500 days alcohol-free 💖
With each day, I step more confidently into my capability and my life’s possibility.
With each day, I deepen my well of gratitude.
With each day, I grow stronger, more secure, more content.
I can’t pinpoint exactly when I became a non-drinker. I never made a concrete decision to stop drinking. In July 2018, I committed to a year-long booze break. I educated myself, I empowered myself, I found my tribe. I flirted shamelessly with a sober identity - thinking it would never last - and ended up falling in love. I fell in love with the clarity and the energy and the brilliance. I fell in love with my sober self. And now, 500 days in, I don’t ever want to let her go.
I own these 500 days with pride. They are all mine. I hold each of them - the best ones and the worst ones and each and every one in between - in love and light today, honoring every stage of this incredible journey.
Bright eyes. Open mind. Happy heart. This is me at 500 days alcohol-free 🥰
Not to brag or anything but...
I think I'm aging pretty well 😉🤘 #throwbackthursday to this gem of a picture that just reminds me just how longggg alcohol played a major role in my life. So many moments I spent inebriated instead of being present. So many nights in my life I cant look back on and remember. Sadly, that's my past.
But luckily I'm seeing a much clearer future.
How do you see your life in the future?
Are you taking steps in that direction?
Are you at peace with how its going?

So be honest with yourself and then get real with yourself friends.
The time is now 💚
Because of IG, I was able to meet one of my best friends ever. Social media has definitely upped my sober tribe circle. I didn’t have this outlet, in my first 6 yrs of recovery. But now, It has added so much more substance to my recovery. So grateful. Love you @s 0ul_vibes_ ...
