I went away this weekend. ————
Travelled to a new city. ————
Met some new people. —————
Hung out with some old friends. —————
Ate a bunch of food. Danced a little. Sang a lot. Smiled more. —————
On Thursday night I weighed myself. Freaked out. Texted a friend. Texted my dietitian. Ate pizza afterwards because dinner. —————
Spent a lot of time these 2 days reminding myself that just because my weight is doing its thing... doesn’t mean I can’t do mine. —————
Here’s to peace, with others, with ourselves, with being in a process.
Foto swipe van de hal !
Niet de mooiste foto s is ook nog lang niet af ! Maar even of een idee te geven .. de vloer ligt ! Op de foto s zie je waar de tussen muur heeft gezeten ! Nu een grote ruimte geworden dus ! Alle muren zijn het volgende wat we gaan aanpakken en daarna de trap kaal . Maar is nu al een hele verbetering geloof me 🙈 daarna willen we boven de muren stucen en wil ik de bruine kleur door de gehele woonkamer ! Ja is indd best donker maar valt in het echt reuze mee ! Is een grote kamer met mega veel licht en ramen ! Maakt het dus heel knus en warm ! Beneden doe ik wit ! Vind dat ook fris en maakt weer ruimtelijker ! Daarna heb ik nog een trap in de Kamer die ook nog kaal moet ! Genoeg te doen dus nog 😅. Het kastje van gister is inmiddels ook alweer verkocht 😊😍 kan dus weer op zoek naar een mooi kastje om me op uit te leven ! Love iT !! Verder zit ik hier met een Jane ( dochter van 12 ) die loopt te zeuren over een meet en great bij @landelijke_stijl_en_wonen

The problem with having long legs everything looks too short on ya 😢😂
Dont you love when facebook reminds you of what a degenerate you used to be.
Left pic: 22 years old; drinking snorting, and popping myself to an early grave. The booze and opiate swell is real.
Right pic: 30 years old. 5+ years of sobriety under the belt. Personal trainer and nutrition coach.. Not to mention backpacking through Europe at this time. ( Bucket list ) "We straighten out spiritually, and then mentally and physically." Yes it is a direction.
Transformations are for the superficial, I deal with full revolutions.

Today it's 100 days since my last drink and 271 days since my accident and rock bottom!
After over 25 years of abuse it’s an amazing achievement so I’m feeling pretty proud of myself today. It’s not been easy but then I never expected it to be. My strength has been tested at times but that’s ok as I’m always learning what my triggers are and where my weaknesses lie. Always mindful that I have 2 choices...I am forever in recovery - or - I drink and die.
Thank you to everyone that has given me support over this over the last 10 months, it has helped me so much. Please don’t ever stop though, I need you all as I can’t do it on my own. I feel so very blessed to have such supportive family and friends, and forever grateful to everyone at CGL, especially my peer group friends, thank you all so very much for the bottom of my sober heart. xx

“to thine own self be true”
i sent this silly snapchat to someone the other day, and before i sent it, for some reason i gave it a closer look and got thinking (like usual).
life for me is so different these days. i have settled into sobriety. i attend meetings at least once a week, if not twice (something i said i’d never do) i am fully alert. i have settled into the graduate school routine and finally... i feel like i can breathe full breaths.
for the first time in my life, i FEEL safe in every aspect.
no longer am i clinging to unhealthy relationships. no longer am i clinging to an unhealthy mind of my own. and no longer am i clinging to anything that isn’t serving me. today, the intense need to cling has dissipated. and for the first time, i don’t feel selfish.
life is a whole lot different when I am true to my own self, fully and deeply.
through the AA program and the social work program, i have simultaneously learned a deeper sense of accountability. i have learned to trust me more, because i do have the control of myself and looking to someone or something else for that is destructive. i have learned discipline and most importantly, i have learned the most comfort from being uncomfortable.
there is always a silver lining. the bliss lies is in discovering it.
happy saturday + i love yew.

Hate your job?!?! What are you doing about it?? Seriously. Have you considered exactly what it is that makes you stressed or miserable?
Is it the people/ environment/ nature of the work/ money/ pressure for example?
Once you identify the specifics consider what you can do to change things. * For example, if it’s colleagues can you work on the way you act/ react/ perceive or feel around them?
* If it’s the nature of the work and say you are stuck in an office with a bunch of colleagues when in actual fact you want to work frontline with customers, is it possible to transfer to a different department or do you need to consider a different career?
* Work load and stress the issue?? Is it possible to create new systems or ways of working that are more efficient? Are there other people managing the work load who you could tap up for some advice? If not and the workload is just crazy then maybe it’s time to consider a career change?
Sometimes there are changes to be made that would result in being happier at work, there just not obvious yet.
Other times, the bottom line is you hate your job and you want out. If that’s the case you gotta start doing some exploratory work and research so you are aware of what other opportunities are out there and exactly what it is you want.
Also, get clear on what you can bring to the table. What are you good at? Where are your skills strongest?
If you find it tricky to identify these things then get a friend to help you out, sometimes other people see things in us that we just don’t.

Today I exercised my right to vote 💪🏼 and went to celebrate @wavescoffee
Head out and go exercise your right to vote! —————————————————-
90 days #sober
💜 I feel amazing being able to share this with everybody. The past 90 days have been filled with ups and downs but what I can't deny is that I've been 100% present for every decision that I've made and I am 100% accountable. I can't use alcohol as an excuse. I can't use alcohol as my drug of choice to deal with anxiety and depression. I am dealing with everything. I feel everything and I am able to face everything unlike before when I was using alcohol to numb things that I didn't want to deal with. It's interesting that with alcohol you have to be able to justify the others why you quit. It's not like if you stop doing coke or if you stop smoking meth people understand immediately why you had to quit that, right?But it's definitely been a game-changer for me and in the best way possible. Yes, I have to deal with my anxiety now. Yes, I have to deal with depression and I'm 100% present for every single decision I make but I am accountable. I can't blame it on anything. Whether it be good or bad I take responsibility and learn from it. I am grateful for another beautiful day. And I'm grateful to all of you for all of your support. Have an amazing day!
