“Everyone can perform magic, everyone can reach his goals, if
he is able to think, if he is able to wait, if he is able to fast.”
― Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha
As I’ve stated before I recently started a new job. Well with a new job comes new coworkers and for me new germs. I actually managed to not catch the cold that was going around for a couple months. That cold was something else it zapped my energy like cold to a battery. My sleep cycle has been finally been catching up and I’ve felt good enough to go out or stay after work for a drink. Unfortunately, I’ve noticed another zap to my energy. After some research, yesterday, I have a feeling my liver could use a rest, after a strict flow of cold medicine and a few to many cocktails. (I’m not jaundice or anything! just tired!) I thought it too perfect that today is the beginning of a new month and even more fitting that Lent begins on the 5th, so I begin my at least month long trek into the sober world. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not getting wasted every night or not even every month, I just don’t think having a drink after work is going to help my liver repair itself. So, it begins my battle of my own will. I had planned to only do a month without alcohol but now the idea is to continue for lent. I’m excited. This is probably the most difficult challenge for me. I have to have faith that I will not falter. I hope that it positively affects my health and that I can do this.
We shall see!
