Don't look back a year from now and wish you had started today.
Today I celebrate 3 years sober. I share this because of how much shame and judgement so many have around this. I share this for the person who needs to hear ME TOO. I share this because we can not heal what we don’t bring light to. We cannot heal this if no one is talking about it.
I had no idea I needed to remove alcohol from my life until I did. I had no idea how disconnected and complacent I had become, until I took responsibility for my actions. I had no idea how incredible my life would become by finally following through on this one simple New Years resolution.
As humans, if we aren’t aware, we will seek outside of ourselves to fill voids within us. This is how addiction forms. It leaves us always needing more & never feeling satisfied. It becomes our drug of choice. Perhaps you do this with money, drugs, sex, people, gambling, avoidance, anger, power, greed, food... or perhaps you don’t.
No matter what, I want you to know that I am here to listen, to hold space, to let you know it’s okay, to remind you that the anticipation of facing something is always harder than doing it, and to let you know that you are loved.
Everything you need is already inside of you. I hope you do whatever you need to to find it. ❤️
