In my entire 20 something years I have only ever been a little bit tipsy, or some what sedated from the consumption of alcohol. I’d go to clubs and see girls and guys falling over them selves, slurring anything that popped into their heads, throwing up over the toilet, or sitting alone drunk and defeated in a corner, and would always (somewhat judgmentally) ask ‘how and why do people let themselves get like this?’ Well (in my case) the answer to that question is, Half a bottle of wine and 2 Gin Martini’s on an empty stomach! Last night I was that girl, slurring ‘I love you’ and any other thought that came into my mind to anyone that would listen, propositioning every guy and girl I saw (to dance! I weren’t that drunk hehe) dancing uncontrollably, and by the end of night I was the girl throwing up over a toilet bowl in the clubs crowded ladies toilet! And I know most people, from my Mum, to every dating advice guru, or self improvement guide, would advice that “that is NOT the way to go”, and that I should probably feel mortified this morning, but do you know what, it felt absolutely liberating! I’m not saying that I’m going to make a habit of it, or that I even disagree with ‘the dating advice guru’s, or self improvement guide’s’. But one resolution I’ve always had and am still yet to meet, is to be free to be my most authentic self and to stop seeking approval, and if it took 2 Martini’s and half a bottle of wine to help usher me into the New Year with my resolution in tact, then that’s all good. Now I just have to work on maintaining a natural high!
