I know it’s still a ways off, but I’ve been thinking about next steps, about what to do at the end of these 100 days. (These Olympic Games? No, these 100 days. 😋) I’m a planner by nature, so naturally, I’m making plans.
No, I’m not contemplating an attempt at moderation. Been there, done that. A full on fuck-it relapse sounds better to me than an attempt at moderation. But, as luck would have it, I’m not contemplating that either.
I’m trying to decide what my next commitment will be. Belle usually suggests going to 180, but that didn’t work out very well for me last time, and since my word of the year is “change,” I want to do things differently. Even going to 200 might be enough of a change. I want to start seeing some personal bests.
Sometimes I contemplate making it a year too – do every life event at least once sober. That seems like a cool goal. But I don’t want to rile up The Voice and a full year commitment might do that. But maybe not. I haven’t heard much from The Voice lately. It’s been pretty peaceful inside my head.
There’s also the issue of this blog. It’s going to need a new name, for one. And I’m going to cut back on my posts. Daily posting has been an extremely helpful accountability tool for me, but the further down the road I get, the less I seem to have to say. And if that’s because the issue of drinking (or not drinking) isn’t on my mind as much, I think that’s a good thing.
I do think it’s important for me to continue blogging, however. If I just walk off into the sunset, my supports won’t be there when life throws me a curveball, which is sure to happen at some point. History repeats itself, right?
So that’s what’s been on my mind lately.
If anyone out there has a suggestion for a rename of the blog, I’d love to hear it.
