Who doesn’t love a little morning motivation from their local coffee shop?!

We all have experiences in life, some good, some bad. This is what makes us human. During these moments we have a choice to make, we can either give in or use these experiences as a life lesson and overcome them. What are some experiences you’ve used to grow from?

Who’s ready to end this week with a Dance Party! Come join us this Saturday for our 7th #sobersaturday event and dance the night away!

RSVP to christine@bigvisionnyc.com or comment below! 💃🏼🕺🏼

Friendly reminder that we can all afford to spread a little more love, especially to those who need it most 💞

It may be Spring but at #BIGVISION HQ, we are still wearing all of our best knitted projects!

Join us tomorrow at 6:30 PM to create some of your own! No experience necessary.

Special thanks to @bigvisionnyc for featuring my story in their “Sober Showcase.” 🙏🏼 Sharing it was harder and scarier than I thought it would be, but if it helps even 1 person to feel less alone and less ashamed, it’s worth it.
I’ll be posting my story and more detailed information on my website soon (LINK IN BIO), along with other recovery stories I’ve been receiving as part of a special “Recover Out Loud Project.” Sharing your story is the bravest thing you can do, and I believe it is the most meaningful way to help end the stigma of addiction. Shame & guilt are, in my opinion, two of the largest contributing factors to relapse. Let’s share our stories and recover out loud together.
You’ll be seeing more of these stories on my website (LINK IN BIO) and Instagram soon. If you’d like to be a part of the project and share yours, feel free to message me on IG or contact me through my website. Your story could change someone’s life, and sharing your truth will also change yours.

"I always thought of myself as someone who loved to party. The thing is, my definition of "partying" was way beyond whatever "normal" drinking is. The years went by and I crossed some sort of invisible line where the choice to slow down or stop drinking was removed. I couldn't stop.
I kept getting in to trouble - drinking daily and absolutely hating myself, feeling more and more shame as time went by. The consequences of my drinking kept getting more problematic, and I'd swear every day that I would stop, until about 5pm, when I would inevitably start drinking for the night. I worked so hard to hide my addiction from people. It was exhausting.
One morning four years ago, I woke up covered in bruises. I had fallen down the stairs, drunk. This wasn't even the worst drinking-related thing that happened to me, but I felt so much shame - I thought I would die from it. I could not imagine continuing to live with that much shame. I hated myself.
I haven't had a drink since that day. I had been using alcohol to cover over my feelings of deep depression and anxiety. It was a rocky journey in the first year of sobriety, because I had begin to face the roots of my addiction. I did a lot of deep inner investigation and healing. I used to think it was impossible to go for a single day without drinking. I thought I'd be miserable. Instead, I am the happiest I have ever been. I can't imagine going back to a life of lying, shame, blackouts, disasters. 🙌
I will keep working for this recovery, because it has allowed me to be awake in the world, to help other people, and to feel happier than I ever knew was possible for me. #iloveyoukeepgoing" ✨🙏 #SoberShowcase
