“Fun Fact: I went all of 2018 without having a sip of alcohol”
Fun Fact: I went all of 2018 without having a sip of alcohol. And when I tell people that, their reaction tends to be a mix of impressed, surprised, and/or shocked. And here’s the thing, I’ve never been a big drinker so taking something like this on really wasn’t hard for me.
If anything, it was honestly really empowering because I finally owned it. In the past, I would have a drink just to fit in or order one so I could avoid the barrage of questions that would usually come if I didn’t.
And I’m not anti alcohol at all. If you want to have a drink, I’ll cheers with you. I just might do it with water instead of a cocktail. And if I decide I want some champagne this weekend for my birthday (35 my friends! And I’m accepting gifts…), I’ll have it.
Because that’s the gift of this experience. It’s being able to choose what really feels good for me instead of going along with what I think will feel good for others.
Now let me know if you want my address to send me presents…
