When I'm able to practice the pause and then open up on what's going on in that head of mine I'm then able to clear my mind and point towards a new direction. "I" can't do any of this alone bc I've tried countless times, but "We" can. Thank you @tpanigutti for sharing these words with me. #recoveryispossible #giftsofsobriety #letgoandletgod #godisgood #reallife #we #newbeginnings #2017❤️ #cle #cleveland #theland #edgewater #grateful #heavenly #cancersucks #fighter #perception #peace #perfect #friday

time to say goodbye to my jeep 😢😢 this was the first car I got after getting sober and not having a car for almost 3 years! we made some great memories together. the best memory I have tho, is being able to pass it down to one of my best friends in recovery who helped me get back on my feet when I was almost put back on the streets and literally minutes away from getting loaded again and now it gets to be his first car as well. it feels great to be able to help someone els in need these days instead of just taking from everyone around me! #sobriety #recovery #giftsofsobriety #sallyboy #jeepgrandcherokee #maxmuscle #skulls

It's so easy to get consumed by life and to forget who you're and what you stand for. That's why it's so important to stand your ground and be fierce like a hero. #godisgood #giftsofsobriety #cle #theland #2017❤️ #hero #powerful #worthit #strong #standoutfromthecrowd #recoveryispossible #cancersucks #beauty #letgoandletgod #sunset #memories #survivor

Sobritey has shown and taught me so much- especially the value of true friendships. I would be lost without these two. #bestfriends #giftsofsobriety

When you have to work a double shift & your sister in sobriety brings you this... I wouldn't trade this new life for anything. I love you, Katy! #giftsofsobriety

I took the scenic route home on Day 327. Yes, it took a little longer, but the payoff was so worth it...loud music, wind in my hair, the smell of the ocean, the gorgeous view. With some sobriety and clarity under my belt, I knew firsthand that the 'scenic route' was where the magic happens. Whether deliberate or by default, the scenic route was where I have found fulfillment. Getting from point A to point B could be a simple straight line, yes....but so much would be missed. The scenic route, although sometimes inconvenient or scary or confusing, was where I learned to practice patience, to trust my intuition, to challenge myself, to value the lessons, and appreciate all the beauty on my path. You never know what you will find. I'm so grateful for the detours and lovely scenery along the way. I'm taking the scenic route Home and I don't wanna miss a thing. #scenicroute #scenicroutehome #thejourneyhome #itsnotthedestinationitsthejourney #pch #sunandsurf #lovewhereyoulive #wherethemagichappens #fulfillment #practicepatience #trustyourintuition #lessonlearned #beautifulview #giftsofsobriety #takemehome #imready #momentum #shifthappens #dontwannamissathing #loveyourlife

You have a way of drawing me in and making me feel like I am the most special woman in the whole world. Everyday is getting easier to accept your love which is far beyond anything I could have ever hoped for or imagined ❤ #love #giftsofsobriety

"Forget regret-- or life is yours to miss. No other road. No other way. No day but today." Jonathan Larson I'm really good at regret, and a super A+ student at beating myself up for past mistakes. Words spoken, actions taken, that, I think, had I not done or said that things would be different. I've done and said stuff that caused pain and hurt and the best I can do today "is to take personal inventory and continue to set right any new mistakes as we go along." BB p. 84 Through the grace of God I have a program of action that teaches me how to take responsibility, set right any wrongs, make amends for my part, forgive myself and others, and live each day as if there is "no day but today." #odaat #giftsofsobriety #12steps #step10 #personalinventory #noregrets #livelife #sober #sobriety #loveheals #lovewarrior #amends #recovery #recoveryworks

Finding gratitude was easy on Day 325. Last year at this time, I was reminded all week how lucky I am to live where I do. Such amazing January weather in Southern California. What an incredible gift to live by the beach and have this spectacular view of the snowcapped mountains. I tried and tried to capture the majestic beauty myself on my way to work each day, but my knowledge and skills weren't enough. Sometimes you need to seek the help of others who have more tools and experience than you do to get what you desire. #lovewhereyoulive #socalmountains #surfandsnow #lifeguardonduty #snowcapped #majestic #surreal #unbelievable #godspaintbrush #januarysunshine #gratitudedaily #whataview #ohcalifornia #soberlife #giftsofsobriety #soberinthesun #feelsgoodman #goodmorninginsta #helpisoutthere #askforhelp #selfknowledgeavailsusnothing #humility #dowhateverittakes #desireobtaincherish #icherishmysobriety #notmyphoto #photocred

Today marks my three year sober anniversary. . This past year has been the most humbling year of my life. . Sobriety has sunk in and life in the raw can be overwhelming at times. FEELINGS can run rampant. . This year I worked with a meditation expert who taught me how to quiet my mind and find infinite beauty in the present moment. It's been a gift beyond measure. . I wrote and created this card about my own journey to sobriety. Willingness and courage were the keys for me to a new way of life...a life filled with hope instead of despair...a life of transparency instead of deceit. A life worth living. . Today is the day I got sober. I am thankful and blessed daily. I am always taken care of and I believe in the great spirit of the universe that I simply call God. 🙏🏻

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." -Marianne Williamson @mariannewilliamson #lights #thelightwithin #thislittlelightofmine #letyourlightshine #shinebright #lighttheworld #shineyourlight #liberatedheart #dontbeafraidtoshine #sparklysoul #smile #lightattheendofthetunnel #godisgood #childofgod #giftsofsobriety #day324 #oneyearago #mariannewilliamson #brilliantwords

Beauty is a personal perception!! What you see could be greatly different than what I see. That doesn't make either one of us wrong or right. #beauty #perception #eyes #godisgood #gooddirections #cle #theland #lovinglife #giftsofsobriety #letgoandletgod #recoveryispossible #memories #cancersucks #2017❤️ #country #seville #nature #heavenly #peace #serenity #motivate #sky

This made me think of things on many levels today. I am in England for my father in law's funeral, which is today. Emotional, love, bless. I am so proud to be sober and to be able to be the kind of wife I want to be. No one you love is ever truly lost, keep them in your heart. Keep those that are still using in your heart for they are never truly lost....it's never too late. Love, always, first.

I am in love with a book titled Small Graces by Kent Nerburn. A client gifted it to me, and frankly I haven't been able to read a book, cover to cover, in many, many years. Yet, this little gift from a client is pulling at me to read more. Here's an excerpt about echo that I just love. ❤️ . "Gradually I came to look upon that echo as my teacher...as my voice returned to me I would hear the joy or the sadness that lay beneath the meaning of whatever I had spoken. Isolated from context, and suspended in space, my words became music, and every nuance of intention and meaning was revealed. . To listen to that echo was to hear myself in the way that others heard me -- not my thoughts and ideas, but the plainsong of my heart. . A tinge of anger, an air of sadness, a catch in my throat, a tone to shrill -- all the truths I tried to hide were present in that echo. It was the mirror of my spirit. . I know that if I am speaking with deceit, deceit will be echoed back to me. If I am acting with anger, the echo of anger will return to me in the words and actions of others. . Likewise, if I find that am constantly cheerful, full of brightness and hope, or deeply contemplative in the presence of a particular person, I know that I am in the presence of a gracious spirit, and I am echoing the gift that is being given me." . What is your echo saying? Gratefully, my echo has shifted in the last few weeks from a quiet despair to glorious gratitude and abundant love. It can change that quickly.

2016 was underway. I didn't need you to make me happy. I didn't need alcohol to make me happy. It was all within Me. This could be my first full year sober since I was 13 years old....and as a matter of fact, it was! What a difference a year makes. #day318 #oneyearago #happynewyear #itsanewdawn #iloveyousomuch #ilovebeer #iloveme #loveyourself #selflove #worthit #makeyourownhappiness #happynomatterwhat #thejourneyhome #whatadifferenceayearmakes #giftsofsobriety #soberlove #freedom #serenity #graffitigram #ilove2016

There were small cakes and big smiles... Full bellies and full hearts. Two years ago yesterday my life started again. I was given a choice - keep going and die, or wake up. Accept love into my heart and let the people around me love me when I didn't know how. I couldn't have imagined I had it in me to love like this. And I'm free. The journey has only just begun... #giftsofsobriety #journey #inward #grateful #cake #yum #love #friendship 😍💜🙏🤗 I used to think I was broken. Missing a piece - others seemed to understand something I didn't about what being here means... This year I learned that suffering is what makes us truly human; is what binds us to the rest of humanity. We spend so much energy trying to convince the world we're not suffering out of fear we'll get left behind if we let them know where the pain is or that it's here at all... And in that we keep ourselves from each other. The thing we all need to admit is that if we allowed ourselves to see each other's suffering, it would have no need to exist anymore. Because all we really want in the end is to be heard. To feel understood. To feel loved. Imagine if we all just decided to allow it to happen... By giving each other what we want for ourselves. Listen. Understand. Love. Then we'd be equal. As long as we believe we're missing something - we seek connection based on what we see around us - we condemn ourselves to the opposite; what we feel is separation. From ourselves, each other, our desires and our dreams... everything you think you need, that you believe you have to reach outside yourself to touch... It's there already. You need only quiet yourself long enough to hear. From this space... We come to see that there really is no place where 'you' ends and 'I' begins.

Today when I'm able to get out of self and be open to others telling me how selfish my thoughts are @mikebeachphoto (even though at the time I don't want to hear it) I feel the change and growth. For that I'm grateful. It's an amazing feeling to know I have people in my corner today that actually care and not BC of what they can get from me. This has been an amazing journey so far. I've learned that I deserve to be happy too. #giftsofsobriety #godisgood #letgoandletgod #realfriends #happyme #cancersucks #cle #theland #memories #selfie #mommypride #family #recoveryispossible #prayer #happyending
