Story:

- acceptance of my disease (it was never just one drink)

- living fear of judgment

- being an actor putting on a show- so many secrets- so much shame- the show needed to end

- actually loving myself- feeling all the feels

- the GIFTS of sobriety: gratitude everyday, attention to detail, actually LIVING

- community- find your tribe and surround yourself with people that support you

- dealing with my past and making amends and being okay if people didn't accept it

- going to Harmony and having all the staff be in recovery, I honestly don't believe I would've been as successful as I am if I had to talk to a therapist that didn't go through addiction like I did. Harmony's staff new me. They really made me feel okay and that I wasn't a bad person

Takeaways

- my past is my greatest asset

- I do not judge. love and tolerance is my code

- sobriety is and always will be #1- if I don't have my sobriety then I don't have anything

- I have faith- I know the universe has my back. I do good- good shit happens
