What people think of you is really none if your business! I used to be completely consumed by anxiety of what others thought…  thank goodness them days are goneskiiis!!

So true! I used to beat the crap out of myself for making mistakes…  and I rarely ever learnt from them anyway. Now I can accept mistakes for what they are, little glitches, which usually don’t even make a big dent in my life. And now finallyy CAN learn from my mistakes! Every tumble, every growing pain teaches me something. If I didn’t make mistakes I’d learn nothing and never grow emotionally or spiritually. Mistakes used to feel like the end of the world for me. Making a mistake meant I was a useless piece of crap. Not anymore. Thank God my thinking is finally getting straight. Finally learning, albeit slowly, to let it go. #mistakes #learning #living #sobriety #happiness #bestoftheday #quotes #picoftheday

Spent the day with this chocolate fiend jitter bug. Meeting this morning with her mum (my sponsor), then lunch, then museum! Awesome day. This kid is a handful but I love her to bits. #giftsofsobriety #love #friends

That’s something I truly am proud of - that I’m still around, still alive, still striving to better myself. I can’t take all the credit obviously; my higher power & some specific people definitely played a huge part too. But from all the times I’ve fallen & wanted to give up & let it be over forever, I got back up and held on a little longer. And things always got better again. Life is full of hurdles. I’ve tripped over a LOT of them - Depression, eating disorders, being bullied, self harm, broken hearts, suicide attempts, psych wards, drug & alcohol abuse and addiction, losing jobs, Losing friends, losing my health, Losing my mind, getting sober, etc etc. 
I can be very hard on myself. I find it hard to be happy with myself, accept that what I am and what I do is “enough.” But i am proud of myself that I’ve made it this far. I honestly never even thought I’d live this long. But at 26, I’m still here, incredibly grateful to be alive and sober today. For me that is a HUGE success!
