Getting Sober [Episode 1]
In this episode, I share how getting sober woke me up to the power of taking responsibility for my life. I know that raising my children is a moment-to-moment, second-to-second practice of non-codependency, and my sobriety gave me the clarity to even be able to try. If I can do it, anyone can do it.
The first step in my sobriety was agency. The next step was choosing motherhood. And the last step was the choice to stop lying to myself, and then to everybody else. I explain the illusion of alcohol as your authentic self, and how I’ve learned that true love and intimacy actually comes from being present. As a human being and mother, I now strive to allow space for all my feelings, as raw and uncomfortable as that may be, so I can also make space for theirs.
What I’ve found so beautiful about evolution is the choice of what to keep and what no longer comes forward — after all, choice involves discernment. I’m actively seeking the truth and to feel into what is true for me. I offer you the same. Thank you for listening and thank you to my podcast producer Media Midwife Ahri Golden for helping me bring my story to life.
