“She never seemed shattered to me; she was a breathtaking mosaic of the battles she’s won.” M. Baker “When someone spews something really hurtful don’t pick it up and hold it and rub it into your heart and snuggle with it and carry it around for a long time. Don’t even put energy into kicking it to the curb. You got to see it and step over it or go around it and keep going. Brené Brown “You don’t always have to find the good in the bad. Some pains are so deep it feels impossible to reframe them. But if you can find something to appreciate in spite of your pain, you’ll have a little hope. And ..read more

“Every day brings new choices.” Martha Beck   “The key to happiness—or that even more desired thing, calmness—lies not in always thinking happy thoughts. No. That is impossible. No mind on earth with any kind of intelligence could spend a lifetime enjoying only happy thoughts.  The key is in accepting your thoughts, all of them, even the bad ones. Accept thoughts, but don’t become them. Understand, for instance, that having a sad thought, even having a continual succession of sad thoughts, is not the same thing as being a sad person.” Matt Haig   “Happiness is not a goal; it’s ..read more

“Today, we are alive – not anesthetized, not sedated, not passed out. Take control of your feelings, and through action, you can change. Today, as every day of sober living, we have a choice.” Ann D. Clark “I have regretted many things while under the influence but I have never regretted sobriety.” a fabulous 4C woman “When I got sober, I thought giving up was saying goodbye to all the fun and all the sparkle, and it turned out to be just the opposite.

“Sometimes, all you need is a break from others needing you, because you need you for a while.” Unknown “Sometimes the path you want to be walking isn’t yet visible. Keep going until you find it—or until you decide it’s time to create it.” Dani DiPirro “Sometimes you simply have to accept that you can’t accomplish as much as you’d like to. If you’re sick, tired, or hurting emotionally, you just have to do what you reasonably can and then give yourself whatever you need to feel better. You may feel like you are falling behind but you’re not failing. You are doing what you need to do to take ca ..read more

“She remembered who she was and the game changed.” Lalah Delia “It’s impossible to do anything effectively when you’re in a panicked or fearful state. Step back. Breathe. Assess. Put things in perspective. Release the urgent need to figure it all out right now. Then act, from a place of calm, knowing you can figure this out if you take it all one slow step at a time.” Lori Deschene “You have everything you need inside of you.” proverb #12 I am a competent woman, and I have much to give life. This is what I am, and I shall know it always. It happened subtly and almost without notice. The self ..read more
