What’s on your mind? What we think about and meditate on we eventually become. By changing our outlook we can truly change our lives, because the thoughts we choose to entertain eventually dictate our actions.
Not content with how your life is going? Take a moment and consider what you’re thinking about. Are these thoughts serving you and propelling you towards your full potential or are they limiting the greatness that’s inside of you? Unlock that inner greatness and begin walking into your potential by focusing on and speaking the positive.
With our minds we create and through our mouths we speak into being the promises that have been placed on our lives, promises of healing, strength, peace, joy and success. The more we focus on and speak positivity the more of it we’ll find in ourselves and in the world around us. As we meditate on the positive we allow our minds to rehearse it and it becomes second nature, a part of who we are. As we speak it we give life to that inner greatness, it becomes real. As we hear it spoken we believe it more and more and we change the shape of our destiny.
Be bold in your thoughts and speak into being the dreams that lay on your heart, knowing that nothing is impossible to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
In sobriety, letting go of my past has been a tough one for me- to realize that I am not the things I’ve done nor the same person I was before. However, the more I choose to focus on how far I’ve come and where I’m going, versus where I’ve been, the happier I am and the more gratitude and joy I have in my heart as I continue my journey. It’s not our pasts that define us, it is how we choose to incorporate those lessons into who we’re meant to become. 💗 #progressnotperfection#becoming
Instead of spending my weekends in a dirty, dim pool hall throwing dollars in a juke box for nonstop Led Zeppelin to play ballads justifying my significant love of whiskey and reverie, I now choose to spend my nights under the stars sipping on coffee to the crackle of the campfire, and I get in much less trouble that way 😉🏕
Decided to rock some dead hangs for time today. More comfortable than normal in the @skvi_official & @smbg_calif gear.
Good looking out guys.
Never unsatisfied when I rock the most comfortable underwear I've ever put on.
🔥🙌👑💅 Go try them you wont be Disappointed and they have a monthly subscription so when my traveling ass forgets to order new pairs they show up on my door step and remind me to change myself. 😂
Take a moment to thank all the volunteers who come out weekend after weekend to hold down the fort at the events we produce.
Hands down one the greatest rewards I have as a @spartan employee is the badass volunteers.
Download the FREE @recoverytodaymag app to check out the #Sobriety based magazine along with my monthly section “SCUMMY UNPLUGGED” where I interview inspiring individuals that have got there lives back from drug & alcohol addiction showing those who are still suffering that it can be done. This past interview I did with tattoo legend @freddy_negrete was a special one for me since he is a guy I’ve always looked up to for his tattooing & more importantly his sobriety. I feel this magazine is a great tool for those newly in recovery to get tips & just to hear powerful stories that you can beat addiction no matter how much you think there is no way possible. Sobriety is RAD & can be done!

It’s the transitional times that hold the most magic.. because anything is possible and that sweet nostalgia lingers from what is now the past, and the present is exciting and the future is bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.. anything can happen now and that is the most thrilling thing of all because the universe is on your side 💗
Note: When recovering from trauma, we all have different methods. This has worked for me so far. Essentially, I write in an effort to give others #hope and #inspiration to start their #healingjourney
For over a decade, I ran away. I used different #addictions to cope with #emotionalpain which led to no where land. In October 2016, my undiagnosed narcissistic mom re-entered into my life, I didn’t know then but this would be the catalyst to my healing. We were estranged and our relationship will never be what I felt I deserved from a parent. Alzheimer’s has taken over ungraciously and she continues to decline in health. Seeing her decline, filled me with sadness, grief, and anger. Since then, I’ve been having epiphanies and saw glimpses as to how I can change myself in an effort to have yet another outcome different than that of my mom. I decided to stop hiding in order to process a multitude of traumas that have occurred to me. Since June 2017, I stopped #bingeeating and worked on the root my emotions.
This summer I was struggling with brain fog, lightheadedness, and visual disturbances. I got so scared. I had tests done and found nothing to explain my symptoms. It started affecting my driving, my energy, my thoughts and my body.
So I decided to do something more restrictive that’s usually not recommended for people with a history of eating disorders. I found a naturopathic doctor, who has been helping me detox my body. I went into healing deeper by adding another layer of healing, which is my physical health.
I haven’t been perfect with the diet. It hasn’t been easy as I can not have the following for now:
No soy, no milk products, no corn, no sugar, no rice, no beans, no flour, no alcohol
I’m still not sure why I felt the way I did. However, after a month of changing my diet entirely to the #candidadiet , I feel slightly better.
But when people ask me, so what do you eat then, I always reply “fucking air that’s what I eat.” 😂
