Being Brave

1 Aug

Being Brave

I’m on Day 3, and I’m feeling on top of the world not drinking.

For the first time, something clicked in my head, and it reminded me how I’ve got out of difficult situations in the past: being brave and acknowledging they’re not working for me.

Last year, I got myself out of 2 abusive relationships that have caused me trouble for well over a year, one romantic and one work.

How did I change that? I fully embraced that they were negative and unhealthy for me, and I took the courage to step out of them.

That’s what I’m doing for the next 97 days of this 100 day challenge. Stepping out of that abusive relationship with alcohol. If I get to 100 days and want to leap back into his arms, (he being red wine…) then fantastic. But until then, I’ll be brave and enjoy the view from the outside of his tight embrace.
