I am starting a new series titled, Inspiring Women in Recovery, where I interview rockstar women who are in recovery from all sorts of things. Humbling oneself and surrendering to a program of recovery takes courage and a certain Je ne sais quois.
Recently a friend sent me this article by Brené Brown about celebrating 23 years of sobriety. I’ve heard her talk before but I had no idea she was also living sober.
“For the first time in my life, I realized that my sobriety isn’t a limitation. Sobriety isn’t even a “have to” – it’s a superpower.” – Brené Brown
Yep, it sure is a superpower. Without the old familiar crutch of alcohol or drugs, I’m forced to face every situation with clarity and growth. It’s a blessing.
As a woman in recovery for over 9 years, I can easily say I’ve met some amazingly beautiful women on this journey who’ve also discovered their superpowers. It’s like I a get a front-row seat to watch God’s handiwork in transforming ladies every day. Now that I have this platform, I’d love to feature some of these women in hopes of sharing stories of inspiration.
