I used to go to social gatherings to get drunk. Not to socialize. #Socializing made me uneasy. Getting #sober has been adventure. I’ve had to learn how to be human and actually socialize. I’ve had to learn how to #partysober . I’ve learned how to show up to parties and #BYOB with my #LaCroixWater and feel confident. I’ve learned how to watch people pass around bottles of alcohol around a fire and not have to tell myself not to take a drink. 818 days later it’s getting easier, but I won’t say it’s easy.

~ WE CLEAN UP NICELY 🌟 ~ Such a fun night getting dressed up and celebrating the Blazejewskis! 👰 🎩 .
The last time I wore this dress was 2.5 years ago for my sisters wedding and I looked noticeably different than I do now. Not only have my boobs shrunk since I’m not pumping anymore, but I’ve lost weight, gained muscle and more importantly stand much taller with self-confidence... and 4 inches heels 👠 🌟. .
I still expected to cringe when I went through the few shots Melissa Holthusen took of us ( because some things are just habit still), but was pleasantly surprised and said to Waylon “damn i look good! Well, WE look good ☺️”
Cheers to a wonderful night with friends and family! 🥂 Go Vikes! 🙌 🏈
This week I accomplished something HUGE y’all!! I got my teeth cleaned for the first time so many years. First of all I’m thankful that I have teeth to get cleaned. So many people that use meth aren’t that fortunate. All those chemicals eat your teeth up son.
Most people don’t understand that you lose the ability to be a responsible human during Addiction. I promise that’s never our intention or our dream. It just happens.
When I look back over the 2 plus years I’ve been sober, I measure my success by all these small wins. Getting my teeth clean, getting the tag on my car, getting car insurance, you know the things that most people have under control when they are an adult. Seriously it’s sooooo freakin’ hard to start your life over after drugs and alcohol have ran it in the ground!
All my sober peeps out there, rebuilding your life.... give yourself a hug from me!! I’m soooo proud of you!!!! Celebrate those small wins, Lil Babies because it’s a big deal!!
Some of you may not know this, but the reason I seeked out essential oils was because I was STRUGGLING with my emotional wellness, big time. I was doing all the right things as far as nutrition goes, but in the holistic world, I learned that I needed to do more.
Because smelling something is one of the only ways to activate the part of your brain responsible for emotions (the limbic system), oils have the power to shift your emotional state in SECONDS.
Right now, through my healing academy, when you buy just TWO oils, you get access to the course that shifted my life. A journey to find balance in your life through your chakra system- a journey to self healing and self discovery.
Your chakras are not only energy centers in your body, they are your most valuable tools to help you see what areas of your life could use a little tweaking so that you can feel better. Often we are not conscious of where we are going wrong because of subconscious patterns we've been repeating over and over from a young age.
I was able to understand the areas of my life where I hold limiting beliefs about myself and the world around me, where I hold on to traumas, and why I feel the way I feel when it always seems so out of the blue. I gained a better understanding of myself in general. And I learned how to build myself back up piece by piece, by finding peace, so I can feel like I'm living in flow once again. Self-care and healing is a never ending practice, but it sure feels good to know how to help myself on such a deep level, without even having to leave my home.
The biggest blessing for me from all this info has been awareness surrounding my issues and trusting that I am where I am supposed to be. Knowing I have effective tools and an amazing support system is what makes it fun and turns my issues into challenges that I am willing to face and overcome.
If you feel called to explore your own life on a deeper level and learn how you can use these tools to help you with anything you have going on, this month you can grab this course totally free with the purchase of just two oils- which you will learn how to use. Let me know if I can grab you a spot ☺️🙏🏽✨
This is my good friend and brother in the Lord, Brandon Bell and his mother Teresa. Brandon reached out to Christina and I one evening as the Lord directed him our way. We were able to refer Brandon to Good Landing Recovery where he was able to enter the program, find the help he needed and encounter God in a way he never imagined! I am eternally grateful to the Lord for radically changing Brandon’s life! To Trey Lewis and the staff at Good Landing; thank you so much for all you have done, all you continue to do, and for your obedience and service to the Lord!

“Demi Lovato @ddlovato said it best, “one of the hardest things was learning I was worth recovery.” There are days i feel like I don’t deserve it or it’s not a possibility for me. I am constantly at war with myself on why I want recovery. I destroyed my body for a piece of mind I never got & I know recovery is helping me towards a healthy and happy place. It is for sure one of the hardest things I’ve done but I’m doing it. Starve your self hatred, not your body.💛✨” @alyylambb ••This beautiful girl is my sister in law. She has been in treatment for the last 2 months for an eating disorder. She is such a strong young women and she has inspired me to bring help and awareness to issues that I am very passionate about. This year I will be offering a free hair service each month to someone in recovery or struggling from depression, addiction, self-harm, anxiety, or an eating disorder. YOU ARE IMPORTANT and YOU ARE NOT ALONE. If you would like to share your story to help and inspire others please DM or text me.

If you haven't seen the other habits, check out my last postings.
Let's go on with the next habit:
Habits to control urges and get superpowers faster
2. Cold Showers:
Cold showers are very helpful in increasing willpower and getting your urges in control.
It's going to be really hard at first to start taking cold showers. But once you start doing it everyday for a week you will realize that it wasn't that hard after all. It will become a part of your routine. Just like brushing your teeth. I would recommend taking a cold shower starting today.
Benefits Of Cold showers
Increased willpower. Increased Focus. You don't feel stress. Anger is under control. You don't have these outbursts of anger and frustration. Increased alertness and confidence.
See you tomorrow

The driving force behind the videos I make is to make you guys laugh. Yes, baking is a lot of fun for me and I like sharing that with you, but seeing joy come from the silliness of my videos is what really inspires me to do this. That’s why when a situation very close to my heart started generating an incredible amount of hate, I couldn’t wrap my head around it. Why and how do some people get joy out of putting others down?
I wanted to share my experience with you, so I made a video that is a little out of the ordinary, but it’s one that’s extra special to me. ❤️
This may not be the way I’d hoped to introduce my fiancé to all of you, but his situation has inspired me to speak up. Over the past few months, I have witnessed so much hate, so many ignorant comments, and more than a handful of purely evil words, all directed at the man that I love. A man that is kind-hearted, giving, and truly, genuinely cares about others. He’s the type of guy that this world needs.
Addiction is not a simple matter. It is not black and white. It is certainly not an identity. And it’s spreading like wildfire in our communities.
We must always remember that addicts are humans, they are deserving of love, and spreading hate only adds cancer to the epidemic. Their addiction forces them to make irrational decisions, act in ways that are beyond hurtful, and defy their own morals. It’s not our job to understand their struggles; we can’t. But they need us. Give help when you can. Be there for others. Have COMPASSION. And just be kind. “It’s not our job to play judge and jury, to determine who is worthy of our kindness and who is not. We just need to be kind, unconditionally and without ulterior motive, even - or rather, especially - when we’d prefer not to be.”
I linked the video in my bio. Thank you so much for taking the time to watch! Love you all. The next video will be back to baking, and back to spreading joy. 😇
