~ FREEDOM ~
:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:
Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:. .:~*~:
Ever since I could remember, even as far
back as a little child, 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 my identities on my
body (150 pounds worth) that was I 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.
