YOU CAN START OVER. I’ve been a real asshole lately. Not so much outwardly (I don’t think?) but definitely in my mind. Judgmental, irritated with people, and in some moments downright spiteful. It’s weird, it feels out of character, but I’m talking to people about it. Okay, maybe only my therapist since others might be frightened by my thoughts 🙃. Yesterday I lost it at the RMV (but I mean, if you’re gonna lose it somewhere), and then I did something small but reactive that I beat myself up about for a few hours after. My eyes seem to be leaking a lot. I keep waking up in the middle of the night with a racy mind and this morning I couldn’t go back to bed so I made coffee at 4:45 and just dealt with being up. Then a friend texted something nice and my irritation flared and I thought, OK, Laura. Let’s just start today over. So I sat my butt down and turned on Insight Timer for 10 mins and meditated and my particles reorganized just enough to set me closer to middle. So, we’re starting over today. And I might need to do it again later. And probably again after that. I have a ton of tools to help me navigate when things get hairy, but I also have to remember TO USE THEM. Maybe you do too—so here’s your reminder. @glennondoyle said something once about forgiving herself relentlessly. I keep repeating it to myself in this weird, judgy, asshole season I’m in: “I forgive myself relentlessly.” It helps. Start over today if you need to. All day. I root for you.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s easy to blame others for our current behavior, mood, and circumstances. It’s not easy to take responsibility and look at our own faults. Once we are able to be accountable and recognize that only we are in control of ourselves, our human potential exceeds our preconceived limitations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #quotes #lifequotes #quotestoliveby #mindset #mindsetquotes #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #soberlife #sober #sobriety #healthylifestyle #holistichealth #psychotherapy #coach #lifecoach #lifestyle #brooklynheights #uppereastside #nyc

Whisper clues about where you want me to go, and I’ll chart my way into alignment with you. @pixielighthorse I find so much comfort in this quote. If we’re willing to listen, and trust the directions, we can always find the way. . . . #clarity #prayersofhonoringvoice #sober #sobriety #sobercreative #soberfortheHEALTHofit #baja #photographer #travelphotographer

Ahh this is one of my FAVORITE quotes! As humans, we have this underlying and ongoing need to discover our meaning and purpose in life. For some this is found in relationships and family, for others in work or volunteering, and finding ways to contribute to a group or society in a meaningful ways. The list goes on and on. What I often find in clients who come to me with symptoms of depression, is that they feel “stuck” and that they do not have a sense of meaning or purpose in their lives. They may feel that they are simply “going through the motions” and feel directionless. Finding purpose and passion brings color back to our world, and keeps us moving with that fire and excitement that comes with truly being alive! So if you have lost your way, or are simply trying to learn your purpose, it can be helpful to start therapy to give yourself time and space to do some self-exploration, figuring out who you are, what you want, and HOW you want to spend your time here. We have limited time on earth, so let’s dive into this so we can spend our lives living and walking in our purpose, rather than waiting and living in regret. 💜🙏🏼

7 months today since I quit. I've had a few slip ups for sure. But this month has been solid. It has also has been the hardest month so far. Such a huge amount of disappointment, heartbreak, and what feel like steps backward. But I'm sticking to it. Moving forward. Keeping my shoulders back and my chin up. It's a process for sure. There are piles of bad days. But my Bill's are paid, I have a full fridge and a paid off truck. Business is busy and I'm getting on top of things I haven't been able to in the last decade. So it's all positive. I can't wait to see where the next month takes me.

'Strengths-Based' approaches to recovery have been growing in popularity. Learning that my strength - like all my emotions - exists in dimensions that can vary based on time or situation helps me understand how to best apply my strengths to further my recovery.

🖤🕉🖤good morning ! I’ve been living single for about a little over a year (which is not that long at all) but in that time I’ve found parts of myself that I didn’t know even existed. The way I treated people wasn’t very mature or skillful . The way I treated MYSELF was terrible and abusive. I’ve got a lot of ways to go still on this path of recovery but my heart is so filled with joy because now I UNDERSTAND what the fuck is happening in my mind and have awareness instead of just letting my mind, people and things control me. The part of clinging and attachment in my personality and relationship to everything and everyone around me was something I had no awareness of and no control over. Even if I am not perfect in this area now, I at least understand it and can get that deep rooted shit out and work on it. I’ve grown so much in the past year and in this 16 weeks of sobriety especially. Meditation and spirituality is the most important thing in my life. I now have what no one else can take away from me 🙏🏽🖤 #understanding #meditation #sobriety #practice #unattatchedappreciation #nonattatchment #reallife #maturity #grow #refugerecovery #dharmapunx #dharma #buddha #skillful #appreciation #artist #art #allowing #love #process
