So, you got sober.
Well, first of all… CONGRATULATIONS! By cripes, you are an amazing sober rockstar! On a scale of one to ten YOU GO TO ELEVEN!
Now you have this NEW you, and this NEW life. But I’m wondering, did you ever find yourself asking…
“OK, SOBER UNIVERSE. WHAT NOW?”
SPOILER ALERT: I ASKED THIS A LOT. When I got sober, I spent a long time wondering just who in the heck I was, what I liked, what was “fun,” what made my heart go pitter-pat. For so long I had poured wine onto my dreams and watched them turn… well, winey.
I didn’t know how to dream anymore.
And now I was sober! The world was my sober oyster! I could do anything I wanted! All of my life now was going to end in an excessive amount of exclamation marks!
I was finally going to write the Great American Novel and run a marathon WHILE parenting clean, well-behaved children who are fantastically good looking!
It didn’t quite go to plan, my friends. In fact, this is an actual post that I slapped onto a private recovery group on facebook when I was newly sober:
Almost immediately, however, my sober friends quickly came to the rescue and encouraged me to keep at it, keep writing, the mojo WILL return! But, I kind of wish there had been someone to offer some specific and practical pointers on how to get UNstuck.
Do you feel the same? Do you have an idea that’s been percolating so long it’s turned to sludge? Is there a creative project that’s been gathering dust in your mind that deserves some attention? Finding your creative sober self can be tricky – A lot of sober folks can find find themselves asking,
“Well, since I stopped drinking my face off, what DO I like to do now… anyway?“
So… where do I go from here?”
I can show you.
The creative spark is there, my sober rockstar. It’s ready to be uncovered, right along with your new serenity.
