I had such a great time with this beauty of mine at the Eric Church concert last night. It was her first concert and definitely an unforgettable experience. #giftsofsobriety #motherdaughter #godisgood #cle #theland #minime #downtown #ericchurch #wreckingball #mytown #cleveland #memories #quickandloansarena #concert #godisgood

I've walked forever down this dusty road, A life of passion accented by the scent of a rose , and no one said it'd be easy man believe I know , cause it's hard for you to bloom when you need room to grow, so your never to young, your never to old. I'm still trying to chase the rainbow to my pot of gold .. I've seen a lot of the world and I want to see more , I want to notice all the things I didn't see before .... My life isn't perfect, but I know that it's worth it..I guess I'm just another clown in this so called circus ... Trying to keep my hustle , got my back to the wind ... I need to make it to the top for some oxygen... Every Tatt on my skin ,every place that I've been , everything that I lost I don't know where to begin .. It's like, Trying to read the signs mess with my mind , it looks like Love is the drug that gets me every time - SHIFTY #giftsofsobriety #onelove #soberlife #love #passion #wanderlust #yogajourney

Don't let it stop you, that fear that as you keep moving forward you'll lose things. What falls away from you is meant to fall away, you can't receive what you need to if your hands are full of the things that don't serve you any longer.

I had a great time with this beauty of mine. We were able to sit and have a picnic at the lake together and just sit back and relax. To think it's only February and we're eating down by the lake. #giftsofsobriety #edgewater #cle #theland #motherdaughter #godisgood #memories #2017 #newaddition #cancersucks #fighter #cleveland #thelake #godswill #mylife #mylove

Life is a beautiful journey. With ups and downs. When I'm faced with tough decisions in life i ask God "why me?". The only answer i can come up with is bc he wants to show me how strong I really am. Like I've been told he gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers. With a reliance on God I know everything will turn out exactly like it's supposed to. #giftsofsobriety #godisgood #mylife #newbeginnings #motherdaughter #cleveland #cancersucks #family #letgoandletgod #faith #recoveryispossible #strong #thywillbedone #cle #theland #fighter #change

One year ago today, I was mentally preparing to share my experience, strength, and hope with a room full of alcoholics who understood the insanity and the progression of my alcoholism. They understood the repeated "oblivion and the awful awakening to face the hideous Four Horsemen -- Terror, Bewilderment, Frustration, and Despair." But what they couldn't understand was the other dark entity that had joined forces with my alcoholism to take me down. They couldn't understand what was in that "box of darkness" from the narcissist who took me under his crooked wing. This 'gift' that sent me over the edge with my alcoholism was not something I could share with just anybody. But this was a real part of my story that couldn't be ignored and I felt compelled to tell it. So on Day 365, I decided to let down some more walls and formally introduce myself in writing to the 1000+ group of strangers in my online narcissistic support group. Like other alcoholics who could empathize with the anguish of my drinking, these beautiful souls could relate to the insidious nature of this abuse like no other person could. I shared my agonizing story and how I came to realize that my relationship with the narcissist was actually a beautiful gift. It was a life-changing experience that tore me down layer by layer, leaving me with no choice but to see the naked truth of who I really am. It was the catalyst that would eventually direct me to freedom and genuine love of self. The compassionate outpouring of support in response to my 'essay' was incredibly heartwarming as my first year of sobriety was coming to a close. After all was said and done, I felt sincere gratitude for the extreme gifts of darkness that I had to unwrap in order to receive the gifts of divine Light. #giftofdarkness #narcissisticabuse #narccloud #npd #empath #notavictim #thrive #selflove #giftsofsobriety #serenity #soulshine #lifechanger #transformation #morewillberevealed #birthdaypresent #birthdayeve #oneyearsober #alcoholism #alcoholicsanonymous #bigbook #fourhorsemen #beautifuldisaster

Most of my doubts are fear based. When I run on fear it changes nothing and at times makes things worse. If I rely on my God to show me and guide me with my strengths that he provides me with it changes everything and leaves me feeling more complete. #godisgood #giftsofsobriety #chippewalake #thepoint #letgoandletgod #fear #strength #newbeginnings #2017 #cancersucks #cle #theland #recoveryispossible #mommypride #lessonlearned #newaddition #fighter #faith

Today I can forgive myself for my character defects. I can ask for guidance and willingness to continuously check in on those defects. I can do this without judgement, because today I believe a power greater than myself will restore me to sanity. God could and would, if he were sought. #giftsofsobriety #6months #grateful 🍁

Very suitable for me at this point. If I don't take care of those past wounds and find healthy coping mechanisms I will easily set myself in a self destructive path. #giftsofsobriety #godisgood # wounds #bleed #healthy #cle #theland #letgoandletgod #mechanisms #future #mommypride #strength #cleveland #thywillbedone #fighter

Right before my last day of drinking, I received a very prophetic message, via fortune cookie of all things. Somehow it gave me strength at a moment when I had none left. Way back on my 2nd post here, I included that fateful fortune. 🔮 Right before my last day of my first year sober, I received another such message on Day 363. It was the message above. This timely fortune nudged me to trust my impassioned idea to start an Instagram account where I would go back and recollect and document the first 365 days of sobriety I was about to complete. 🔮 Today, I look to both of these fortunes daily. Their divine messages have been ever-present reminders for me in sobriety: Overcome and Trust. Trust and Overcome. #fortunecookie #fortune #fortunate #divine #prophetic #theuniversehasyourback #trustyourinstincts #youwillovercome #youwillovercomedifficulttimes #surrender #headedintherightdirection #keepgoing #morewillberevealed #ichoosehappiness #serenity #giftsofsobriety #godiswithin #trustingod

Life is a beautiful journey. Yes it can be completely chaotic at times by our own making. In the end it's what you do to move forward. What's important is that you keep pushing forward and don't give up. #recoveryispossible #godisgood #letgoandletgod #cle #theland #mommypride #giftsofsobriety #badchapter #story #beautiful #life #change #honesty #chippewalake #thepoint #theland #strong #fighter

Have you ever felt abundantly full? Full of love? Full of nourishment? Full of life and laughter and gratitude? • As Mother Nature has been drenching our dry parched earth with much needed rain and snow, it causes me to reflect on the abundance in my life. • Due to this beautiful gift of sobriety, I was able to spend a weekend with my parents and do a little doting on them. They are so grateful for the small things in life...just having their daughter home to help rearrange the house, battle it out on the Scrabble board, and laugh out loud at comedy shows and inside jokes that only families have. • While driving to the airport with my dad, we made fresh new tracks in the beautiful snow that blanketed our sleepy town overnight. The lakes and rivers are gushing with crisp water. The roots of the trees suck in the water like little kids sipping Slurpees on a summer afternoon. • Similar to this beautiful land, I feel abundantly full. Abundantly loved. Abundantly cherished. And abundantly thankful for my family.

When I reflect on the past 15 months I see so many trials and tribulations, but I also realize the amount of faith and endurance I have that has helped me to get through. I'm blessed enough to have an amazing family that has never given up on me and they have supported my entire journey. I have had some other amazing people put in my life that have taught me an incredible amount. It's hard to believe that no matter what life has thrown at me i have not found a reason to pick up, BC of that I'm able to say as of today I have 15 months of uninterrupted sobriety as of today. #giftsofsobriety #recoveryispossible #godisgood #mylife #cle #theland #family #sobrietyrocks #letgoandletgod #newbeginnings #2017 #blessed #cancersucks #strength #thywillbedone #mommypride #memories #addition

3 years ago today I asked you to be my girlfriend @livetoclimb21. What a ride it's been. We have had so many life changing experiences together, amazing and extremely challenging. We have been each other's biggest heartbreak and most significant teachers. It has been incredibly difficult at times, yet incredibly beautiful. Today I feel closer to you than ever before, and more trusting than ever that we are going to make it! There is this sparkle I feel when you walk into a room, a flutter of wings in my belly when we kiss, and a genuine sense of safety when you are by my side. I forgive you for being imperfect, and I thank you for being patient with me and my imperfections. I want to be a better person because of you. To many more years together on this journey called life. I love you forevermore Olivia. #love #shehasmyheart #couplesinrecovery #giftsofsobriety #lovewins #relationshipstakework #lesbians #forgiveness #patience

BC of my decision to get and stay sober I was able to go surprise my beautiful daughter today at school for her 10th birthday. There's nothing like your baby running and jumping in your arms BC she's just as excited to see you. #giftsofsobriety #grateful #birthdaygirl #cle #theland #doubledigits #mygirl #recoveryispossible #godisgood #canton #fighter #blueeyed #beauty #myworld

"You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are gray. You never know dear, how much I love you. Please don't take my sunshine away." ☀️ They were my reasons for persevering through it all one day at a time...my Solana and my Sonshine. In just ten days, I would hope to celebrate one year as a sober mommy...and I then I would just keep on going. #youaremysunshine #sunshinegirl #sunshineboy #sonshine #sol #sobermommy #myreasons #mywhy #onedayatatime #keepgoing #day355 #oneyearagotoday #10dayleft #countdown #giftsofsobriety #iloveyou #onward

Being a sober mom is amazing. One of the biggest gifts of my sobriety is being a patient, assertive, responsive mother...someone that my kids can depend on day or night. Never will I be too drunk or too hungover to be the kind of mom I want to be. Through sobriety I have found grace. There's nothing graceful about an alcoholic. The evil nature of it will steal grace from a beautiful woman and create havoc in her life. It will steal her time, her health, her respect quicker than she can imagine. I wasn't an every day drinker but when I did drink I couldn't stop. If I had a dollar for every time I said I wasn't drinking again I would be a very rich woman. "Why am I depressed?" I would ask myself heading to therapist after therapist. And then one day it happened. I realized I couldn't get to where I wanted to go by doing what I was doing. I needed to make a big change. It all made sense. Life didn't have to be so complicated. ----- #sobermom #sobrietygifts #sobrietyrocks #aa #alcoholicsanonymous #sobrietyissexy #sobermovement #commitment #success #stepsahead #gumption #grace #gratitude #prayer #sobrietyisfun #giftsofsobriety #giftsoflife #momstagram #momslivinghappy #sobrietyiscool #addictionawareness #addictionendshere #addictionrecovery #drunknomore #drunklife

Before I got sober, sleep had become a torturous problem. I couldn't fall asleep (unless I passed out), I couldn't stay asleep (even when I passed out), I couldn't go back to sleep, and I couldn't sleep in. The less I slept, the less I slept. I despised myself. Once I stopped drinking, my sleep improved somewhat but it was a slow, frustrating process. As one year of sobriety approached, my head wasn't quite as busy and self-condemning; I was just embarking on the early stages of loving myself. When I found this quote on Day 353, I was sleeping alone, often restless, and I could relate to the words with a bit of sadness. Today, one year later and almost two years sober, this quote takes on a beautiful new meaning. I now sleep peacefully with someone I love dearly. I sleep with Me. I only sleep with people I love, which is why I no longer have insomnia. #iloveme #learningtolovemyself #shesleepsalone #restless #irritable #discontent #insomnia #insomniac #giftsofsobriety #progressnotperfection #soundasleep #sweetdreams #peaceofmind #serenity #selflove #loveyourself #worthit #keepgoing #itgetsbetter #greatestloveofall

I love my Murphy more than anything. He loves me unconditionally. Murphy has been by my side from when I was an alcoholic mess, through my recovery and today as I still work on myself each and every day. Three years ago you changed my entire life and gave me a reason to push harder. So I could give you the best life there is. I love coming home to you every single day and cuddling you every single night. Two years ago, I often didn't come home at night. And you didn't deserve that. Today we live happy together. I'll love my peanut forever and I wish you could read this! 💗
