On 29th September I celebrated 2 booze-free but I kept it fairly quiet on the day ๐ŸŽ‰ I wanted to come here and share something with you all but when it came to it, for a plethora of reasons, it just wasn't there. I had a beautiful day but inside I felt sad and needed to move through that first. Sharing these posts open me up to a lot of messages and sometimes I don't feel able to respond to them.

The thing I've struggled most with in these last 6 months is needing help and realising that I am gonna fuck things up and repeatedly get things wrong for the rest of my life. I'm not immune to failure. I'm not immune to hurt. I'm not even immune to falling off the wagon - it takes one small decision to change everything and every day I have to wake up and choose not to drink. It's irresponsible and foolish to think that I know anything for certain - none of us do.

What I feel in my heart is that this is the best choice I've ever made for myself and I owe my life to this decision. I could not be here now, doing what I do, making plans for the future without it. I didn't think I had a future when I was still boozing.

I'm so grateful to know the true, intoxicating power of human connection that is based on truth, that comes from a place of pure love. To every single person who has walked this journey with me, whether it be for a short or long time, thank you. I'm so grateful to be here now, in this form, learning and growing into someone I'm proud to be, warts and all. I'm grateful to be your friend.

Here's me at @eatgenesis on the day, enjoying a beautiful bunch of flowers from @vivahate666 after eating the most peng vegan food ever ๐Ÿ˜

*~* so basic, so beaut *~*

Got back from Dimensions & Outlook in Croatia a week ago and I've struggled to put into words how amazingly life-affirming it was. Met so many unbelievable humans, reconnected with loads of special souls and danced like a maniac in some of the most majestic spaces. Not like me to fail with words but this video of me crying with happiness on our staff boat party probably sums up my feelings about it all. I think a part of me will always be crying with happiness on that boat.

Shouts to @eots_events for the opportunity and collecting such a beautiful family to work with, I miss you all a lot ๐Ÿ’– ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ท

Flying to Croatia today to work my final festivals of the season โœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ’ƒ can't wait to be back in the amphitheater ๐Ÿค—

I'm really bad at instagram and too busy to post stuff regularly atm but I'm losing followers so I'm posting this selfie in the hopes I'll get some new followers and 'build my brand' without having to do anything for another month. Follow @bedtalksldn for more of me struggling to find the time for that #relatablecontent โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Missing beefs โค๏ธ since I've been back, I've not looked at London in the same way. Also in Ibiza they can deal with 32c heat and have air conditioning installed everywhere and water to dive into at any given point sooooo ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฆ

This church under a clear blue sky on my last day in Ibiza gave me major feels. The bell was ringing as the sun approached the golden hour and people were coming and going to speak with God. I looked up and said my thanks for this moment; whoever you are, whatever force is amongst us, I appreciate you. Beauty is in the ordinary, I see that clearly now.

Today I'm not sure why if I can live anywhere in the world, I'd choose busy, landlocked, moody London over the thousands of paradises on Earth that I've yet to even see. This is a little slice of paradise from Ibiza last week...
