It's been an overly social week-end. It has left me a bit unfocused, so much so I didn't honor or celebrate my 3-Month Sobriety date on the 16th. It doesn't feel as big as 2 months. But it is! It is, a forth of a year. 90 days, three months. A demarcation of time passed; new habits and outlooks cultivated.
How should I celebrate? What would be a celebratory event or activity? I need ideas. Maybe taking time to spell check my hastily written past blog posts. So un-profesh. I post and don't look back. Or maybe something that I wouldn't find the energy for while I was drinking?
Per my title, I have not graduated, I will not graduate from Sobriety School. Sobriety can't be crossed off my To Do List. Sobriety isn't something I did. Not water under the bridge. It's one more exercise I practice: along with yoga, meditation, jogging and weights. Intentional but not obsessive. Focused but not tunneled-vision.
