Today is one of those days that I miss a little ocean therapy.
My stomach is still churning a tiny bit from yesterday which goes down in history as the worst hangover of my entire life. This is not an exaggeration. I am seriously pondering where alcohol plays a role in my life now. There are plenty of nights that I have drank the same amount + WAY MORE and woke up the next day feeling like a MILLION bucks. Yesterday was NOT one of those nights. I debated finding one of those hangover IV spots but I couldn’t bring myself to go outside. I was in bed all day & night and finally woke up the next day as a survivor of that bullshit. However, now I need to figure out what all y’all sober kids do to replace alcohol or to provoke some type of ’sober drunk’ that makes you feel 100% alright with not partaking in the activity.
Back it up just a little bit and let me give a little background info for those of you that don’t know me on a day-to-day basis. I don’t really drink all that much. I sometimes like to have a drink on a plane or a couple glasses of red wine while I relax. I very occasionally will go out and have some cocktails or some whiskey gingers + beer. But in the span of a month, I really don’t actually drink much. Drinking is not a defined hobby of mine. However, it can be a good time and I am trying to figure out how I can keep the good times rollin’ without keepin’ the drinks flowing’ through my body. Ya feel me?
So do I just drink shirley temples and pretend their vodka cranberries and rely heavily on the placebo effect? Please teach me your way sober kiddos.
As I ponder this big personal life question I cannot help but CRAVE some ocean therapy. One of my favorite things about living a 5-minute walk from the beach was being able to be completely alone and dive into the water and take in the Hawaii scenery. Something about the clear blue Hawaii ocean water refreshed me and made me feel like every little thing was gonna be alright. I guess you could say it was kind of a security blanket for me in times that I felt like I had to make some major life decisions. I also loved being able to pitch up my hammock and read a book. That is my favorite kind of solitude.
