New Year, New Me

Things are becoming a little more normal around the house without our beloved pet. It’s been a month now since I’ve moved to the city. I’m learning to get around more. I’m not getting lost as often. Also I’m using the gps less to get to the places I need to go.

I use to drive almost 2 hours one way to work. After driving and working 12 hours I didn’t have any time to do much. Now I’m blessed that my job is approximately 4 miles away. I now have time to do more times like work on myself.

A few of the things that I have been working on is my weight. I’ve been going to the gym and also have been attending a few jui jitsu classes. I’m slowly seeing some progress and it’s amazing. My work scrubs are fitting better and I have more energy to do things.

Another thing I have been working on is calligraphy. It’s calming to my soul and peaceful. I’ve noticed that my normal handwriting is improving also.

I’m trying to attend more meeting here in the city. If you have read any of my other posts you would know I miss my home group meeting but I’m trying my best here. It’s harder to make new friends in the city versus the country.

Living in the country it was just my son and I. It was easier to keep the house clean because we both cleaned up after ourselves. Now I’m living with my boyfriend and he is sort of a pig. He blames it on being a bachelor for a few years. It drives me crazy. So I’m having to spend time cleaning more. This is not something I like to do but I’m calm within my when things are organized and clean. Disorganization causes me anxiety.

I’m also trying to start my days off with a more positive thinking. After I finish my morning mediation I search for positive quotes to keep me motivated throughout the day. I probably should buy a motivational calendar. I’m open to suggestions if anyone has a favorite one.

So working on a new me for this new year. While I’m doing a lot on other things my main focus is still the same. To remain sober and take things one day at a time.
