I thought I would start this post by sharing a pure moment in Oahu surrounded by nature & love. This moment is a representation of who I am on February 13th, 2018. It feels significant here & now because it’s my 2nd sober birthday. It’s an interesting and kaleidoscopic decision to share my feelings about something so intimate in a public forum . The fact that I’m sober isn’t really public knowledge, decidedly and deliberately. But I think it’s more important to put aside my fear about being judged or misunderstood or typecast as one specific thing. I want to have the capacity to recognize & observe that my journey might be informative, even helpful to other people who are going through something similar or different. It is an everyday battle to be in attendance for all the painful, bazaar, uncomfortable, tragic, fucked up things that have ever happened or will ever happen. Self destruction, toxic consumption and deliverance from pain is a lot easier to adhere to. Undeniably, for myself and those around me choosing to be present is the best decision I have ever made. How we treat our bodies directly correlates to how we treat our souls. It’s all interconnected. It has to be. So I’m gonna take today to celebrate my vibrant health and the abundance of happiness, gratitude, awareness, compassion, strength, fear, loss, wisdom, and the myriad of other messy, raw emotions I feel constantly. They inform who I am, what my intentions are, who i want to be and they force me to acknowledge my boundaries/limitations. I claim my mistakes as my own because I believe them to be a contribution to a higher education. I am constantly evolving. The moment any evolution ceases is the moment I disservice myself and ultimately those I love. As cheesy and cornball as it sounds life does get better, if you want it to. I’ll never claim I know something other people don’t. I only know what works for me and seeking to escape my life no longer works for me.
Peace, love, empathy (I’m going to reclaim this phrase and redefine it as something that’s filled with hope and goodness and health, because I want to )

    The raindow line of light could be your signature. In fashion too. There is an old counting crows demo "lightning" and the painter Barnett Newman who talks about Meyer Shapiro concept of the subject and object in a work of art. He painted a zip. "Streaks of light." Dealing with physical impression

    Peace, love, empathy, the first time I read this, it hit me hard. Peace, LOVE, Empathy, it was so much hope and faith that whomever read it had to see it for what it was. From the age of 9 I reveled in his artistry. Here I am at 33 and I understand him even more, in this decaying world what else is there but peace love and empathy? 🙏🏼♥️🌊🤙🏼

    6 years ago, today, I unknowingly drank myself into oblivion for the last time; made my last outrageous drunken public scene; disappeared into the night, despite a massive search effort, for the last time; tried to punish myself, destroy myself. . . I woke with my last hang over and knew this wasn't the answer. I needed to be Present. Best. Decision. Ever. Congratulations on 2 years being Fully Alive! Thanks for sharing because "it works if you work it"

    I'm almost 1 year sober in less than a month and this post makes me want to not be sober for some reason. It's just really well said in a way that I want to deteriate it. But alas , I won't. Thank you for your honesty . D:

    I stumbled upon this post on such a perfect day. Today is my one week sober milestone and it feels really good. It also feels tough because I am surrounded by so many people that tell me I don't have a problem and that I can moderate things. The thing is, I too was escaping from my life and I would be lying if I said I hadn't ever tried to end it completely. Reading your line "trying to escape my life no longer works for me" might have just helped save me. I feel like my addictions don't serve me. Wanting to escape life doesn't serve me. Being present serves me the most purpose I have ever felt and for that, I want to thank you Frances. Thank you for your honesty, your light and your presence. ✨ best of luck with each sober birthday. Sending you positivity and love, from Oregon. 💜

    The body is a temple. What you do with it shows how much you respect it's purpose.
