Day 250 of the journey

Now I told Prim that I hated musicals and here I’ve posted up just that!!  Me, contradictory much? 😉

I took my children to see Frozen over Christmas and my daughter has been playing songs from the film to death ever since.  The thing is I LOVE this song and it brings tears to my eyes almost every time I hear it.  It just resonates so deeply somehow with this journey.

So at day 250 I’m letting go.  It is what this journey is ultimately about I am beginning to think and feel.

Thank you for being on the journey with me.  I wouldn’t be here without you 🙂 xx

  1. Frozen isn’t a *musical*. it is a handbook for LIFE 🙂 🙂

    and don’t you just love her running up the stairs which aren’t there? trusting they will be under her feet when she needs them, and they are. just like every day getting sober.

    250 days – fantastic! keeps getting better, huh?! lots and lots of love to you dear Lucy! xxx

  2. Ha! I love this song, too! And it makes me cry. Glad I’m not alone 😉 It’s weirdly apt, isn’t it? So many of the lines. Have to confess that I sometimes play it when my daughters are not around and sing along just for me, and believe me when I say I really can’t sing. I like to give my all to line “The past is in the past… let it go” Hope my neighbours haven’t heard me. Thanks for this post, it’s put a smile on my face. Congrats on 250! Just fab 🙂 xx

    1. Hey MTM My daughter caught me listening to it yesterday and was like ‘why are you watching that Mummy?’ Busted! 😉 xx

  3. Just beginning day 3 (again) I’m so afraid. “Let it go, let it go…” Huh? How?

  4. Yay!! 250 is fanfreakingtastic. You’ve “let it go”. My 4 yr old granddaughter can really belt out this song with me, Grammy, doing the background. Congrats.

  5. Congratulations, Lou!! What an accomplishment! I’ve been surprised by the immense change between Day 1 and Day 100 (I’m on 112 now). Really, it’s like night and day, and I can’t imagine going back. Is there much change between Day 100 and Day 250? I hear sobriety keeps getting better and better. Do you feel different from the way you did a few months ago? And if so, how? Just curious.

    My 18-year-old daughter convinced me to see Frozen with her. I was skeptical about two grown women watching a Disney movie, but I loved it! We were both cheering and singing by the end. Let It Go is now our theme song. Girl power!! 🙂 Congratulations again! Keep going strong!

    1. Hi Julie Congrats on your 112 days too and thank you 🙂 As you say it just keeps getting incrementally better as the behaviour change becomes more normal. I still have up and down days and seeing as I used alcohol to regulate my emotions these can feel more extreme at times! I am more calm generally and see things much more clearly. Belle often talks about being able to rely on yourself and I didn’t get this for a long time but now I do. I grew up feeling not able to trust people and by drinking it meant I couldn’t trust myself either but now I do and can. Yes the urge to drink is still around but it is less and less and I feel free and present all of the time. Before I only felt free when I drank but I had created a prison of my own making. I wouldn’t go back now not for all the champagne in France! 😉 xx

  6. Hi there, I just wanted to add that this song came on in our local supermarket and every little girl (and parent) in there started singing it! Gorgeous moment.
    Thanks for the smile and congratulations on 250 days. I’ve just subscribed to your blog and look forward to reading it.

    1. Hi Annie Thank you for reading, commenting and subscribing 🙂 It’s a great song isn’t it? Disney really know how to do their thing!! I hope you enjoy the blog and let me know how you find it.
