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!
