Get off of my lawn you crummy little kids.
You are not alone. Some people will see this who feel completely alone. Drop something nice for them in the comments👇😊
Dear insta diary...
Kidding. Kinda.. I’m hoping being open & honest will keep me straight. Today wasn’t awful as far as urges go - a fleeting moment in the store, so I just came to the conclusion that I just can’t ever be around alcohol. Should be easy enough, I mean, it’s only e•v•e•r•y•w•h•e•r•e 🤦🏼♀️
Got back into the gym. Before my latest & sobering 6 month binge, I was addicted to lifting weights. Let’s be honest, we need something to be obsessed with, right? Lifting is obvious the better choice and a huge anxiety reliever. I felt better, looked better, and kept my drinking to the weekends (blackout Saturdays are still a no-go though, my friends).. long story short, I’m committing to improving mental & physical health. One day or day one. I’m ready for the rest of my life. If you’re reading this, you might be ready too. ✌️❤️🤞

And sometimes it’s just one of those days where you need a 2nd workout 🏋🏽♀️ ✌🏽❤️
July 16, 2010. Here we are, 9 years of continuous sobriety(including weekends and holidays)😀😀. No one said it would be easy, in fact it was said it’s not for sissy’s. I’ve been, homeless, a mother, a grandmother, a wife, divorced, a friend, dependable, unpredictable, sometimes everything I’m not supposed to be. One thing I know, I can hold my head up and tell anyone my story. MY WHOLE STORY, past, present and now. I’m not always pleased, but I know God has written my story. I’m willing to be open minded and keep on the path that He leads me to.

I made it back to Oregon with a full heart.🌠🚐 I drove through the night only stopping to sleep for 3 hours and went through a huge range of emotions. In the last 6 months I got back into skydiving again and have spent roughly 3 months jumping in California and the other 3 traveling New Zealand. I truly still cannot explain the evolution life has taken since sobriety. It has been rough and beautiful and transformation-- I've gotten to get to know myself intimately, to seek out meaningful connections, to explore the shadow parts of myself and learn to hold space for every part of my being. I've learned that I can endure, that I am strong, and that when life seems like its falling apart, I know now that the universe has a reason for it all and we have to break to build something more beautiful.
So I'm here feeling broken but the light is there and when I turn my face back towards the sun I know that wherever I end up, is where I'm meant to be.🌙 I'm thankful to have my sobriety, my new sky family, the people in my life that show up and I feel tremendous gratitude and humility as I try to decide what's next.
The people I have met jumping have reconnected me with my inner child again. Spending my days flying around in the sky facing my fears and having fun has brought back a joy I cannot explain and dont have to. Thank you Skydance for making me laugh and cry, for heartfelt conversations on the tarmac during sunset, for music in tent city, for naked shower parties and cuddles, topless skydives, for river and lake hangs, for letting me steal your coffee and feeding me pizza, for giving me a space to play and explore.
From visiting soul sisters in LA to my sister in San Diego and my best friend in Sac. Thank you California-- still holding your hand💞

This is true today.
What used to happen is our brain would talk to our brain and tell our brain about how many things our brain has done wrong today, yesterday, and the last decade.
How do you sleep?
Our past makes us stronger.
