Spent an hour this afternoon with the loveliest ladies! These alpaca darlings live about 2 miles away and, thanks to @lisabest , I discovered @capenewagenfarm & Anne's beautiful shop, brimming over with handspun yarns, luxurious accessories, alpaca socks, and raw fleece. It's a must-see on the MidCoast; especially for knitters and all those who love natural fibers. Summer explorations! #knittersofinstagram #alpacasofinstagram #staycation #handknit #midcoastmaine
I need a timeout, need to gather myself. And I’m not too old to miss my Mom. • There’s something to be said for grinding, taking bold action to pursue big things, and representing and promoting a lifestyle that goes against today’s status quo. • It’s also draining, and I’m still trying to figure out what balance means. I’ve always lived by extremes. • So, I’m heading back to see my family this weekend and taking time to feed myself so I can be the best I can be for my friends, family, and clients. • You can only give so much without filling up your tank. Take some time to be a little selfish. In my experience, it’s one of the more selfless things one can do. • #onlinetrainer #onlinetraining #personaltrainers #grouptraining #smallgrouptraining #nutritioncoach #trainingprogram #weightlosscoach #wellnesscoach #healthjourney #journeytohealth #makingchanges #smallchanges #weightlossresults #weightlossinspo #weightlossbeforeandafter #igweightloss #fitnessprogress #gymprogress #gymfitness #wedorecover #sobriety #addictionrecovery #mytruth #mystory #selfacceptance #selfloveisthebestlove #soberlife #soberliving #sobermovement

You can allow your past to make you bitter or make you better - the choice is yours. In the beginning of my sober journey, I knew I had a rough road ahead of me. It had taken me several years to create the chaos that was my life, and I couldn’t expect it to change overnight. I don’t regret my past anymore. I wouldn’t be the person that I am today without it, and I kind of like myself today. 😉 We can make the best out of almost anything. For me, my past has made me stronger, kinder, and more understanding of people’s shortcomings. Even the hardships that I have experienced in sobriety have made me better on the other side. I just had to be willing to allow the pain to take me there...
For the past few weeks I have felt tired. Weary and displaced. Though this is very uncomfortable and exhausting I know that it is the precursor to expansion and even more abundance. I have tuned into more of my favorite teachers in print and social media to keep my fire burning. I have reached out to friends and meditated even more. Nonetheless I have felt worn out. All I have been able to do is keep showing up and not use, abuse or harm. Today I mustered this up. These words came to me These words I needed to hear Within myself I hear them “Just keep showing up!” If I say I am tired Some will say I am creating that If I say I feel weak today Some will say I am not wise I want to keep going, Do not tell me that I only need faith Today, I need courage No, actually, I need a word of encouragement You can say, write or sing to me I can hear you, read you, see you But until I hear myself and feel for my words I must “just keep showing up” I will rise up Sometimes quickly Sometimes slowly I will keep showing up -Hal Henson #sober #soberlife #soberliving #bipolar #abrahamhicks #lawofattraction #perseverança #keepshowingup #encouragement #writersofinstagram

But for the grace of God......
This last weekend I had my first "visit" with my husband since he's been in #rehab He spent most of the time talking about the guilt and shame that he feels for draining our bank account time and time again, lying, having affairs, leaving me with a broken down car and 3 jobs to make ends meet, etc. I know that feeling remorse is an important part of the process but it really seems like he's stuck there . . • "You will never win when you're fighting yourself."- @erin.b.hill.333 . I really like the way that @grahamcookebbh puts it too... • "You have freedom to stop working on the old you that died at the cross and start living as the new true you in Christ." • • I just wish that my husband would realize that HE HOLDS THE KEY. JESUS GAVE IT TO HIM!! I don't hold his mistakes over his head and neither does Jesus so he needs to stop it! This cycle of self condemnation is part of what has triggered him to use in the first place. He sees his failures so clearly but is slow to take note of his victories. That breaks my heart and only God can break that pattern of death in his life. #prayerispowerful • Where the spirit of the Lord is there is FREEDOM!! 2 Corinthians 3:17.. • There is NO CONDEMNATION for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:1‭-‬2 .. • #thisisus #naranon #alanon #celebraterecovery #coda #codependentnomore #codependency #freedom #speaklife #sobriety #acceptthethingsicannotchange #soberliving #getclean #stayclean #soberlife #iloveanaddict #loveispatient #betrayaltrauma #shereadstruth #sustanceabuse #dailyinspiration #instagood #boundaries #Love #marriage #perspective #addiction

A way to a woman's heart when she's hormonal and it's hot...Dark chocolate and La Croix? 🍫🍹 1. Don't judge me for the dark chocolate in my hand - it's a SUPERFOOD!! Plus, it helps with cramps and makes me happy! 😝 2. Go ahead, say something about my chin and the crazy look on my face!! 😜 3. I'm grateful for my flex eating plan with this program because if I want dark chocolate, I can have it... I struggle with PMDD (Pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder) - I know it sounds all snazzy, but it's just basically PMS on crack. Anyone else have trouble when they're hormonal???
You just keep going. You are allowed to change. Transformation is a beautiful process & we are rooting for you.
Lol, this made me laugh!! I don’t want any alcohol in my house though. Anyone else a fan of Fixer Upper?
Now that’s true ❤️

It’s actually a place where your dreams and spirit die.💀 I heard from someone awhile ago that the richest place on Earth is a graveyard. Where countless of dreams are buried and go unrealized. I’m not going out like that Fuck.That. #nocomfortzone
🖤🖤”Darling, you’re different.”
Thinking about life... this is my Daughter and her half brother. Spent too many years resenting my ex husband, i forgot to see the beauty in our life... my ex moved on and had another child, I was stuck resenting everything, need to appreciate and be grateful for life. #soberaf #soberlife #soberissexy #soberliving
In our fourth Wellness Wednesday, New Freedom Academy's Chef Adam shows you how to prepare a delicious dish: pan roasted chicken breast with asparagus, quinoa, and balsamic glaze.
Completely inspired by words of a song at this afternoons school performance of Mary Poppins. Had a few tears too - there is something about children singing that sets off the waterworks 🚰🚰 It goes without saying that obviously all the children were amazing but the surprising bit (for me) was how inspirational I found it. #anythingcanhappen #anythingcanhappenifyouletit #marypoppins #inspiration #inspired #changeforsuccess #positivity #positiveattitude #sobriety #sober #soberlife #soberliving
Day 1 of a new path. it’s been a decade since I finished high school. 10 years later, where am I? A lifestyle of drinking, partying, unhealthy food and total laziness. I have so much untapped potential. I’m fed up. Let’s do this. 💪 #transform #transformationstory #transformationwednesday #soberliving #unfuckyourself #improvements
Maintaining sobriety becomes easier over time, especially after learning new ways to manage cravings and triggers. After recovering from substance use disorder is part of the journey to lifelong sobriety. Use these simple tips to develop a strong strategy to maintain sobriety after drug addiction treatment.⠀ ⠀ 1. Seek Continuing Care⠀ Temptations and cravings aren't a sign of weakness, but may indicate it is time to seek help. Help is available at all stages of recovery, even after a relapse.⠀ ⠀ 2. Develop New Hobbies⠀ Hobbies are essential tools for many people who are learning to manage an addiction. An engaging hobby reduces cravings by capturing attention and encouraging active participation. Any activity is suitable, but opting for active hobbies like creating art and spending time outdoors is usually preferable. Passive activities like playing online games aren't as healthy as hobbies that engage both your mind and body.⠀ ⠀ 3. Manage Stress Effectively⠀ Stress can trigger a relapse for those learning to manage substance use disorder. Stress management techniques are often incorporated into drug and alcohol treatment plans to encourage long-term sobriety.⠀ ⠀ 4. Choose Supportive Friends⠀ One of the most difficult aspects of recovering from substance abuse disorder is adjusting to life without drugs and alcohol. Although cravings are often less frequent when old friends aren't part of daily life, temptations and cravings may still occur.⠀ ⠀ 5. Find Motivation⠀ Maintaining motivation may be as simple as keeping a journal of successes or volunteering to assist others in the community. Look for new inspirations every day and practice mindfulness, or staying focused on the present moment, to stay motivated.⠀ ⠀ Professional drug addiction treatment provides the building blocks for a healthy, sober lifestyle. Contact the Haven Rehabilitation center in Utah to learn new ways to become and stay sober.⠀ ⠀ #thehaven #havenhelps #slc #utah #recovery #addiction #soberliving #utahrecovery #mentalhealth #substanceabuse #treatment
#breastimplantillness A timeline: . I don’t often share anything on this page that isn’t directly related to growth and mindset but any platform I have to create awareness about this is so important to me. . You ready for this? . 2005 Crohn’s diagnosis (active but managed) . 2006-2010 Many happy days . 2011 Breast Augmentation . 2012 Memory loss/ brain fog and chronic fatigue, chronic infections (chest, sinus, bladder), Multiple emergency room visits and 90 days of antibiotics to try and clear up chronic infections. Chronic pain worse than my drug free childbirth. Swollen joints to the point I couldn’t walk down the stairs. Blood loss. Unable to eat solid food or stand long enough to pump my own gas. Steroids to get me ‘through’ my wedding and honeymoon. Put on Crohn’s med #1 and removed due to severe reaction. Put on Crohn’s miracle drug #2 and removed due to ‘one in a million reaction’ where I lost feeling in my leg. . 2013 put on medication for depression. Removed one foot of small intestine due to blockage. Off work for most of the year. . I could go on- I still struggle with symptoms, depression and the affects all this has had on my life and I can’t possibly take another piece of my small intestine out knowing that my body is fighting itself because of the foreign objects that live in my chest. . If only I knew then what I knew now. T minus 30 days until I get a second chance at life. . I am so grateful that this was brought to my attention months ago by women who weren’t scared to speak their truth. I am so grateful and I hope my story falls on someone who needs to hear it 💜🙏🏻 . . #themindsetrebellion #mindsetmatters #mindsetiseverything #healthymind #wahm #momlife #girlmom #momboss #9to5nomore #entrepreneurlife #freedomchaser #pathwithpurpose #startyourlife #airdrielife #airdriemoms #yycmoms #albertalife #livingwithcrohns #crohnswarrior #sobermom #soberliving
It feels indescribable, having reunited with my son, after, so many years. I'm grateful for this opportunity, to get to know him. A trip to the Detroit Zoo, was stellar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anything is possible, through sobriety...but nothing is possible, without it. There is no manual, on parenting and how to be a father but being present and patient, is so crucial. My son is my 💓 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's easy to feel guilt, for the past and fear, an unforseen future... because that's what the disease of addiction can cause. You are not that person, anymore, though. Rediscover your innocence and inner child because that's where connection to our youth, meets. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Taggin' - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🗄️🗃️📂 #fatherandsons #zoolife #soberlife #soberliving #reunitedanditfeelssogood

Happy Wednesday! Today we have @carlybbenson on the podcast talking to us about living intentionally. She’s not only one of our speakers at JOYride but she’s also an inspiration and guide to many people in recovery, as well as in the yoga community. Carly stepped into this concept of #livingintentionally during her road to recovery as she began changing her life completely. Today she uses all she’s learned throughout her journey to guide others through their personal journeys. #BeThatOnePercent #SoberLiving
Sometimes the best thing you can do is to learn from your mistakes and to move forward #TuesdayThoughts
Even though he has cheated, lied, stolen from me and my family, destroyed our marriage, etc. I'll admit that I've felt like this towards my #addictedlovedone I am slowly learning to #gethealthy and not give him more of myself than what he is able to respect #guardyourheart but it is still a struggle. Can somebody say #codependent #getalife #riseaboveit When we source out happiness from another person instead of learning the power of taking control of our own happiness, we ultimately give them the power to destroy us. #codependentnomore #codependentrecovery #naranon #coda #codependent #codependency #recovery #notmyproblem #loveyourself #selfcare #healthy #relationshipquotes #dailyinspiration #instagood #boundaries #sobriety #soberliving #getclean #stayclean #soberlife #iloveanaddict #loveispatient #celebraterecovery
