It’s ok to struggle

Credit Why is it so hard to admit we are struggling or stressed? Why do we think we need to keep it all together? Maybe we need to fall apart. There is no weakness is admitting or falling apart. Sometimes a struggle is a sign that something needs to be changed. Is there any area…

Always have a dream

Forget about the days when it’s been cloudy, but don’t forget about your hours in the sun… Forget about the times you have been defeated, but don’t forget about the VICTORIES you have won… Forget about mistakes That you can’t change now, but don’t forget the lessons that you’ve learned… Forget about the misfortunes you’ve…

It is OK to be a work in progress

I occasionally get trapped in the stinky thinking of “I have to have it all figured out.” I promote self love, acceptance, healthy living, recovery and I should have it all together. I should be a role model, an inspiration and infallible. Ever felt this way? We sometimes need a reminder to stop shoulding all over…

The Power of Connectiveness

I love social media, and consider some of my most wonderful friends to be people I have met entirely due to social media networking. I like talking about connective-ness because there are a lot of lessons I have learned through social media that can be applied to real life, and there are lessons in real…

The “Enough” Tyrant & Other Self Doubts

Look – I struggle a lot with the enough tyrant. It feeds me with questions when I am relaxing, “am I doing enough, can I be doing something else more productive.” It feeds me with doubt when I share a post I love and not many readers read it, making me wonder if what I…

Recovery Lessons ARE Life Lessons

I have heard at times people who want recovery “just to be over.” They want all the hard work to be done and the journey over so they can live their life, and not always fight for recovery. I understand this. In my recovery, when I got sober and started serious recovery from my eating…

The Lies We Tell

Last night my mom was sharing concern for someone struggling with sobriety, and said something to the effect of “We know this pattern, we’ve been there, they lie, you lied a lot.” Ok – I am not saying that was verbatim (sorry Mom!)
