My bro sent me this stunner of a picture recently .. here I am, passed out at the after party of my 40th birthday party. This is probably about 3am. Thankfully, I have lipstick on but I have no recollection of it being taken or where I actually was.
I read lots of posts about people considering moderation because they have a special birthday coming up, or a holiday, or an event they can’t imagine doing sober.
Well just consider this for a second - would you rather look fresh, feel fresh, remember every moment & enjoy the time with your friends & family, or would you rather be a passed out corpse like this with vague, sketchy memories of a special occasion? I know which I would prefer.
‘They’ say ‘life begins at 40’ but at 40, mine was in full on downward spiral mode. Actually, what ‘they’ should say is ‘we all have two lives. The second one starts when you realise you only have one’.
I’ve been writing since I got home & it made me think of Friday nights gone by. I can’t honestly believe I’d come home from work, get changed, then go out drinking & smoking til 3am! The concept feels so alien!
Hope you’re having a good one .. looking forward to the Poole meet up tomorrow .. please do a sun dance if you get a mo .. the forecast is rain & we want to walk on the beach! 💃🏻🌞🏖
