My memento from this weekend, this and some amazing memories made with awesome people. I received this for being the person with the least amount of continuous clean time at a table of 10. I have 10 years clean. This is a testament that We Do Recover!!! There was close to 200 years of recovery sitting at that table. Honored and Privileged to be a part of this fellowship.
Today, for the first time in a long ass time, I looked in the mirror and liked what I saw. Not in a physical or egotistical way. I saw a warrior, an endless lover, a strong woman who has been broken multiple times but never stays down long. I saw that self loving confidence that I’ve been missing for a while. I preach a lot of self love and try to stay positive as much as I can, but we’re all human and have ups and downs. I suffer from anxiety and it’s one of the hardest things to deal with (too much overthinking involved) so breakthroughs are huge for me. I sincerely hope you guys know your worth and love yourselves. And if you don’t see it yet, be confident that you will. Each and every one of you are making a difference in the world and it’s beautiful. #onedayatatime#newmoon#newbeginnings • Tomorrow for #doorwaytomay - open dem hips. Remember this is YOUR yoga.

Day 30 vs Day 1: a month ago, I was barely getting out of bed, I didn't want to talk to anyone, and I rarely left the house. I was scared of everything and I was so, so tired. I was struggling so hard to find a way back to myself and I was losing. My therapist suggested getting a therapy dog to help me cope with serious depression and anxiety. That wasn't an option for me so I bought some plants instead. A lot of people laughed at me and told me this was a stupid plan. But in the month since I bought my little plant buddies, I've left the house more, I've laughed more, I've engaged more. I've done research and joined amateur gardener groups and talked to people about my burgeoning little garden. I spend time outside in the sun without having panic attacks. I get up every single morning to water them and every afternoon I check them for weeds or bad bugs or just enjoy sitting with them to have my hands in the dirt. These plants have helped me reconnect with the world of the living. They've brought me joy and rekindled the curiosity that used to thrive in me. This simple act of taking care of these little plants has helped me find myself again. And every day, watching them grow and thrive has made that nasty voice in my head grow quieter. It's still a struggle, because mental health is never easy. But it's a beautiful start. I'm here, I'm fighting and slowly slowly, I'm coming back to myself. #onedayatatime I hope you, whoever you are, find the simple things that bring you joy and balance. Don't ever let anyone you that they're silly or a waste of time. It's always worth it to try. #mentalhealthgarden#mentalhealth#gardening#garden#awareness#selfcare#selflove#cauliflower#happybirthday#birthday#30days#smile#joy#worthit#strawberries#snowpeas#learningcurve#learning
