You Don't Have To Do More...


I have been thinking a lot lately about what I'm creating for my life in 2019.

The New Year is always my favorite time of the year and one of my favorite holidays. I have always loved new beginnings and fresh starts.

Too Many Rules, Not Enough Fun!


I'm coming out of a bit of a funk over the last week or so and took a few days off from my writing to let myself get through it.

Loneliness...



This weekend I had a little surprise visitor that I haven't had in quite some time...

We shall call him Loneliness!

Staying Sober on the Holidays and the Hard Days


This post is for my #soberwarriors #sobercurious or just plain #sober on the holidays and the hard days...

Holidays and special occasions can be hard! There is so much normalization around drinking and partying around the holidays and special occasions.

What Will They Say About You?


Sometimes the shortest conversations can be the sweetest...

I shared with some friends tonight how I'm so thankful for the handful of people that are in my life who knew my dad. I love that we get to share stories and I get to hear how he touched people's lives.

Oh My, the Single Life!


Being single after roughly 20 years of being in a marriage/relationship, and really for the first time in my adult life has been a crazy learning experience and wild adventure. I have learned and am learning so freaking much about myself and what I want that I’m finally in a place where I feel like I can talk about some of it.

She Remembered Who She Was...


There is a storm raging inside of me. It has always been there. Only now I embrace it. All in.

I am a strong woman. Fierce. Loyal. Bold. Powerful. Unshakeable.

Sometimes You Must Go~

Today would have been my 19th wedding anniversary. I hesitated on writing about it, but it's the only brilliant and true thing that is there for me to write this evening, so I will share... Brilliantly...

Out of the Bottle~


I've been sharing my sober story publicly quite often lately, so I decided to share a written version of it here with you for today's blog.

It has taken me some time to be ready to share this part of myself openly. But as my love and passion for sobriety grows, I realize more and more that it is my duty and part of my purpose to share with others.

Even When We Don’t Want To...


I just got home from a long day, I’m tired and I don’t want to write tonight. 

I don’t have a plan and I don’t have it all figured out. Welcome to life. 

Here I am anyway.

Feel it to Heal it


Feelings are a tricky thing. There's a lot of talk about feelings in recovery because we are learning to deal with them in new and productive ways rather than numbing them out.

Becoming a master over and a friend with our feelings is critical. Otherwise they can have mastery over you.

Feeling the Fear~


I am learning some things about fear. Even building a relationship with it. 

Fear is not a stranger to me, however mostly my fears have been based on something that has already happened or something that I’m afraid will happen, which is usually never actually going to happen. It’s just craziness.
