My number ONE belief in my Sobriety

Uncategorized Nov 04, 2020
 
I woke up today 3,000 days, Alcohol-Free, and I'm super proud of myself as anyone should be on their own journey.
 
I wanted to share one belief I have used since the start, and it must be shared.
 
Since day one, I have used this and keep with the mindset every day...
 
I have believed in myself every day since I started my sober journey. Every day has not been perfect, but I had kept the belief in myself when others didn't, that I could do one more day sober, and I kept going knowing that alcohol would never solve anything of my problems but add to them.
 
Believe in YOU every day of your journey because you are worth it.

National Sober Day

Uncategorized Sep 14, 2020

When I founded National sober Day back in winter of 2019, I really wanted to create a holiday that could celebrate Sobreity and add more awareness to the terrible disease of addiction. 

Here is what I wrote for the National Calendar Company for this amazing holiday.

NATIONAL SOBER DAY

National Sober Day on September 14th encourages us to celebrate Sober life and bring awareness to addiction. The entire day focuses on showing support for anyone living in sobriety. Not only that, but the observance sets a standard for the whole world that being sober is okay. Show your friends and family on the road to recovery by spending the day sober as well.

Ideally scheduled during National Recovery Month, the day supports removing the stigma associated with addiction. It opens the lines of communication that lead to better understanding. The day provides an opportunity to build educated support networks. It also strengthens existing ones. When systems are paved with an aware, loving,...

I even hit another huge milestone of making it 3,000 Days Sober.

This journey is not comfortable, but one that is so worth it.

The Importance of Exercise In Sobriety

Uncategorized Aug 03, 2020

Let’s face it, drinking alcohol isn’t doing you any favors. It’s shortening your life expectancy, causing stress on your vital organs, and let’s not forget about the uncomfortable hangovers. There are a number of factors alcohol plays on your body that cause long-term health problems. These range from dependency, to cancer, to damage to your major organs like your heart and liver just to name a few! 

Getting healthy is one of the biggest “why”s I see in wanting to get sober. 

Going sober is going to drastically change how you’re physically (and mentally) feeling on a daily basis. Finding a new exercise you enjoy doing is especially important now that you’ve given up the bottle to help take your mind off of it and to help you from relapsing, too.

Don’t worry about doing the ‘right’ workout. You can start as simple as walking the block, some basic yoga or pilates, or up it to your comfortability level....

Uncategorized Jun 07, 2020

Hey, Friend!

Are you are in a little funk currently because you are feeling stuck in your Sobriety/Recovery journey.

I get it. 

I've been on this road for eight years and have gone through being stuck, lows of self-doubt, and needing pep talks daily.

"Today, I've been sober for nine years.
Over the last nine years, my life has Continuously changed - like clay.
Taken from the very bottom & molded into something beautiful.

Sobriety has been very kind to me: forgiveness, marriage, kids, travels, college degrees, friendship, family. But most importantly, peace.

I am not perfect.
I am not the poster child for sobriety.
I am just... doing the best I can.
One day at a time.

If you're struggling- know that there is an army of people who want to see you succeed. Reach out. Your life is worth it.

Thanks for nine years on the sunny side of the street."

Congrats to you! Keep inspiring and kicking ass in your journey.

“9 YEARS SOBER!
I will always share the truth of my addiction story because there is an umbrella of silence hanging above those of us recovering from drug use, and we do not need to be ashamed!
But today, my heart feels called to talk about my recovery story!
.
I want to tell you how each morning I get to wake up in my bed and when the sun peeks through the window... there’s no more fear of not knowing how I will survive another day.
My body is no longer covered in abscesses, the track marks have mostly faded away, and as I look down at my hands, they aren’t swollen, dirty, and numb.
I have teeth in my smile and life in my eyes, and when I walk past a mirror, I am still in awe that the woman I see is me...
I have taken back the pen to my life, the power of my voice, and demanded my body be returned to me. My heart is full of love, my life is blessed with friends, and as I write this, I...

“Every day I wake up, I now have a choice of how I am going to live. In my active drinking career, I did not. I believe we all know the story of how it happens. Our stories are the fuel to our drinking, and when we get done telling the story of why we need to drink, we can then rewrite the story to how we no longer need to drink. For this to happen, we must realize the problem. My problem was alcohol and the incomprehensible demoralization that followed every time I drank. Towards the end, it was just downright U G L Y!

One day, my solution becomes the problem, and that problem led me to the solution-getting sober and entering into recovery. Eventually, after a few twenty-four hours, I found that I did not have to feel bad anymore. I found a group of like-minded people that showed me how to “live off the booze” and put the broken pieces of my life back together. I then...
