💯💯💯 A C C U R A T E ! - Most people couldn’t walk into a NA or AA meeting while listening to our raw stories of what we are currently going through emotionally that day. This is why FELLOWSHIPS were created. The steps are effective and doing the right thing builds your self esteem and confidence. - Stick with the people who love you unconditionally, won’t judge you and always support you no matter what. #MyAddictionStories . . . . . . . . . . . . . #addictionrecovery #gratitude #selfhelp #sober #recovery #support #addiction #recoveryisworthit #justfortoday #mentalhealth #health #healthylifestyle #positivethinking #community #recoverycommunity #youarenotalone #poetry #addicts #dontgiveup #selflove #shareyourstory #filmmaking #yoga #namaste #positivevibes #love #mentalwellness #recoveringaddict
Photo credit @ldschurch www.lds.org “Of Saints, of Ships, and of the Sea” [Richard M. Romney: LDS Ensign, January 2014] Because so much of Christ’s mortal ministry took place on or near the Sea of Galilee, it is not surprising that images of the sea are found throughout the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, as well as in many hymns. Peter and Andrew were casting nets when the Savior said, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men” (Matthew 4:19). Christ calmed the storm, and men marveled. “What manner of man is this,” they said, “that even the winds and the sea obey him!” (Matthew 8:27). The hymn “Master, the Tempest Is Raging” (Hymns, no. 105) captures the drama of this powerful event and turns it into an analogy for the soul rescued from torrents of sin and anguish, comforted by the Savior’s message, “Peace, be still.” On the shores of Galilee, Christ went up on a mount and taught the marvelous sermon that contains the Beatitudes (see Matthew 5:3–12; Luke 6:20–23). At their request, He allowed devils to enter into swine that then ran into the water and perished (see Matthew 8:28–32). And He instructed Peter to catch a fish, find a coin inside, and use it to pay tribute to Caesar (see Matthew 17:27). During and after His mortal life, the Savior told His Apostles where to fish, and their nets were completely filled (see Luke 5:3–9; John 21:6–11). The resurrected Christ taught Peter, pointing at the ships and fish of his former life and asking, “Lovest thou me more than these?” He then committed him to “feed my sheep” (John 21:15–17). 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

I don’t know all the answers, if I did, I’d probably be stuck in the same place. Be a “learner”. Why make the mistake, if someone has already experienced it before you!?!. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #listen #recovery #addiction #addictionrecovery #soberlife #sober #success #inspiration #awayout #journey #12steps #experiencestrengthandhope #aa #substanceabuse #treatment #detox #thoughtoftheday #quotes #quoteoftheday
Martial arts is something that came in to my life in a real low period. When I had so many injuries from over exercising that going to the gym wasnt an option anymore.... It makes me feel like a warrior and has pushed me through and beyond so many comfort zones. But like my life, I either do things over the top or not at all. And I am working on that balance. I can see myself heading towards a depressive episode and I do not want to go... but my psych has 'prescribed' minimum and maximum times to exercise each week. So i know I need to push myself and go.... and I know it makes me feel better... and each time I go it is one step closer to my next belt...... So I will go and push through the mental pain and distress.... #recovery #recoveryispossible #ednosrecovery #selfharmrecovery #addictionrecovery #edrecovery #recoverywarrior #recoverywin #depression #anxietyrecovery #anxiety #actuallyborderline #actuallybpd #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #bpd #badday #cantdothis #exercise #exerciseformentalhealth

And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today.  When I am disturbed,  It is because I find some person, place, thing, situation -- Some fact of my life -- unacceptable to me,  And I can find no serenity until I accept  That person, place, thing, or situation  As being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment.  Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake.  Until I could accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober;  Unless I accept life completely on life's terms,  I cannot be happy.  I need to concentrate not so much  On what needs to be changed in the world  As on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes. #alcoholism #drugaddiction #anxiety #depression #drugs #alcohol #clean #awareness #rehab #recoveryisworthit #serenity #drugfree #soberlife #addictionrecovery #addict #sobriety #recovery #cleanandsober #cleanandserene #courage #hope #inspire #inspiration #treatment #onedayatatime #intervention #dopelessrecovery

Truth! I've tried to do it alone, without telling anyone I was struggling before (especially the real people in my actual life). Why? Because 1) I didn't want to worry them and 2) mostly, there is a lot of shame there. Shame in the idea I may be weak, or a failure, or worthless because I struggle so deeply with something I can't even put words to most of the time. Shame shame shame. Yet I've realised that harbouring that shame has kept me stuck, and it has kept me drinking when I really didn't want to be - for years and years. But right now, I'm happy to say I've come out of the closet with those closest to me and by doing so I feel that I've been able to release myself from the need to protect them cuz I need that energy for my own self right now! And that's actually OK! There has been such a sense of relief in just letting go of that and in being honest about where I'm at. And thank you also to those who have decided to follow my journey, to those of you who have left comments and messaged me: it makes every bit of difference to know that I am nowhere near as alone as I can often feel. So thank you and love to you xxx . . . . . #inrecovery #mysoberlife #hipsobriety #hss #livingsober #soberlife #sobriety #mysobriety #myrecovery #myrecoveryjourney #addictionrecovery #weareaddicted #addictedsociety #youarenotalone #notalone #sobercommunity #breakingthecycle #hopeinrecovery #hopeful #recoverywarrior #thepowerofvulnerability #bevulnerable #shame #ditchtheshame #soberinspiration #alcoholism

So here's a bit of honesty. I am still finishing the last painting. The ironic part is that I have been receiving messages saying, " I am almost done with my piece, can I still submit?" - Not to be a hypocrite, I say, "YES!" So here is a prayer for all the artists that get caught up in finishing one more detail, have to change the entire composition, thinks their art sucks - and must start over -- don't give up --- just keep painting. You got this. https://www.carinfausett.com/the-resurrection-exhibit/ #artdeadlines #resurrectionexhibit #carinfausettart #12stepsart #addictionrecovery #justkeeppainting #balancefamily #godisleadingtheway
Rarely⠀ RARELY HAVE we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path. Those who do not recover are people who cannot or will not, completely give themselves to this simple program, usually men and women who are constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves.

Results! My goal was a yoga body and I am still shocked at my progress. In the back of my head I was like um I wonder if it's even possible?! Apparently it is! Anyone can have a yoga body if you do enough yoga! I am so thankful for all my teachers @hmyboise and my trainer @delbarka for being such amazing inspiration and teaching me how to love myself I had no idea why I ended up in Boise Idaho of all places and certainly never expected to be a yoga teacher! Who knew that moving to random Idaho was so important for me. I doubt I would have committed to yoga in a larger city. I would not have been surrounded by healthy examples who inspired me to push myself like in Boise where being healthy and active are required it seems!! #godry #drydiet #godry #healthyandwealthy #soberissexy #dailywellness #selfcare #wellness #addictionrecovery #addiction #sober #transformation #recoveroutloud #soberyogi #weightlossjourney #thisisboise

So many of us live in this perpetual fear of messing up. We avoid trying things out of the pure fear that we’re going to fail. But why? 🤔 Failure is part of the human condition. Too many of us have this false idea that anyone on this planet has reached perfection. No matter who the person is, they’ve experienced failure. The most successful people on the planet have failed NUMEROUS times. So why are you so afraid of failure? 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 In most cases, our fear of failure comes from our family. Either we’ve set expectations up for how we must never failure so our family sees in a certain way, or we had a very judgmental family who will criticize us for our failure. Whether you’re your worst critic or the people in your life are, I say SCREW THAT NOISE 🙌 Go out and try new things. Face your fears and try new things. Get out of your comfort zone. You’ll be doing more than most, and you’ll also begin to build a new type of confidence and empowerment in yourself 💪 You’ll begin to embrace failure and lose your false hope of perfection. Best of all, you’ll begin to be less affected by what people in your life think of you...GO OUT THERE AND FAIL YOUR WAY TO SUCCESS! . . . . . #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalillnessawareness #endthestigma #themighty #depressionmemes #depressionkills #depressionisreal #depressionhelp #mentalhealthwarrior #depressionawareness #depressionvideos #anxietyquotes #anxietymemes #anxietyfree #anxietysucks #anxietyawareness #anxietyisreal #anxietysupport #anxietyproblems #anxietywarrior #mentalhealthday #mentalbreakdown #sobrietyrocks #addictionrecovery #soberissexy #soberliving #sobriety #ODAAT #mentalhealth #semicolonproject
I think we need to stand up and give ourselves a huge round of applause. - Now, I’m not talking about some lame slow clap that comes out of obligation as we look around and reluctantly decide to join in. I’m talking about a super loud, rip roaring, floor stomping, fist pumping, cab whistle worthy, roof raising cheer that goes on for hours – and comes from the bottom of our hearts. - It’s time to see ourselves in each other’s eyes and stand in solidarity as we make the daily decision to choose recovery over pain. It’s how we shine a light on the miracles that show up every time a smart and powerful woman wakes up and recognizes her worth. Knowing that by taking control and improving the quality of her life…she improves the lives of everyone around her. - After all, she is without a doubt, part of something bigger than herself – a tribe of fierce and courageous women who have chosen to face our fears, head on. So we can step into a bigger and bolder life. - With this support comes a mutual understanding. A knowing that the magic will reveal itself to each of us individually and collectively. Little by little.One experience. - One awakening at a time… . . . . . #soberlife #sober #recovery #sobriety #soberissexy #sherecovers #soberliving #addiction #love #recoveryisworthit #soberaf #addictionrecovery #motivation #onedayatatime #wedorecover #sobermovement #cleanandsober #happy #drugfree #recoveryispossible #hope #grateful #alcoholfree #mentalhealth #alcoholism #anxiety #love #goodvibes

Did you know Chicago is America’s sixth drunkest city?? #recoveryguidance
Chicago has a long, Rich, drunk history. I guess that’s why Chi ranks at number 6 for America’s drunkest City. #recoveryguidance
This cabin. A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into making this cabin liveable since we bought this property last June. The forest fires last summer set us back in every way. Kevin left to work up north to get us caught up and as he left, our truck broke down. So I pulled up my socks and got to taste what true loneliness feels like. Stranded and alone in the wilderness. I had no idea what I was in for. Frozen batteries, frozen pipes, 2 feet of snow within 72 hours, food rationing, endless shoveling, very cold nights, wet wood, not enough books to read, generator issues, intense inward reflection.. copious amounts of tears, a seemingly endless ache. I ate fruit for a month straight, following the great Dr . morse detox protocol . I craved, I cried, I ached. My healing crisis consisted of acne and emotional release. Once my kidneys started filtering again, my skin cleared right up and my life long brain fog dissipated, I let go of so much past pain and hate. I felt alive. I broke free from addictions to acid forming food, caffeine, alcohol and tabaco. I learned to love myself. I learned to appreciate everything I had instead of dwelling on what I didn't. I was free from all the addictions and distractions that had never allowed me to reflect so deeply, to dig so deeply and limited my time to get to know myself, the real me. Well now everything has changed, hasn't it? I am a new me! A more confident, assured, self respecting me! I see the difference in how I dress, I hear it in the way I now speak, I feel it in the way I think so clearly and the energy I now have. .. Fruit and solitude saved my life. .. The moral of this story is that no matter how shit your situation may seem to be, a set back, a dead end, a cliff of insanity, a closed door.. are simply reminders to step back, re-examine, re-adjust, re-plan and refine, master and sometimes take a break from, to breathe and relax. We are so over stimulated, where is our time to truely regenerate? I spent my whole life either with or as a toxic person. I will spend the rest of my life as an example that true healing is most definitely possible. Have you healed with plants? I'd love to hear!💚
