One Day At A Time #essentialsofrecovery


“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”

—Judy Garland

As far back as I can remember I always wanted to be like —or act like—someone else. I never allowed myself the freedom to be me. I was my parents’ child, my husband’s wife, and my children’s mother. It wasn’t until I came into program wearing all of my identities on my body—150 pounds’ worth—that I was able to see how unhappy I really was.

I began my journey to recovery by slowly discovering the real me underneath all that extra weight. Working the Twelve Steps of recovery helped me to peel away the layers of fear that kept me stuck.

One Day at a Time …

I am free to be me ~ And I am enough.
