After a 20 plus year pursuit of allopathic medicine which included studies at Ivy League school and thesis papers on benefits of yoga, after 10 years under the same Hatha teacher, after 4 years of Ashtanga study and practice which included the pilgrimage to India...(alone), after 3 year Gestalt training, after 3 years martial arts discipline and training, after an intro to Alexander technique course, not to mention over coming eating disorders and life threatening trauma....it is time. It is time for you to come practice with me. I will tailor instruction to meet your individual, multilayered needs. I know it works. I’ve experienced it. I’ve done the work and continue to do the work. Private and small group available. I can come to you or you to me. Whatever you are most comfortable with. DM me if your interested. Pass it on. It works, if you work it.#yogaeverydamnday #selflove #martialarts #gestalttherapy #12stepstorecovery
Pictures of events, people, places and things I can’t remember. I was there. The pictures prove it. It’s really difficult to explain blackouts. It’s unbelievable that you have conversations, meals, travel and laughter with people, and there’s just no recollection. It’s particularly difficult to understand if you’re a family member. Alcohol mixed with benzodiazepines and/or ambien (sleepers) in an alcoholic does two things. You lose all inhibitions, all filters. And then your brain “jams” and wipes out 🧻 the memories. Go figure. The most difficult things to make amends for. We just have to take your word that it happened, in the way you said it happened. And humbly ask for forgiveness. The best apology is changed behavior. #tbt
I’m sober today, on my 25th wedding anniversary 7 years and 10 months. #12stepstorecovery #jft #odaat #cocaineanonymous #addictwhisperer #soberlife #chooselife
Alcoholism doesn’t care what color you are, how much money you have, how talented you are, how generous you are, what kind of willpower you have, who your family is, how you were raised, what your morals and ethics are.....
It just plain and simple doesn’t care and it will kill you.
Every year on the anniversary of my sister’s death that reality consumes me.
When I ponder how easily it would be for me to relapse it makes me want to vomit. I won’t lie. It’s a heavy cross to bear. Knowing that one simple choice would whip everything out in an instant.
You see the mind and life of an addict is truly insane. It possesses you yet you appear a normal human living in society.
I know for a fact, if I picked up a drink right now, I’d risk my children’s lives tonight to chase the high.
Those that know me would say “but you have no desire to drink.”
“It’s been so long.”
“You’d tell someone if you wanted to drink.”
It’s not that easy.
Why am I alive and sister isn’t? I wish I knew the answer but there isn’t one.
So what do I do?
I hold close to God, I go to meetings, I do the inside stuff, I work with others, I stay honest with myself and my sponsor.
Have you found someone in your life to love this valentines day? I have. IT'S ME. Often, we all make the mistake of looking for someone to be in a relationship with, without first forming a relationship with ourselves. We may go from lover to lover, unconsciously looking for what is missing within us. But that search outside of ourselves will never be fulfilled. The search must start at home. With the self. If we go looking for love in our emptiness, we will only find more emptiness. For what we manifest in the world is a powerful reflection of how we feel about ourselves. Our beliefs about what we are worth, what we deserve and our right to happiness, reflect the love we will bring into our lives. When these beliefs change, so will the love we surround ourselves in.
