Integrity has turned into another core value of mine. Being honest and true even when it is not the popular way to go hold a lot of weight. You do what is best without self interest. It’s hard, sometimes. When I was deep into drinking, I put my needs before everyone else — although if you’d ask me, I’d still consider myself selfless. I wasn’t really, I was still operating out of my own self interest. I didn’t want people to know about my shit. Now, still working it out. Being honest helps and by working a program — I have discovered that I really love being of service and I’m embracing my kindness more. It’s the small things but it’s cool to discover. How do you view integrity? Is it a core value to you?

“The best way out is always through.” — Robert Frost Life isn’t linear, it’s easier to go with the flow instead of challenging yourself. Going against expectations can be scary, uncertain when you never felt supported in your life. This year has tested me but I think truly I’ve always been tested, I just hid or ran away. Whether it’s my own tenacity mixed with this newfound faith — I am ready to make moves. Not everything will go to plan and that’s okay but I’m willing to learn and share it. Especially if someone can identify or relate. Doing all this with a clear mind and heart is the greatest gift. August 1st will be here before we know it. What are you striving towards? What are the tools that you’re using to keep yourself on the path and focused? * * * #sobriety #sober #soberpodcasts #teetotaler #serenity #growth #honesty #comingsoon #blackgirlsober #blacknsober #recovery #addiction #newlifestyle #mentalhealth #selfcare #selflove #soberaf #asobergirl #alcoholfree #noalcohol #nobooze #faith #humility #courage #couragequotes
Faith was hard for me to get the knack of...I was used to always having to have my own back (to my own detriment sometimes). Faith seemed not tangible, I couldn’t apply it realistically but this journey has taught me that some things you just have to trust in someone other than yourself and it’s not necessarily a person. Going to AA, connecting to my HP, acknowledging my gifts — there is an element of faith there. Faith in moving forward, faith that it will work out as long as I honor my truth. I feel like I’m finally on the path I’m supposed to be on due to humbling myself by saying I don’t know it all and that’s okay. When did you understand faith? Or if you’re still struggling with it, why? * * * * * #sobriety #sober #soberpodcasts #teetotaler #serenity #growth #honesty #comingsoon #blackgirlsober #blacknsober #recovery #addiction #newlifestyle #mentalhealth #selfcare #selflove #soberaf #asobergirl #alcoholfree #noalcohol #nobooze #faith #humility #latenightthoughts
Hope is a weird thing. In therapy today, I went on about how things are going very well — yet, I have this urge to self destruct. I always notice it more when things are going well. Almost like I shouldn’t feel alive and dare I say, hopeful. Learning new things about myself everyday. Adding more values to my life in what I want to utilize within myself and what I want to allow in my life. Without hope, I’d still be reacting to life instead of pushing myself. My world is totally different than the one I had a year ago, crazy how things shift for you when you want it bad enough. * * * * * #sobriety #sober #soberpodcasts #teetotaler #serenity #growth #honesty #comingsoon #blackgirlsober #blacknsober #recovery #addiction #newlifestyle #mentalhealth #selfcare #selflove #soberaf #asobergirl #alcoholfree #noalcohol #nobooze
Funny, the things you learn or discover about yourself when you clean your act up. Honesty, is HUGE for me now and something I’d be into when I wasn’t sober but not something I’d align to my life values. I’d lie in an instant and think nothing of it. After all, I was lying to myself — so why would it register how I treated others? Now It bothers me to not tell the truth. I feel so much lighter, I don’t have to tiptoe around what was said HOPING I don’t backtrack and have to dig my way out. I just speak my truth openly, trying my best to still have compassion and empathy. Then I go on about my day. Sobriety is key to all of that for me. Without being honest, I wouldn’t have remained sober for as long as I have. * * * #sobriety #sober #soberpodcasts #teetotaler #serenity #growth #honesty #comingsoon #blackgirlsober #blacknsober #recovery #addiction #newlifestyle #mentalhealth #selfcare #selflove #soberaf #asobergirl #alcoholfree #noalcohol #nobooze
Hey, all! I never know how to begin or end things (story of my life) but I’m trying to work on changing that aspect of myself. * * Where to begin? This podcast initially was my intro into discussing rapid life changes, especially as you got older. I’m in my thirties, and while I enjoy getting older — I started feeling suffocated by a life that didn’t seem to fulfill me. At the same time, i was meeting people (younger and older) who were living life on their terms and saying fuck it and doing them. I found that interesting and wanted to explore that and thus, the initial idea of « Getting Your Sh*t Together was born! * * But wait, what happened though? Well, life did. After a series of mishaps throughout the course of the past ten years, I took stock of where I was late last year and realized I need to get my act together for my sake. So I decided to do what a lot of folks do for the new year, I gave up drinking (again) for Sober January. Throughout all of that, I looked back at how alcohol has served my life (it hadn’t) and how it shaped the person I was to that point. Coming to terms with the idea that I didn’t relate to alcohol in a healthy way wasn’t overnight but I decided to stick it out for January, at least but secretly I knew I was going to keep living an alcohol free life for as long as possible. It’s been six months so far and I feel totally different than where I was six months ago never mind last year. I found my honesty and I’m excited about the person I’m becoming. So, I decided to do something new (the old Cynthia would have cringed at the thought) and take it to the podcast. So, here I am. This is all new for me but that’s okay. It won’t be always be perfect but it’s a journey...a honest one at that. lol Looking forward to connecting along the way. First episode drops August 1st! * * #sobriety #sober #soberpodcasts #teetotaler #serenity #growth #honesty #comingsoon #blackgirlsober #blacknsober #recovery #addiction #newlifestyle #mentalhealth #selfcare #selflove #soberaf #asobergirl #alcoholfree
Trust.✌#day30of365 #365AFchallenge #mondaymotivation . . . #Repost @asobergirlsguide ・・・ The best is yet to come, I can promise you this. I never knew what peace was. I was always so caught up living on the edge of drama and waiting for the bottom to fall out of every seemingly positive situation. My life was a series of extremely sharp, jagged peaks and valleys. Flying high (literally) one moment and then crashing and burning the next. Today I am grateful for holding on and knowing that what the future holds is so much better than what has gone. #recovery #sober #alcoholfree #motivation #inspiration #asobergirl

Drugs and alcohol don't heal you. ⁠ A negative state a mind doesn't heal you. ⁠ Being around toxic people doesn't heal you. ⁠ Staying the same, doing the same things doesn't heal you.⁠ ⁠ What about your environment have you changed to aid your healing process?⁠ ⁠ #recovery #selfhelp #asobergirl #sober #soberaf #alcoholfree

Drinking became boring. I knew the whole itinerary and game plan when I drank. ⁣⁣ ⁣ 1. I could never have just one drink. That was like taking one Advil, what’s the point?!⁣⁣ ⁣ 2. I would always say something I would regret. Always.⁣⁣ ⁣ 3. I would be chasing that “first fifteen” feeling the whole night. (That lil buzz when you have your first few sips.)⁣⁣ ⁣ 4. Always made poor food choices and ate crappy food, while drinking or after to soak up the booze.⁣⁣ ⁣ 5. Anxiety and depression would hit hard the next day.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Same old, same old. Like a broken record, boring! Changing it up was scary, but necessary. We gravitate to things that make us feel safe and secure and comfortable, even if it kills us. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ To get sober, I had to get out of my comfort zone and change. Change the way I thought, felt and acted. I found comfort in the unfamiliar. #selfhelp #recovery #alcoholfree #asobergirlsguide #asobergirl #comfortzone
Change your mindset, change your life. ⠀⠀ For so long I didn't see the value in sobriety. I thought sobriety meant limitations and a new list of things I had to do. It just seemed like one big endless chore. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ My mindset was ass-backward. Releasing alcohol has given me freedom. The freedom to choose. I get to find peace. I get to focus and be present for things in my life. I get to step into who I really am and I get to enjoy every damn minute of it. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Sobriety isn't a burden or a chore, it is a choice. It is a gateway to an unlimited amount of "gets."⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ What do you get to do in recovery?⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #asobergirl #recovery #alcholfree #sober #get ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
