I spent the past weekend in Portland. There were no concerts. Instead, there was a house full of sober women who gathered in an awesome, trendy neighbourhood to marvel at the unbelievable journey we are all on.
Stories were told, bracelets were made, gallons of coffee were drunk. We shopped.
Every moment filled me up. I went there already full and it just grew and grew.
I have found enlightenment. Inner peace. I didn’t even realize that was what I was searching for during those years of anxiety and depression and addiction. All those years of suffering alone and feeling different, awkward and less than.
I am none of those things. I am everything. We all are. And when we get together and show our true selves it is a celebration of life.
If you wondering about how you could possibly live a life without alcohol, just know it can be spectacular. Take the step. Embrace life.
Stillness and peace
