Instagram post by @space_witch666 Frances Bean Cobain

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 )

    WOW!! Dropping some serious and awesome knowledge right there!! Crazy thing is, that it ALL was something that I myself needed to to hear, in this exact moment in my life. It's kind of awesome when someone so much younger than yourself can still share & teach you something, and also help you as well. Thank you Bean...

    This is probably thee most inspiring, honest and mature thing I have ever read; not because you are Frances Bean Cobain but because it is honest and true and very sincere. Well done to you and more power to you and others who have decided to take that first step, I can't even imagine how difficult it is. I think it was Dr. Martin Luther King who said, "you don't need to see the whole stare case, just take the first step" 👍

    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"
