SOBER. A word that is full of so much power - yet has so much stigma attached to it. I just simply never thought I would use to describe myself. And more than that, be the most proud of more than anything I’ve ever done in my life. Today I celebrate 1 year sober. The best and most amazing year of my 33 years on planet Earth. Something I never thought I would say.
.
This past year was pure magic. That’s truly how I feel. It’s hard to put into words, so this might seem rambly so bear with me. I feel reborn. I feel all the things I never felt when I was pouring handles of vodka down my throat, obsessing at all times of day about when I could get my hands on more. I feel things I didn’t know existed. Who knew that sobriety meant I would just randomly start singing or smiling or giggling to myself at nothing throughout the day? This happens all the time - and it’s one of my fave things about being sober. The random moments of joy & feelings of gratitude for where I am.🙏🏻
.
I thought giving up alcohol would mean the end of fun… also, what the hell was I going to do all day? 🧐But I’ve gained my freedom back. I’ve gained back my happiness. Drinking was not FUN anymore - I realize that now. I’m Free to do anything I want. Do all the things I talked about doing when I was drunk. I wake up clear headed. I meditate & go to yoga. I dance around the apartment. I read books for fun again. I’m nice to strangers. I want to help others struggling with addiction. I’m better at my job. My relationship w/ my family has strengthened. I like trying new things. I like being outside. My anxiety is (almost) gone. I can sit w/ myself. Bad things can happen + alcohol doesn’t even cross my mind. My body feels strong. I don’t have bruises anymore. I’m focused. I like being alone. I like being around people. I can go to a wedding sober. The obsession is GONE. Now, my obsession is making each + every day better than the rest.
.
Something said to me at rehab was “People who stick with recovery are the lucky ones. Most people don’t get a second chance at life.” ❤️It’s true. Now I have this chance to be the person I’ve always wanted to be.
.
Thank YOU for coming on this journey with me! 🥰.

Three years ago today, @soberevolution & I became friends on Facebook. I had just written a blog about “How to Survive a Break-Up in Recovery” because my boyfriend had dumped me a month before.⁣
⁣
Austin started following my public Facebook page & I took notice. I saw this picture of a gorgeous bearded man, with tattoos in an “on that drug-free diet” t-shirt. ⁣
⁣
I squealed & showed my roommate @saralices his picture & said, “I hope he reaches out to me!!” Alas, he never did. No message, no DM, no direct communication.⁣
⁣
But, we remained friends via social media & I saw his ethics & his integrity. I liked him as a person, but I often just scrolled right on by because his pictures were usually full of comments from women gushing over his looks & begging to make him tacos. ⁣
⁣
I assumed he was another typical fuckboy, full of conceit & arrogance & not the relationship type. (VERY JUDGEY OF ME. I know). ⁣
⁣
When I moved to Florida for work, I reached out to him about working together on a project. We met in Orlando & had Sushi & I asked him a million and one questions, because that is my thing. I kept telling him that his answers sounded like “beauty pageant answers.” I could not believe that a man so good looking could be so nice. ⁣
⁣
Austin is the kindest, most genuine, most loving soul I've ever come across. And it all started with this picture & my God pointing something out to me that would only come to fruition a year later. ⁣
⁣
This is all to say, you never know what love will look like, where it will come from, or how you will find it. But, when it appears & it's pure - it will show it's beautiful face & it will invite you in & it will love you like you've never known love.⁣
⁣
This type of love won’t be based on infatuation & obsession - it will be based on a foundation of friendship, a love that is steady - not dramatic or addictive. Real love is NOT addictive love & that took a long damn time for me to figure out. ⁣
⁣
Austin & I’s relationship has shown me that you can recover from love addiction. You can find real love..

Guess what?
There are no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ emotions. 
Being ecstatically happy does not make you a better person than being in the middle of grieving.
.
.
.
Taken to its most extreme — during the formative years — this endless suppression of any supposedly “negative” emotions can lead to pathological #narcissism. 
Believe it or not, many #pathologicalnarcissists were once sensitive traumatised little children.  They were trained to deny & suppress any pain, fear or trauma they felt, resulting in them becoming so detached from their true feelings and original core self that they created a fake persona to conceal the self they were now ashamed of & then they went out into the world & projected their shame & self-hatred onto others. 
#Narcissists never process their feelings or seek to heal.  Instead they just create a fresh new mask to hide behind & immediately latch onto new prey to bolster their fake persona, all while claiming they’re into “positive vibes only.” .
.
.
That’s a lesson in how NOT to heal.
.
.
.
You’ve got to feel to heal.

To be honest i don’t love the word ‘empath.’ I use it as shorthand but i find that it sometimes can be a stifling label for us highly empathic, sensitive souls. We may feel boxed in or burdened by it, or even use it as a crutch. I also think it often gets confused with unhealed codependence.
.
Do you see yourself in this chart? If you are more on the right, come to my FREE masterclass on Monday. It’s going down in my private womxn only fb group LIONHEART.
.
‘THE 5 SECRETS TO HARMONIOUS RELATIONSHIPS FOR SENSITIVE WOMEN.’
.
If you are always being called “too sensitive” 
If people cross your boundaries and you don’t know how to get them to stop 
If you absorb other people’s feelings 
If you want to learn how to kindly, clearly, assertively communicate with anyone 
If you want to know how to discern between intuition & fear
.
Then come on in, babe. I gotchu.
.
It’s all going down in LIONHEART at 3PM EST on Monday. No replays. 🙃
.
If you want in, request to join the group (link in BIO), answer the 3 admission Q’s, mark it down in your calendar (convert to your timezone if you’re not in EST) and i will admit all new members one hour before the class on Monday.
.
Gimme am emoji ⚡️if you are committed to showing up for this value-packed amazingness.

Oh yeah it’s FREE!🥳.
