Gratitude Challenge

Goodness gracious - Day 17

O.K. Well these last few weeks have been such a blur. Really busy trying to balance the kids at home during the summer with a more than full time job. Luckily, I do a lot of writing and social media, which can all be done from the house. But I still get frazzled. I honestly haven't even felt the need to have a drink. If I do, I reach for a non-alcoholic Becks or think about the Instagram community I've become party of (I'm on at 100daysofsober). I don't want another Day 1 - but more than that, I don't want to announce to my #soberfam that I failed them. @gr8tful_yogi says it's accountability - and I realize I never had that before.

On previous attempts to cut out alcohol or go dry for a period, I may announce it to my husband or a friend or two. But no one was really holding me accountable - so if I decided to have a glass of wine at dinner or drink during a girls' night no one really said anything. To be fair, I never said, "I really want this in my life. I need to do this." I always just positioned it as something I wanted to try because I thought I would feel better.

Anyway, I'd love to hear from you if you've started a FB page or a blog or Instagram account where you feel accountable for announcing if you slip up.

And I also found a limoncello mocktail from Sprouts that is awesome. It comes in a fancy bottle and isn't too sweet.

I have been sleeping pretty good but still feeling so groggy in the morning. It takes me a while to wake up. I hear about people who literally bounce out of bed but I'm not there yet.

O.K. Recently on Instagram I announced some fun giveaway items from Positively Present and Cultivate What Matters. This week, I'll announce one more items that we are giving away as part of the #gr8tful28 challenge. Come check it out and join us! xoxo Kim
