Day 180 – Beauty

In these cold, snowy, sober days I’m still managing to find beauty in everything. I’m trying (and sometimes failing) to let go of stress around home schooling my SD, trying to study myself and parent my beautiful baby.

I’ve found being sober, not sobering. I’m still laughing more, getting up early to do my yoga and skin care routine.

I’m getting joy out of online interactions with the sober community, starting to enjoy insta more and trying to pay back and support people like how I was supported.

I’m still feeling strong, happy and beautiful even if I am in jamas, no make up, unbrushed hair at midday (maybe slightly delusional).

I’m trying to be as positive as possible about the situation, enjoy this time, these moments in history.

So far it’s working. I’m replenishing myself, one beautiful moment at a time.

Hope everyone’s staying well and as happy as possible?

  1. I heard yesterday that my work from home might be extended to June.
    I so want that!!
    I’m doing a morning yoga and stretching practice and, although I missed today as I woke with a migraine, I know moving towards more daily routine is healthy for me.

    In the midst of it all I am very content here in my space, with a budgie flying overhead and a rabbit laying at my feet. I kind of feel like Snow White.

    Have a great day.

    1. I just read your post and could picture everything you wrote so vividly. Youve got such a wonderful way with words. Fingers crossed it stays until June. I really didn’t want to do yoga this morning, I’m struggling with it tbh. But always feel better after.

  2. Glad to hear you’re doing good and continuing your yoga and skin care routine. That’s excellent, JS! By the way it’s 12:33 pm here and I committed it to being a pj day🤪. I’m not going anywhere…it’s cold out there.

  3. It’s great that you’re sticking with your replenishing routines. So important for you. And I was thinking reading your post that maybe we’re the lucky ones because we’ve discovered that by stopping drinking we can do something positive for ourselves and others during these difficult and uncertain times.
