86-87/365 | #thisisrecovery365
My day yesterday ended with a slip in my recovery. I reached out for help & my sponsor led me through survival mode: getting through the night without further damaging myself followed by making a plan for this morning (oh, and sticking to it).
Then while it was still dark out, drinking my coffee in my Little Mermaid pajamas this morning, I found an email from my @aweinspired_ family reminding me that The AWE List has officially launched, full of inspiring, badass survivor profiles- including my own.
I went to the link & read through my profile. Then I read through several others. And then more. And more. Because the entire point of AWE as a brand is to honor & unite survivors of ALL afflictions.
I was reminded that just getting out of bed today & choosing to do battle again makes me a survivor and, also, I was reminded that as a survivor, I'm in the best company possible: others who are choosing to fight each day, regardless of the specificities of their war.
I was honored from day one of being contacted to partner with AWE, but today that honor has melted into nothing but pure gratitude. Being an inaugural member of The AWE List has saved me today, in so, so many ways. Because AWE stands for Alive We're Empowered.
Because AWE stands for courage.
And, most importantly, for survival.
Read my story at aweinspired.com/community (or direct link in bio). Once you're there- kick your shoes off & stay awhile. Find your own inspiration. Find a survivor who motivates you. Find the words that give you those chills- the ones that remind you you're not alone.
We're never alone.
Because we are survivors.
Thank you @aweinspired_ for keeping me going today. #ALIVEandEMPOWERED
