Well well well. It has been quite a long time! Life has a funny way of really getting away from you. So here is what has been happening in the last 6 months:
First and most important change is that I MOVED BACK TO THE US. I am not entirely sure about how I feel about the move but I am working through it. When I created this blog I was living in a European country and had been for quite some time. I have moved to the Northeastern United States and have to say it is pretty nice here.
Another big change is that…you guessed it. I was not able to maintain my sobriety. Dun Dun Dun. I am not discouraged though. I have actually been fairly responsible with my drinking recently, although it is clearly that time again for me to think about some self care.
It seems in recent months I am being drawn towards first taking care of myself spiritually and working on my anxiety and physical health.
I am still in graduate school and I am making progress towards the end goal of graduating in the next spring semester. I need to really buckle down and focus on healing myself and figuring out what triggers my anxiety and health problems.
While I may not be sober everyday right now, I am working on myself and figuring out a way to exist in a realm of happiness, rather than the dark cloud negativity I have been hiding under for so long. I have been sober two days and that itself is a win.
So here I am. Present. Sober.
Now to go to 5 hours of homework and make some gratitude lists later tonight!
