I believe that women are suffering because we don’t feel good enough. We hide our strength because we’ve been taught to play small.
I believe in helping women live bigger, bolder lives in recovery because getting sober is just the beginning. It opens us up to recognize our purpose and to start sharing with the world.
I believe in holding the space for women to discover what’s possible because we need the support to look beyond our own perceived limitations.
I believe in connection and community because it’s the life force of sobriety. The more we share each other’s experiences, the more we grow. Our stories are the thread that unites and strengthens us.
I believe that anyone can get sober. All they need is the will to make it happen and the courage to ask for help.
Being a professional woman today is difficult and often competitive. It doesn’t have to be that way. Showing vulnerability is slowly becoming more acceptable, but we still have a long way to go.
I believe women try to be everything to everyone because we’re constantly looking for external acceptance. We seek relief outside of ourselves to escape the intensity and pressure coming from within.
I believe that addiction needs to continue to be brought out into the light because the stigma of recovery is keeping people from getting help.
I believe that self-love is the question AND the answer because without it, we’ll never show up fully as the magnificent and powerful women we are. We’re not wired for it though, so it takes time and a willingness to get there.
I believe in miracles because I experience them every day. Sobriety has allowed me to overcome my fears and find the courage to start living my life.
