Moving from OutSourcing to SelfSourcing my own joy. What drinking less has shown me in 5 weeks.

By Åsa Nilsson | June 22, 2023

I am now half way through my 9 weeks of skin medicine and being told that drinking was “off the table” otherwise the meds would not work. 

What did I discover about myself when I was given a directive of, ‘You can’t … ‘

What have I now been shown in this time about how I feel? Freaked out? Feeling like I am missing out? Feeling any peer pressure? 

Nahhhh. Complete opposite. 

I feel fantastic. 

What has become apparent is that I needed something outside of myself to shove me in the direction I already knew I needed to go in. I was given the answer that I asked for. 

See how I OUT-SOURCED my answers when I could have SELF-SOURCED? 

Ahhh, the journey continues.
