So thankful to have people in my life that will go above and beyond for me in a time of need. And it's such a blessing being able to do the same in return for them. 💙 #blessed #bestfriends #sobriety #recovery #blessings #giftsofsobriety

The old me would set goals and never accomplish them. I would start things and never finish them. Today I set goals and accomplish them. I start things and finish them.

Transparency Tuesday. I used to be THE most inconsistent person. I never kept my commitments and never showed up on time. I found it nearly impossible to stay true to my word, mostly because I didn't believe them before they even came out of my mouth. I had zero self worth or self confidence and was always blaming someone or something else for my not showing up, even for myself. Actually, placing blame was probably the only thing I did consistently besides drinking. After almost two years of sobriety I have realized that consistency is one of the greatest gifts I can give, not only to others, but to myself. The more I give it, the more I automatically attract into my life. I also choose to surround myself with the doers, the givers and the lifters. I have a long way to go but I am so far from where I have been. #progressnotperfection #beit #transformationtuesday #daretobetransparent #speakyourtruth #wedorecover #consistency #perserverence #knowyourworth #youdeserveit #giftsofsobriety

For so long I thought I was setting great examples for my children. Till I got sober I realized I wasn't. They watch everything we do even when we think their not. Today it's very important to me that I set good standards for my girls. Ultimately it's going to shape them into the beautiful and strong women they will become. #giftsofsobriety #mylife #godisgood #motherdaughter #newaddition #cle #theland #imitate #standard #strength #fighter #heroinsucks #cancersucks #godswill #cleveland #recoveryispossible

I seen this on @trentshelton Facebook page and it definitely jumped out at me today. I really need to make sure to put more energy into focusing on my faith rather than my circumstances bc I know God's got me. #giftsofsobriety #godisgood #faith #strength #circumstances #cle #theland #rehabtime #letgoandletgod #motherdaughter #recoveryispossible #mylife #mygirl #cleveland #twinning

I've been playing piano since I was 7 so learning the guitar is challenging. I was given this beautiful electric guitar, amp, and equipment from a good friend who told me it was a gift for my sobriety. Learning an instrument is a solid idea for someone in early recovery. It keeps you out of your own head and is rewarding when you see progress! #learningguitar #giftsofsobriety #staybusystayclean #recovery #sobermom

This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy.

H.O.M.E - about 5 years ago I was sitting on a barstool dreaming that one day I'd move to Bozeman, MT. For the following 3.5 years all I did was talk about it but never actually did anything to bring it to fruition. In August of last year I was able to make this barstool dream a reality. This along with so many other things is a gift of sobriety. Grateful that I now get to call this beautiful state my home and this is the view I get to wake up to every morning✨

This smart, creative beauty is a St Patty's Day baby. 9 years old! It's Spring Break here, and her dad's year for that week, but I got to pick her up for 3 hours to celebrate. She picked @chickfila for dinner, then a trip to @petsmart to check out the cute kitties. She'll be my child with 100 cats, she loves them so much but both her dad AND stepdad are allergic. One day, sweet thing. We're at the park now for our last hour, then back to her dad's. ❤️❤️❤️ Gifts of sobriety come in big and small packages. This is a big one. I'm so incredibly thankful that I get to be here. . . . #soberlife #momlife #momblogger #catlovers #birthdaygirl #birthday #stpatricksday #stpattysbirthday #sober #sobertogether #soberevolution #sobermovement #sobriety #giftsofsobriety #motherhood #raisinggirls #onedayatatime #odaat #grateful #divorcedmom #9yearsold #recovery

I spent so many years of my life trying to be what I thought everyone else wanted me to be. I no longer had an identity. Little did I know that whole time the ones that really cared about me just wanted me to be me. Today that's just what I am, I am myself. #giftsofsobriety #godisgood #selfie #cle #theland #mylife #beauty #recoveryispossible #godswill #change #newbeginning #cancersucks #fighter #heroinsucks #cleveland

Today, I'm celebrating one full year sober. I wanted to post a progress pic but that didn't do much justice to the overall progress [not perfection]. • Two years ago, I was malnourished, unable to eat, to sleep for more than 90 minutes without waking up shaking, depressed, wanting to die, living in chaos, pushing away all my loved ones. • One year ago I was grasping at straws. Wanting my life back. I would get my appetite for 10-15 min at a time and eat whatever I could to hold me over. My face was covered in acne. I finally surrendered. I was willing to do whatever it took to live a happy life. • Today, I'm filled with gratitude. It has been snowing all day and I walked a mile as a half round trip to the gym, instead of using this snow day as an excuse to day drink or stay in bed all day. I'm so happy. I've been receiving texts from my sober friends. Filled with gratitude. Finding inspiration in every person I meet. • I share the physical pics because maybe this is what it takes for someone to decide to put down the drink and reach out. I'm happy to share my insides. My soul. The little space God sits and hangs out and shines from. I'm happy to share with you how close I am with my family today, how honest we are with each other. I'm happy to tell you about the philosophical books I read and swap with the true friends I have today. I'm happy to tell you what it feels like to have a community of likeminded individuals who inspire me daily, who support me, who help me before I ask. I'm happy to have a right sized ego (despite this post?) that I'm not afraid to ask for help. I tell the truth. I speak my mind, from a kind place. I'm happy to know I am NOT "less than," that I don't suck at things, that I'm not the worst, that I'm not left out. I am right sized. Exactly as I am supposed to be. Where I am supposed to be. Doing what I am supposed to do. I'm happy to share my relationship with God. I'm happy. • I'm so happy. Happy, joyous, and free. • Thank you for letting me share ❤️

Outfit of the day! But this isn't just any outfit. This is literally my favorite shirt right now. Check out matter.apparel. Now let me give you a little back story. Not only are their clothes kick a**, but what really got me is what their company is about . Read the shirt. Simple saying right? But it's more then that. YOU matter. I matter. WE matter. There is a reason for our existence. Don't let anyone ever make you doubt why you are here on this earth. I am finally discovering my purpose. There is no time limit as to when you figure life out. Heck, I don't think anyone ever figures what life is all about. But it's about the journey. And we need to take this journey together. Check them out. They are absolutely incredible and their designs are perfect. I will be ordering the hat next, lol. It's hard to meet down to earth people, but they have surely surpassed my expectations and I am ready for them to kick this journey with me, but most importantly kick their journey with them! Check out their Instagram. Gear it up with me because I am going to be wearing this shirt until it falls off me lol. No really, though. Not to mention the color is super cute. You.matter apparel. ❤😜🤙🏼

My days are long, some days are hard, some days I want to give up or even quit but things are always changing, people are coming and going, the world is loud but keeps spinning and my heart is fulfilled with the unconditional love for my tiny human. Sometimes it isn't easy, sometimes it feels impossible. It's all worth it, everything I do is for her! I want her to feel safe, I want her to feel unconditional love and love unconditionally, understand emotions, feel important, know she is kind, know I will always support her, be her own person, to never be ashamed to be herself and respect others for being themselves. #doingmybest #nevergiveup #giftsofsobriety #sobermom #raisethemright #momlife #blessed #priorities #tinyhuman #thefuture #aurorajean

If you asked me 12 months ago what my relationship was like with my mom, I'd tell you it's horrible, no relationship, she doesn't trust me and never gave me a chance. I'd tell you I didn't think she gave a shit about me . Today I'd tell you my mom is my best friend and I don't know what I'd do without her. I talk to her about everything and we have built our trust back. She has given me unlimited chances I just wasn't ready to take them seriously. My mom did what she thought was best for me to help me open my eyes and see what damage I was doing to my life. She has given me the world and a handful more. It took me getting sober and staying sober to getting where I am today. 11 months is only the beginning because I wouldn't trade the relationships i have today for any drug or alcohol🙂 I love my life. #giftsofsobriety #sober #soberrocks #momanddaughter #bestfriend #happy

Today felt like a breath of fresh air. 💕 I got to dive into some deep soul work with one of my precious soul sisters. I got to be in a room filled with people who are trying to heal and be the best they can be. I got to lend an ear to someone who really just needed someone to listen. And I'm so filled with gratitude that I can see what a blessing this is. My daughter and I ended the day with the never ending game of monopoly filled with laughs and tea cups filled with ice cream. I feel the potential new world that will arise if I stay open and honest to this healing and I'm excited. 💕 - Katrina MacIsaac #sobriety #soberlife #soberliving #coda #beautiful #soulsisters #giftsofsobriety #meaningoflife #compassion #love #poetry #inspiration #letgoandletgod #odaat #healing #healingcrystals #selfcare #selflove #tothineownselfbetrue #weareone #fellowship #sobersisters #womenwhorunwiththewolves #shadowwork #healer #thewoundiswherethelightshinesthrough

Life is filled with joy and pain. Some of the pain is caused by our own making. We have the option to live with that pain or to do something about it by changing. I've been told when the pain is great enough change will occur. When I rely on self my life can get pretty miserable. When I rely on God life is beautiful!! He gives me the key to change as long as I put in the work. #giftsofsobriety #godisgood #change #cle #theland #edgewater #mylife #recoveryispossible #letgoandletgod #beautiful #pain #defects #strong #fighter #cleveland #newbeginning #2017 #cancersucks #newaddition

Today, is my 2 year anniversary for being sober AND Clean. While my struggle was with alcohol, and I have not had a drink in almost five years, 2 years ago I got real with myself and my sponsor. We were doing some step work, and I admitted that I occasionally still smoked pot. I did not do it often, and I didn't have a problem with it, but it was always in the back of my mind that I wasn't being honest with myself and others when I said I was sober. I came clean. It was a VERY hard day for me. She was understanding, but told me that that wasn't part of her recovery program, and if I wanted to keep working with her, that I would have to stop smoking, reset my sobriety date, and start my steps over. She told me to go home, review the work we had done, and think about how I wanted to proceed. I got in my car and burst into tears. I was devastated. I felt like all the work that I had done for the past 3 years meant nothing, and changing my sobriety date felt like the end of the world, and that I was back to day one. Didn't it mean anything that I had not been a loser drunk for almost 3 years? I cried to a friend, got it all out, made a decision,and then called my sponsor to tell her that I would change my date and start over. She soothed my fears by reminding me that the date was just a date, and that those years meant something even more powerful than just staying sober. Through recovery, and emotional growth, I reached a new level of honesty...and that is really what recovery is all about. It's about knowing and living your truth. And by living in this new truth, I started this page knowing that I wasn't a fraud when I said I was sober. My name is Andrea, and I am an alcoholic. These are the most freeing words I have ever said. If you are struggling, hold on. It gets better...and so do you!

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life.• •"A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy. "It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego."• •He continued, "The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."• •The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?" The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed." #SoberLife #BeHappy #12stepShuffle #MakeTheDecision #BornDifferent #RemainDifferent #EmbraceDifferent #Recover #ClearHeadClearHeartClearConscience #OpenHeartOpenEyesOpenMind #InnerPeace #NeverHungover #GiveItAway #DreamBelieveTurnUp #TheBlessedLife #AddictionIsAMotherFucker #AddictsToAddicts #SoberSoWhat #Sobriety #12StepShuffle #Recover #HopeAndChange #FillTheVoid #HoldOnPainEnds #GiftsOfSobriety
