So I got a mole map done last week and I have over 100 moles and they documented 39!! And I just go the all clear that none of them are of any concern which is great peace of mind. Kinda doesn’t have anything to do with sobriety but kinda does because this sort of self-care (along with regular dentists visits and so on) is definitely way better now that I’m not boozy and disconnected.
Now… I need to do another shout-out and plea for more photos to be emailed to me please for our ‘Silly Season Survival Guide’ pictorial post. I have some absolutely gorgeous ones but I reckon we need a few more to make a really cool post, so come on you lot – send a pic off your phone to firstname.lastname@example.org !!
For those of you don’t know what this is.. it’s a Pictorial Post that I am going to publish here this coming weekend.. full of images from community members, things in your home or environment that gives you strength/makes you feel good/inspires you/nourishes you as you navigate through the Silly Season. Because this time of year is tricky for us sober people, especially those new to sobriety. Booze is every-bloody-where, at every end of year party and work do and certainly on Christmas day and NYE. We are brave and amazing for forging through sober, and we need to remember to have things around us to help keep us feeling good and strong and focussed on why we’re quitting drinking. So please email me a photo of something in your home or environment that is important or meaningful for you. Is it your cat? Your view? Your kids? A special book? A quiet spot in the neighbourhood? Your shed? For inspiration take a look at what members sent in 2 years ago when I first did this post. https://livingsober.org.nz/silly-season-inspirations/
This post will be really cool as it’ll give us a glimpse into each others lives .. and of course we can also get ideas of other things we can use to inspire us or make us feel good and strong.
Email your photo to me (as large a size file as possible) at email@example.com and make sure you tell me your username and also give me a line or two about what you are sharing and why.
Thanks in advance everyone!
Off to walk the dog then get the kids from school. Feeling very tired because the thunderous rain woke me at 5am but hey – no hangover so can’t complain! x
File sent…well done on the moles.cSounds like a thing that we should have done here.
