Today I am 4️⃣ YEARS SOBER!!! How the hell did this even happen!? In the beginning I didn’t even know how I could go a few days without alcohol, let alone 1461 days! Today I am definitely feelin’ myself, I’m proud of myself, and I am grateful I chose recovery every day thus far. No matter what your recovery journey is, all that matters is that you work on it every. damn. day. I am still surprised by the amazing things that come with getting sober. What I know is that it takes work. It takes willingness to get through the uncomfortable feelings in order to find peace. It takes honesty; with yourself & others. It requires an open mind to trust in the process, because your way didn’t work out so well. It takes a fucking village. There is no way I would be here without the support of my family, friends, and even my employer. Today I am so damn lucky I tried a different way. I’m gonna go listen to Birthday by Trap Beckham now 🙌 . . . . . . . . #recovery #wedorecover #recoverywarrior #recoveryispossible #recoveryisworthit #addictionrecovery #sober #sobriety #soberaf #soberlife #soberliving #soberissexy #alcoholicsanonymous #odaat #soberbirthday #onedayatatime #sobermovement #alcoholic #alcoholism #addiction #addictionrecovery

Day 24 alcohol free. By the skin of my teeth. I posted earlier about travel rage (sat for an hour on the runway, not moving. Why? We needed de-iced. Apparently it takes an hour to determine that) and wanting to go face first into the beverage cart on the plane. I did not. Not because I'm so disciplined, but because I knew I wouldn't be able to drink as fast as I wanted to. I get so overly frustrated when things like that happen that are out of my control. It's almost childlike...my inability to keep my perspective... Also because we had to run from one end of the airport to another to even make that connecting flight (that we then sat on for an hour), I lost my Fitbit 😪👎. Guess I had too many bags hanging off my wrist. To sum up, I inevitably turn into a big baby that cries for a bottle (of booze) at some point during traveling. Going to bed, sober peeps. Thanks for reading! #sober #dry #nowine #soberlife #sobriety #soberissexy #bettermom #itsonly30days #soberaf #sobermom
Today my day has looked like this: nothing going right and full of anxiety. **insert anxious story here** I’ve had to accept my anxiety and sit in it. Breath and continue to move. One foot at a time. I am in control of my emotions and I will not let anxiety win. O R the alcohol o r the drugs. • • • This is something I have to tell myself a lot in sobriety. That it’s ok to have not so enjoyable feelings. It’s part of life. I can’t run to booze anymore. It’s hard; but when it’s over with and I come out of the sucky feelings: it feels good. It’s one of the many little victories in sobriety that I get to celebrate daily: feeling the feels. ✌🏼 #sobriety #sober #onesoberbabe #reallife #mentalhealth #anxiety #stress #worry #nomorebeer #nomorebooze #soberissexy #lovelife #instagood #loveyourself #loveyourlife #healthy #soberlife #soberliving #soberaf #addiction #addicted #soberlifestyle #sobermovement #sobernation

Pictures with BABY BODI 😍♥️🥰 I’m so in love with this creature. She loves @bluebottle as much as me. Was an angel at @madisonandparkcoffee while I worked today. Is fiercely friendly to every person and dog she meets AND loves hanging out with me while I cook, read, work, watch movies and even sleep. Who could ask for anything more? ALSO she posed perfectly for this photo by take 3! 😄📸 P.S: My client @shahina_says (who started her instagram account today!!) is running a FREE program called “How to be happy like a dog.” Who doesn’t want that? 😄 Contact her for details. And DM me if you’re in need of personal or professional PR 😘... . . . #happylikeadog #happinessis #happyjoyousandfree #sobriety #dogsofinstagram #pitbullmix #adoptdontshop #dogsitter #fairydogmother #dog #dogisgod #love #prqueen #pr #socialmediastartegy #lifestylebusinesscoach #lifecoach #wayfinder #soberissexy #alchemist #blackdog #hectare #fullmoonmagic #witchesofinstagram
You don’t have to be perfect to be loved, you just are loved. 788 days of sobriety today. Some days are easier than others but I’m glad to make the choice to stay on this path despite the day to day stresses at work and the occasional feeling of not being good enough that creep in. During those times it helps me to go inward and meditate, pray, take a bath or practice yoga. Even though I don’t always feel like doing it, I always feel better after. Sometimes you just need a good cry too. We can’t be happy all the time. There has to be a contrast or we would not be able to recognize happiness when we have it. A great book to put this into perspective is Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl(a holocaust survivor).

I have been trying to cone to terms with being alone. With sobriety comes alot of contemplation and I am very skilled at overthinking which causes contemplation to take on a new and sometimes negative perspective. It's difficult to stay positive and I'll be honest, there are days that I feel like I'm going to be alone forever but I know that I really need to work on myself and when I continue to focus on my sobriety, my growth and my existing relations everytjing else in my life will fall into place. #staypositive #recoveryisbeautiful #personaldevelopment #sobriety #soberliving #soberissexy #freedom #peace #alcoholfree #aa #odaat #justfortoday
You’re alive. . You have a roof over your head. . You have food in your fridge. . You have people that love you. . Life is good. . . . You’re sober. . You’re not sitting in a jail cell. . You’re not coming down or withdrawing. . You’re not blacking out, or totaling cars. . You’re not playing russian roulette with your life. . You’re not keeping your loved ones up at night anymore, worried sick. . Whether you have 24 hours or 24 years; every day sober, alive and free is an absolute fucking blessing. . Be grateful. ALWAYS ♥️

There were days when she couldn’t really look in the mirror. When she would look at her body and wonder how to hide her scars. Scars brought on from growth, self, pain.. Scars deeper inside than she knew what to do with... And this unending, sinking feeling. . They say: Smile pretty. So, she did. They say: You have no reason to be so upset, but she is. They say: Geez, she’s put on some weight or why is she so thin? Or they say: She shouldn’t say that or I always knew she’d do that. Then, they say: I always thought she’d be or I’m not surprised she failed. They say: She’s trying to be like, she wishes she, omg did you see... . She can still remember how that hurt. When all she heard was: You are no good. You are not worthwhile. You don’t matter. You will never be... . . BUT that voice is hardly ever there anymore, because: She is big enough, small enough, good enough, quiet enough, loud enough, crazy enough, smart enough, silly enough, lovable enough, fun enough... SHE IS ENOUGH!! . . And now she can look in the mirror and simply: Smile. . . #selflove #instawriter #instagood #tbt #doterraleader #spokenwordpoetry #poetry #iamenough #mentalhealthawareness #recoverlife #soberissexy #soberlife
But seriously, this truly is my official stance. If you tell more than one person you're a recovering addict, word WILL spread. At least if you're open about it, there won't be secrets, rumors, and dirty lies flying around about you. Own that shit.
Hello from the taint of #California 😆🤙🏻✖️✌🏼
Deep down inside you know the truth. The truth is that you can do this. And you know if you gave 100% that you would get 100%. The truth is that it’s all up to you. Week 6, Day 2. Here I am after only 20 minutes a day with just me, my step and my virtual trainer who kicks my ass in my living room every day. I’d choose this over hours in the gym any day. YA FEEL ME?! Most people have given up on their New Years resolutions by now, but that doesn’t have to be you. You CAN do this! Don’t give up babe. This is your moment. You can decide right now to go all in and make a change. Because it is all up to you!
When you are called to leave the harbor and face your storm do not be afraid for God will be with you. The power of God in you is greater than any swell that will come your way. 🌊 Celebrating 1 year leaving alcohol behind ✌🏼 As Jimmy Buffett says, This chapter has been put to “stern”. Tomorrow I set sail on a new adventure with my amazing tribe! 🙌🏼✌🏼🙏🏼 #soberissexy
Happy to be in a church basement tonight 🙏💕 #sober #soberissexy #aa
Recovery is better together. There is a old African proverb, if you want to go fast run alone. If you want to go far run together. How true is that in recovery! We can run fast and make it to step 1, or join a step group and go far! Find a meeting.

1000 days sober today! When I first started my recovery journey, I could have never foreseen the path it has lead me on. From becoming the person I knew I could be, too striving everyday to be a better person. My family & friends have been the best support a girl could ask for. God keeps me grounded & on the straight and arrow. My strength does not come from lifting weights, it came from lifting myself up when I hit rock bottom! I travel, go to concerts, festivals, bars, I’ve bought people liquor, hang around people that drink but my desire to keep myself sober does not get tempted into falling back to my old habits! I never let anyone tell me who or what to be as I march to the beat of my own drum! Recovery has been blessing after blessing for me with shitty curveballs thrown in the mix. But I have chosen sobriety and that is something I try everyday not to fail in! I can’t say what God has in store for me but today is a huge triumph for myself! 🙌🏼🤩🚫🍺 #boozefree #recovery #survivor #justsayno #donutlover #soberbird #livingfree #soberissexy #soberlife #triumph #onedayatatime #godsglory #godslove #ownit #proud #innerstrength #milestone #specialmoment #raiseaboveit #tattooedgirl #happylife #thankful #winning #accomplishments #babysteps

Truth Tuesday 🙌🏻 _____________________________________________ Social media can have a way of making all our lives seem perfect but let's be honest, no one's life is perfect. So, this Tuesday I'm sharing some not-so-perfect truths about myself. Being vulnerable is something I struggle with, so bear with me if it comes off awkward and forced at first 🤦🏻‍♀️😂🤷🏻‍♀️ ____________________________________________ I am horrible with time management and an unfortunate procrastinator. I can't tell you the last time I made my bed when I got up in the morning. My house is usually pretty messy "behind the scenes" - organization has never been a strength of mine. I. HATE. DOING. DISHES. And folding clothes. Deep down, I have very low self-esteem. I'm using the "fake it till ya make it" approach to improve some wounds from emotional trauma in my past. I hate ranch. I'm terrified to post this. _____________________________________________ There. There it is. I know it may not seem like much, but it's an accomplishment for me. I'm here, being vulnerable, and showing people that it's okay not to be perfect. It's okay to struggle. It's okay to have a messy life. Just focus, everyday, on moving forward. Even if it's just a little bit at a time or you have to fake it until even you believe it...do it. Try. Nothing good in this world ever comes from staying exactly where you are. 💖🙏🏻

This is important for me to teach my kids. We, as parents, shape our kids beliefs. I intend to make sure they understand that life isn’t going to always go your way, that there will be highs and lows, but that the important thing is what you do next. . Resilience is so 🔑. Do you agree? 🤔 . . . . . . . #growthmindset #thisis41 #pma #beahappymama #investinyourself #womansupportingwomen #yourkidsarewatching #momlifeisthebestlife #yougotthis #gogirl #sportsmom #sportsarelife #motherrunner #hotmessexpress #athomeworkout #strongereveryday #soberissexy #sobermama #transformyourmind #motherrunner #5kaday #doitforyou #beresilient
Transformation happens in so many ways. My life was a fucking mess, I couldn't go one day without numbing myself, numbing life. I hated what I was doing to my family & myself but I didn't know how to stop. I'm grateful AF for my husband & kids for not giving up on me . I'm grateful for the day I hit rock bottom & made the decision to change my life. . . Recovery is a hard road , but it a Beautiful one. I'm thankful for fitness its helped me alot during this journey. Fitness has brought alot of personal growth into my life has well. Its given me confidence in myself to explore new ways of thinking & living . I'm grateful for All of you beautiful souls who share your heart & souls with me daily. You help me more than you know
Today was definitely not my day, to say the least. I’m not one to be all ~*stay positive!!*~ when it comes to bad days, and have learned to sit with my feelings to let them pass. It’s one thing to try to see the good in things - it’s another to blindly try to be happy when you have ish to work through. If you struggled today, I’m not gonna tell you to have a nice day. I’m gonna tell you that you don’t ever have to experience this day again, and that’s completely fine. Cry, scream into a pillow if you have to. Do what you need to healthily express your emotions and get through the wave. We’ve got this.
I have compassion for that person that I was. And I also have admiration for her because as scared as she was, she kept moving forward. I kept challenging myself even when everything in my body wanted to stop. Even when I would sit at my computer with sweaty palms and a churning stomach, I still did it. And I made mistakes! But instead of throwing in the towel, I learned from them and moved forward. When I am sitting alone at my computer typing away, editing and rereading, I still get scared that people will not understand what I am trying to say. I am still afraid of failure.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Link in bio to continue reading. new blog post 'It is just like riding a bike.'⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . #soberliving #soberlife #soberissexy #sobersquad #sobriety #sobrietyquotes #sobrietyrocks #womeninsobriety #cleanliving #nomorealcohol #nonalcholicdrink #nonalcoholic #changeisgood #changeispossible #addictionrecovery #recoveryquotes #recoveryispossible #noshameinmygame #authenticliving #nodrinks #sobernotboring #womanwhy
ACTUAL FOOTAGE OF ME FLIRTING WHEN I WAS DRINKING. 🚨🚨🚨 Seemed like it was so easy! A little (or a lot) of “liquid courage” made me feel like I could talk to anyone. Hell, I went up to Michael Jordan when I was buzzed in a club and started talking to him. Literally. I’m finding my confidence without booze, and also finding out which men want to pour drinks in me rather than talk to me when I’m sober. It’s like they feel it’s the only way to be comfortable chatting. The close talkers, the guys who practically yell in your ear with that smelly breath- ew, I don’t miss that. It’s definitely a little challenging ~breaking the ice~ on my end but I also have found I notice more now that I go out sober. I wonder how I looked - I can surely guess. Don’t miss that! ✌️ #justthoughts #deanwinchester #spn #sober #soberlife #soberissexy #tuesdaythoughts #supernatural #nomorealcohol #soberaf #sobernation #gifs #sexymen #jensenackles #todaywasagoodday #justme #thinking #flirting #life #soberliving #flirty

{NEW BLOG POST} It’s here! I have finally finished my dry January blog! 👏🏼🎉 - This was one of the most challenging posts I’ve written thus far because there was SO much I wanted to share! Being sober for 30 days was truly eye-opening. I started to realize that drinking is embedded into our society & culture. I encountered social situations that were slightly uncomfortable because I wasn’t drinking. I was actively dating while sober 👀 which was something I’ve never done before. There was a lot to take in during the 30 day period, and there was also a lot to process once it was over. - Sometimes it’s not until we remove something from our lives that we realize just how much it does effect you, both positively and negatively. Being sober for 30 days left me with many questions about my own drinking habits. If so many great things come from not drinking, compared to how many negative effects it can have, then why do I choose to drink? It’s a question I am currently sitting with and trying to figure out for myself. - I do see a sober movement happening, and I think it is awesome 👏🏼 I think we need to shift from the “everybody drinks” mindset and have an open conversation about what a sober life can look like. Being sober doesn’t mean you’re weird or boring or lame. You don’t have to drink just because you feel like everyone else does. We each need to make our own decisions about alcohol, but I just think it’s amazing to see the topic being openly discussed 😊 - Also, please feel free to leave comments on my blog! The main reason I started The Golden Daze is to spark a convo about topics that aren’t always easy to talk about. I’d love to hear your experiences with alcohol, if you’ve ever tried living a sober life, or if you are sober now! - And with that, you can find the link in my bio. Enjoy! 💛 . . . . . #newblogger #newblogpost #newblog #midwestbloggers #midwestblogger #chicagobloggers #chicagoblogger #bloggersofinstagram #personalblog #personalblogger #blogginglife #blogginglove #blogmode #bloglife #bloglove #dryjanuary #soberlife #soberliving #sobermovement #soberissexy #30daychallenge #noalcohol #soberlifestyle #sobernation #dryjan #theeverygirl #ipreview
Did you know when you're honest and speak your authentic truth, the Universe rewards you? 💫 I didn't believe it, care to hear about it, would straight up laugh at you if you said something like that to me when I was drinking. But I made a ✨promise✨ to myself when I was at rehab this summer that I would start living a life where I spoke openly about my past and my addiction in order to make connection and inspire change/conversation. - I started suffering from signs of carpal tunnel last year but it got rapidly worse in August when I got sober and when I got home it got rapidly worse. So I saw an orthapedic surgeon who prescribed me to go to hand therapy to see if it would ease my suffering. When I got there, I sat down with a beautiful woman who started taking my hand and wrist measurements. I felt immediately at ease with her and told her about my pain and felt it was right to tell her about my problems this summer and how it led me to seek help. She smiled and said, I'm in recovery too. For 12 years.” A lightbulb went off in my head, saying "Wow, there's people all around you in the real world who are on this same journey and you can meet them if you're vulnerable and open." - Paula went from my hand therapist to my sponsor (I asked her 3 weeks later) and one of my good friends and on her own amazing venture to create alcohol-free events in LA! You really never know who can be randomly brought into your life and make a difference if you open your heart and speak freely (of course, when you feel comfortable and safe!!) Hope this post inspires you! ❤️🥰
Issa mood. Emotional eating is my enemy. Hormones are high and I’ve wanted to over eat so badly. But I haven’t. I’m still here. Still sober. We are headed to Biloxi in a few weeks and I can’t say I’m not a little sad that we won’t be drinking. But I’ve worked so hard and come so far, there’s no fucking way I’m going to blow that up now. Feeling tired and uninspired. Hope y’all are doing better than I am. #sober #soberlife #soberissexy #soberliving #soberaf #soberevolution #sobermovement #hersoberselfies #tattooedandsober #sobermom #teetotaler #alcoholfree #alcoholfreelife #sobernation #spontaneoussobriety #inkedmom #tattooedmom #tattooedandsober #soberwomen #momofmany #selflove #selfcare

There's so many days I feel like taking the day off would just be easier. But you can't always follow your feelings and @ddlovato is right. Agree??? 👇
