My Recovery Rewind – Part 4

This was originally published on January 9, 2018. **Disclaimer: I had a plan for my token posts. I had a timeline.

Skeletons 1.4 – My Recovery Reconsidered

This was originally posted on January 1, 2018. I no longer identify with these feelings, as I’m in a totally different place today.

If it’s still in hereContinue reading “Skeletons 1.3 – My Rebellion”

Skeletons 1.1 – My Realization

Originally published November 14, 2017 Realization: The Story of My Life – Before & After Recovery These shoes have kept finding their way into every closet I’ve had for the past 8 years or longer.

A Rebel is Coming Out (of the Closet)

For the remainder of the year, I’ll be republishing posts. This was my very first blog post published on November 13, 2017. I finally tackled the daunting task of purging, sorting and organizing my over cluttered closet yesterday. That shit show gave me a small dose of anxiety every time I walked in. It progressivelyContinue reading “A Rebel is Coming Out (of the Closet)”
