The last few days I have been celebrating with loved ones, including a dinner tonight. This past week I have been Self Reflecting on my journey in recovery. The pain, the struggle, the tears, the work, the sadness, the healing, the unknowns, the anxiety, the fears were all worth this moment here now. I feel peaceful and immense gratitude for my recovery. Life does get better even in challenging times. It seemed like my second year sober has flown by. Time goes fast, while I am happy, content and sober.
Why do I feel so empty yet full of pain? Why am I alone with no friends? How did I lose the love of my life and why is he out with someone else? Why am I broke and car-less with nowhere to go? At that moment it just clicked like a light turning on in a room that has been dark for 28 years.

Hello Friends today is two years sober, I am filled with gratitude, love and purpose. Day one sober I was laying on a mattress in small apartment with nothing, only the want to be sober. I lost the love of my life and most of my friends. I was filled with self hate, guilt and shame. I knew with every cell in my body that the only way for me to rise from my rock bottom was to stay sober and find a recovery program. My addiction created a lot of chaos that was still alive and surfacing in my early days and months sober.
