Today marks my one year being sober.

Today marks my one year being sober. It hasn’t always been easy. There have been several times I wished I could have a drink with friends. Or have a drink after a challenging day at work. Or because the day ended in a y. I wish I could drink and keep it under control. I just can’t.

For me, one was never enough. I had to have more. I’d think about the next drink before the current drink even arrived.

There are more times than I can count, I couldn’t remember how I got back to my room. So many blackout moments. Passed out moments.

My life today is drastically different.

I don’t have any crazy ass stories, as no crazy ass story starts of with, well, I was eating this salad…

Here is what I do have.

I have an amazing life! In addition to traveling the United States for work, I have also been to Lima, Peru, Bahamas, Cancun, and New York City all for fun! (Well the Bahamas was work related but it was amazing and I had lots of beach time, so that one was a complete win-win!)

In a month from today, I will be on a plane to Italy for my 40th birthday. Dream. Come. True.

I’ve made the most money I’ve ever made. I’m seriously building my eBay and Amazon business.

Life hasn’t always been easy.

I’ve had my heart broken, more than once.

I fight a food addiction, every single day.

Sober for a year now.

Life isn’t easy. You have to work hard everyday.

This life is what you make of it. It’s your choice.

Make Good Choices.

All my love.
