyone what they should or shouldn’t do and a large majority of my friends are drinkers, so there’s no judgement. I just wanted to share a little of my experience with alcohol.
I decided two years ago that I wasn’t going to have another drink until I had a good reason to... and I haven’t since. Through assessing my desire to drink with the test of “is this a good reason?” I noticed that each time I felt the urge I uncovered truths about my drinking habits and myself. I realized I used alcohol to overcome social anxiety when going out and mainly on the weekends to escape the stress of my life.
I debated whether or not to share this with you all today. There was some fear of judgment and I also wasn’t trying to gain praise or attention for this commitment I made to myself but there was one reason- I wanted someone who was where I was two years ago to see there is another way. You can take control of your life, you can face your fears and overcome them if you want to.
The past two years of my life have been the best. I have a blast, I am more present, spontaneous, in the moment, I dance my ass off and I remember it all with no hangovers- EVER!
I want any person who is feeling like their world is too overwhelming to take a breath (do it, take a nice, long, deep breath with me) and know that someone else has been there.
Listen to your inner guidance, and if you feel led to change a habit or stop drinking know that there are lots of resources available to you.
I am gonna blow the lid off this right now. Most people don’t know this but there are MANY known people out there who don’t drink or barely drink. Google it or swipe over to see a few who don’t.
I haven’t been to an AA meeting to but I have heard they say that “everyone leans on something.” So let’s lean on each other and support one another drinkers and non-drinkers alike and with that, thank you for supporting me.

Have you ever started a project you weren't sure you should finish?
What IS and What IF. One we seem to operate from and the other is our reality
It’s important to develop the emotional intelligence to stop yourself in a “what if” situation and identify that you’re operating in that state then correct it to the “what is” mindset
When we course correct that behavior it allows us to see more clearly, get out of our own head and take action to the “what is” and be productive operators in life
Too often we default to the “what if” state of mind and we handicap ourselves because we get so stuck there and it causes us false, unnecessary stress, anxiety & pain. The “what if’s” are stories of the imagination. “What is” is the fact of life and life is what we are here for to learn, grow, succeed and become.

Hey ihr Lieben🥰
gibt es ein gehyptes Buch, wo ihr den Hype nicht wirklich verstehen könnt?
Ich habe in letzter Zeit total oft das Gefühl gehabt, dass ich den Hype um einige Bücher nicht verstehen konnte und deswegen ab jetzt etwas vorsichtiger bin 🙈
Burning Bridges, Flying High und Someone New gehören auf jeden Fall zu den Büchern, wo ich den Bookstagram Hype echt nicht verstehen konnte 🙈
Ich wünsche euch allen einen wunderschönen Abend ♥️
Lanjutan ceritanya sudah ada lo...😘 Selamat menikmati... 🙏
