The Two Days I’m Most Grateful For…

September 8, 2021

Today is my birthday. They say that the two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you know why.

The day I knew why I was born, was the day of my spiritual experience that brought me into recovery. That was the day I knew my job was to get sober and write my story.

Sounds simple, but I complicated the heck out of this simple task. To share my story, I needed to look perfect, be perfect and have the perfect family. But I couldn’t make these things happen and that frustration began the process of my REAL recovery.

Going deeper than bad habits and exploring my self defeating mindsets that told me that I alone, wasn’t good enough to tell my story. Why would anyone listen to me? And THAT surrender to all the things I couldn’t control began my focus on ME vs others —and is the story of the book I’m writing now.

On my birthday this year, I feel really, really good about who I am & what I’m doing in the world today. My life is not perfect, but I 100% believe I am living in God’s perfect will for me. I have everything I need, my children are safe & loved and I know without question, that I am 100% good enough to have a voice and share what I’ve learned to help others.

I am enough.

The obstacles of codependency, perfectionism and self-neglect WERE the path to this truth. Where there was once only pain, there is now only beauty. I am so grateful for my imperfect life. It has taught me how to love myself unconditionally and give that same gift to others that need it too.

If you would like to celebrate with me, please consider making a donation to the nonprofit organization Family Recovery Society of Canada that helps families recover from addiction. Send me a pm for more information! ❤️🙏🏼🎁

Thank you 🙏🏼

What a ride.

The journey continues…
