Blessed to be able to spend time with my son.
Watching his body struggle with illness as he weans himself off his prescribed meds for addiction has been difficult. As a parent we want to fix or not allow our loved ones to suffer. Then I realized...hes alive. Thank God my son is alive!! Truly...its the greatest gift ever getting to spend time with him right now.
We talk...I try my best to understand how hard he's working just to get through the days right now.
God has graced us with a special gift of nice sunny weather. It's cool...but the light has been immensely helpful.
Savor your moments folks..... m~
A new day....fresh starts for many...face down in the mud for some...I have been through more trials than most yet barely scratched by others standards..... My thought is...each of us struggles in various ways, I do not care if this is by defining your goals to standards set by others or creating your own. We are human, we will make choices that hurt ourselves, hurt others...the difference for me is learning through each choice to either expand upon or never ever repeat.
In spite of the chill...my new days will begin thus...a morning vid to reflect and I hope share a moment of encouragement with those who might actually be listening.
We plan, we anticipate yet the reality is...none of know what the day might hold.
Savor....the moments matter.
Be you .......be brave....be unique....be kind....be authentic truths. ..... Be.... Just sayin' me~
Every severe consequence I’ve ever endured stemmed from my addiction to drugs and alcohol.
The person I was wasn’t the person i really was at my core.
I choose to speak about it.
I am healing and moving on to be the best version of me that I can be.
I hope someone feels hopeful and inspired to to do the same. “If you have found your way out of the hell of addiction; Don’t you dare keep it secret from someone else who needs to hear how you did it!” #SurvivorSeriesLive#NoMoreHeroin

Addiction is a crazy thing.
So many people struggle and don't think they have a way out. Here's proof that sobriety is possible! This is me at 17, so seven years ago, probably the worst possible place I could be, looking the worst I have ever looked.
I legitimately say in one of the videos I probably taste like dope 🤦🏽♀️
There was no soul, no love, or not life in my eyes. I had no will to live, I had nothing to look forward to. Wake up, get high, serve with my ex, fight with my ex and repeat.
I am now 23, almost 24, I have almost six years sober.. Six years of happiness. I am not ashamed to say I was there, at the bottom, begging for a way to get better.
I made excuses, I relapsed several times before I ever got clean, if you're struggling to get clean, my inbox is always open! You can do it, I promise.
PS I'm sorry guys the videos are embarrassing asf. Lol I've only posted them on my Tumblr....seven years ago. (Swipe right)
