Do you know what the biggest piece of advice I can give to people who are in recovery? It’s the one thing I try to do everyday in order to move forward. ⭐️
Every. Single. Day.
Keep showing up. •
Yes, there’s a such thing as self-care and I’m all about it YOU GUYS KNOW THIS. If you need a day to yourself, that’s totally okay. It’s part of keeping yourself healthy. But what happens so often is we take that one day and then lose our motivation to continue. We lose interest, we lost energy, we lose purpose. And it’s not your fault—it’s not your fault you felt sad or alone or confused or whatever it is. But if you want to overcome it? You gotta show up. You have to show up even on the shitty days. You have to show up even when you don’t want to. Because it’s the only way you’re ever going to TRULY appreciate the good days, and yes, there are plenty of them waiting for YOU. 🧡
So do it. Show up today. Show up tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after that, and so on. Show up because you can. Show up because you should. Show up, because in some ways it’s all we can do. Show up and hope for the best, every time.💪🏼💯
Picture reference: me at 20 years old—the same year I entered therapy for the first time, the same year I self-harmed, the same year I set out to love myself, the same year I cried while in Vegas because I felt fat and ugly when getting dressed for a wedding, the same year I lost the HOPE scholarship, the same year I got it back, and the same year I got engaged. It was a year full of several ups and downs; it was one of the best and worst years of my life. I showed up for it, and God, I’m so grateful I did. 🌻
Keep looking, try new things and don’t be afraid of failing. Give everything a shot and figure out what makes you excited, happy and motivated. You deserve to live a life you are excited about, doing things you’re passionate about! ...
