Reclaiming My Life from the Borderline
You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing, and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand, for all that is life.

Happy Nat’l Lipstick Day! 

I rarely wear lipstick.. But it felt right to wear it today! 

Who wears lipstick? Is it an essential? What are your favs?

I fear putting this out there. I fear as soon as I do it will become a lie.

I am feeling good. Mentally good. Emotionally good. Strong and capable. I’ve realized that I have the ability to control my thoughts, to respond instead of react, to calm myself down quickly and gently.

I am proud of this.. And scared to death it’s not real, or only real for a time.

I fear the other me, but I love her, too. I think that’s the difference, the pivotal point. Showing myself love, compassion, understanding, grace no matter where I am in recovery is the key to recovery.

Sending you all lots of love!

Hiked to the falls again today.. So beautiful!

My destination.. So beautiful!

I went hiking today.. Here’s my before and after(I wore socks and shoes the entire time)! 4 miles to a 200 ft waterfall was well worth the effort (and dirt).
