Step 6 promises big life changes. And boy have they come. Try as I might, I can no longer see the future. But its sort of ok. Trying to control time and fate was never my job in the first place. I lean into the unknown and take a nervous but brave step in faith into uncharted waters. Fear, worry, guilt and low self-esteem no longer serve me where I’m going, that much I do know, so I leave them behind on the shore like a skin I’ve shed. #recovery #twelvesteprecovery #twelvestepprogramme #twelvesteps #12steprecovery #12stepprogramme #12steps #lulworthcove #dorset #jurassiccoast #faith #trust #growth #change
Lost 50 pounds because of my health issues and surgeries. I'll take the loss this way anytime. Better than loosing it by drinking and drugging. Still strong and sober. Won't go down without a fight. 🙏☯ #sobrietyrules #strength #strongandsober #twelvesteprecovery

I am experiencing #grace on a daily basis now. The healing connection I have found inside myself is now showing up in the external world around me as I learn the lessons of Step 5. Trust, intimacy and connection open my heart up to beauty like the evening light through these trees on a normal village street in June. I am excited for the next step, and for the next chapter of my journey. Miracles are happening 🙌🏼 #sunset #england #summerrain #summersunset #twelvesteprecovery #twelvestepprogramme #trust #connection #ruralwalking #englishvillage #beauty #beautyintheeveryday
Why do we expect perfection? It’s about progress! • We trip, we fall, we get back up, and we keep going. • My own well is so shallow... in the failures and the successes, I need the depth of Christ to be my strength. • Podcast Episode 14: A story of alcohol addiction recovery • Also, I attended a class tonight called, “The Neuroscience of Addiction,” and I shared some glimpses in my stories. • @c50ministries #c50podcast #overcomingcodependency #anxietyrelief #anxietyattack #anxietyproblems #recoveryisworthit #familyrecovery #codependent #codependency #codependentnomore #alanon #bipolarawareness #bpdrecovery #recovering #twelvesteps #twelvesteprecovery
Ironically this last #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek I’ve been riddled with low self esteem. When I feel like this I become extremely forgetful. I forget that this is not me. I forget that I am capable and confident and beautiful inside and out. I forget my self care routine. I forget that I have people in my life who love me, want to be with me and who I can trust and connect with and talk to. When your self worth is low, you treat yourself as if you are nothing and hide yourself away. That’s where the dark gets in, like black ink leaking into crystal clear water, blocking out any sunlight. I am blessed to have a group of people who know how to help me out of it. I have a programme in place and tools I can reach for that guide me back to myself. Not everyone is so lucky. If someone you know has disappeared from conversations or regular contact, reach out and check in, don’t settle for an “I’m fine” from them (that’s my favourite brush off and hide line). You might be the hand in the dark that can jolt them back out into the world again. We all need reminding every now and then that we matter and that we are worth our weight in gold. #MentalHealth #DontSufferinSilence #DontSufferAlone #TwelveStepRecovery #TwelveStepProgramme #12StepRecovery #12StepProgramme #OneStepAtATime #SelfEsteem #YouMatter #SelfLove #SelfCare #SelfieLove #Selfie
i know, you were saving this photo for when it would be true, for when you would indeed be free; from the constant and harassing thoughts about food; from the resentment toward those women who should have protected you, and the men never held accountable. i know you didn’t want to post this photo until you were certainly free from financial worry and from love expressed in bullying and criticism which has targeted your body—misguided love that punches the same tender spot, over and over. But look up, daughter, look up, child of the most high. Fix your carmel tiger eyes on Me. look up and remember that we are here for a fleeting amount of time, and I am leading your body in one perpetual victory parade. ONE PERPETUAL VICTORY PARADE. - - So, post the photo, oh precious one. and turn the knob all the way until you see that big ball of fire in the sky giving of its entire self for the life and the care of My universe. go on, daughter, go out there you are free, free indeed. • • • • • #iamfreefreeindeed #ihaveanewname #conversationswithgod #shereadstruth #shrillhulu #watercolortattoo #hummingbirdtattoo #daughteroftheking #daughterofthemosthigh #gracenotperfection #cultivatewhatmatters #openthedoor #celebraterecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #thetwelvesteps #twelvesteprecovery
A year ago today I dragged my broken little soul into a room full of strangers and began my 12 Step journey. It was the best decision I have ever made. To celebrate my one year anniversary I got a @myintent bracelet made with the words #faith and #trust made. My daily reminder to trust and have faith in myself and the universe. It’s also part of my favourite quote from my favourite book #peterpan . #myintent #recovery #12steprecovery #twelvesteprecovery #12stepprogramme #twelvestepprogramme #allyouneedisfaithandtrust #fairydust #pixiedust #icanfly #whatsyourword
I sat in my twelve-step meeting tonight with a lot of brave people. The topic was the dreaded fourth step. Some people had not started working the steps yet. Others have worked them many times. The old-timers like myself, know how hard it is to look at yourself for the first time. We know how hard it is to look at both the good and the not-so-good. But, we also are able to share how great it feels once you discover that the goal of this step is to help us grow into the image that God holds for us. I took this picture of my husband at a farm where he grew up. My camera focused on the weed instead of my husband. The details are so clear on that weed. But, you can barely make out what my husband looks like. Are you giving too much attention to the weeds? Recovery is about gaining perspective of reality. The spiritual exercises ask us to look at the history of sin. From that, we can learn how we all fall short. We are not unique. This being human means that we are limited. #catholicinrecovery #ignatianspirituality #twelvesteprecovery #godinallthings #fourthstepinventory #stignatiusofloyola
Had the #privilege to teach #ashtangayoga to young #athletes . This is what #fillsmyheart and keeps #gratitude an action word in my life. One of the (many) similarities between #yoga and #twelvesteprecovery is the commitment to #servicework . @eddiestern says that if he is asked to do something and he can, he does. I am dedicated to emulate these acts of #selflessness and service to others. #yogaeverydamnday #practiceandalliscoming #gratitudeisanactionword #hope #lovealwayswins #teachthechildrenyoga #teachthechildrenwell
⁣Hell once came to me in the dead of night, in my darkest hour while I was at my lowest⠀ ⠀ It told me that I’d seen my best days⠀ ⠀ That now, life was over⠀ ⠀ That I’d never bounce back again⠀ ⠀ This is what I said back..... . . . . . #bounceback #tragedytotriumph #scripture #truthquotes #recovery #twelvesteprecovery

Afternoon loves!! So, last weekend I cancelled Che Yoga classes to attend the Yoga of 12-Step Recovery certification training with the brilliant Nikki Myers. Like other great yoga trainings, this training brought me face to face with myself - the love and unresolved fears within me. In that respect, I worked harder for this certificate than any other I've received and I wanted to share this moment with you all. No matter how things seem on the outside, the work needed on the inside never stops. But, the way that work brings you closer to other people is worth all of the effort! 👩🏾‍🎓🙏🏿❤🧘🏾‍♀️ Namaste', hugs, & love!
