27th January, 2012, 7.20am
I weathered the storm of yesterday by reaching out to others, staying focused and not secluding myself from the world.
I didn’t allow my mind to take over, to isolate myself with a bottle of white wine.
Instead, I stuck to my commitments, made more commitments and spoke to more people than I would normally.
No resentment of lost time in my home, away from the sanctuary of the bottle and the dulling of my mind.
Instead, I wake up on a Saturday morning blissfully healthy with my cats feeling safe, secure and clean.
A vast difference from last Saturday.
For that I am grateful.
