This past weekend, I had the pleasure of participating in a running event with some girlfriends. Over the last several months, I had been working towards achieving a particular time goal. With the help of a selfless friend (meaning she ran the race with me and while she could have gone much faster, she chose stay with me to help me meet my goal), I achieved my goal. This was a huge gift and an incredible act of kindness for which I will always be grateful. This is why I love running, my running tribe and the running community.
Finally, something has clicked for me in a big way. After seeing how I reaped the benefit of working with someone on a goal this past weekend, I have decided to take this fun fact and apply it to my other goal of not drinking.
Today I begin meeting with one of two groups that will talk about our relationship with alcohol. I am over the moon that these groups are available and local to me. It will be so nice to connect with others and share with you what I learn.
Additionally, I will be launching a sober curious challenge via a private facebook group beginning in January. If you or someone you know is looking to give being sober a try, there will be a 30 day, 60 day and 90 challenge. Anyone can join and we can support one another in our efforts. For me, this will be a wonderful way to be held accountable as well as supporting others. This will be a compassionate and non-judgmental space for us to share what we feel and our challenges and it is private. There will be more information coming soon. If you are interested, send me a message).
Thanks as always for reading. I wish all of you a wonderful week.
Next week, I will share how I get through a few holiday parties this weekend. Lots of love. XO
