I had a drink! Actually more than one!

Good morning,

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  This has been a nice weekend but it’s not over yet.  Currently I’m sitting on the couch with my wife and kids.  My kids are watching Cars 3 and we are sharing a moment together.  There is something nice about just sitting together.  This past Friday night I went to see a Star Wars with a couple of my guy friends.  It was a late night, the movie didn’t start till 10:45. First of all I can’t even remember the last time I went to the movies that late.  I have to be honest I’m not a huge fan of Star Wars, but this movie was amazing.  I don’t know if I’m just more open to trying new things and actually taking them in more but it does make experiences a lot different.  I went to bed at 2am and I only got 5 hours of sleep. My wife was so worried that my mood would be grumpy.  The funny thing is that I thought to myself exactly the same thing.  I don’t function well with little sleep.  Yesterday I was aware and made a choice right away.  I made a choice to be positive and be light with my mood.  The day continued and I was tired but I needed to accomplish everything I had planned. I wasn’t going let anything get in my way even myself.  Around 3pm my son and I watched Sandlot I feel a sleep and took a nap.  I can’t even remember the last time that happened.  I guess my body was telling me something that I needed to do.   

After I took my rest I went to the gym and ran a couple errands.  At 9pm my wife and I went to dinner at this amazing restaurant Schwa with a couple of amazing people.   Yesterday was the first time I had a drink in 50 days.  It was something that I’ve been thinking about for the past couple days.  Yesterday I decided it was going be the day I try to start again.   I believe I did a pretty good job with managing my consumption.  This morning I do feel the effects.  It’s a lot harder to start my day.  Alcohol makes me lazy.  I don’t like being lazy.  I believe I can drink but I enjoy having clarity and being able to function at high level more.  We as humans can control our own destiny by the choices we make.   Today I’m owning my choices and I’m not letting them control me.  I am going to finish sharing and go work out.  Then I will having a nice remaining Sunday with my family.  One thing that I saw this morning was a quote from Yoda from Star Wars.

Today make a choice do or do not.  Simplicity at it finest.
