recovery is not a race. anything that is worth a damn doesn’t come fast and doesn’t come easy. slow down, let go of control, keep an open mind, and always remember nothing happens over night.

#miraclemonday back at it… 25-year-old successful professional vs. 18-year-old lost crazy party girl. This post is for all of the people who told me I was a failure and would never amount to anything. Well look at me now! The best revenge will always be to smile and be happy. Drive ’em crazy and smile at the haters <3
When I was brand spanking new to sobriety I couldn’t stand the people in AA meetings that would say they were grateful to be an alcoholic and for their addiction. A few times it pissed me off so bad I got up and walked out. (I had a hard time controlling my emotions haha) Other times I would sit there rolling my eyes and secretly wanting to punch that person in the face. Like what in the hell.. how can you be grateful to be an alcoholic. In one meeting I spoke up (cross-talked) and said am I in the right room, are y’all alcoholics, because I just experienced death and came up off of the ground floor of hell and I will never be grateful for that experience. Little did I know…. Here I am a little over 3.5 years into sobriety and I am proud to say that I was 100% wrong and I am grateful for everything I went through and everything I experienced. I am who I am because of it. I wouldn’t change it for anything. I learned just how strong I am and how much I have to offer. Two things I never imagined I would be saying before or during addiction. So if you are new to sobriety and want to punch me in the face right now… Don’t worry I totally get it. I’ve been there. Keep pushing one day at a time and you’ll slowly see how this whole addiction thing can spin into a gratitude you never knew existed.
