Life is so wonderful…in spite of myself!

Filed under Uncategorized

Well, now how can that be?  I’m one of those that loves to get in my own way. I do my darndest best to stay out of my own way…but sometimes I think the only way I will really learn the lessons of my life is to test, try and test again…not necessarily the best nor easiest way to learn a lesson…wouldn’t you agree? My personal challenge has always been that of really wanting to know the truth for myself. Alas, I am finally on that path and taken hold of my personal journey in life simply by learning to get the heck out of my own way!

 I am currently enrolled in a “Spiritual Life Coaching” Course and I am on such an exciting journey of spiritual understanding, awareness, acceptance and awakening…it is all part of the process of life. I am loving every moment of it. I have had all of my old belief systems challenged…by myself of course…and the discovery of who and what I really am and desire to be has been such an incredible experience. When I finish this course…I will be certified with ECKO Coaching Institue; I will be in a position to offer any of you the benefit of my hard earned awareness and new understandings to create the changes for your own life and create the life you’ve always dreamed of.

Celebrating My Sobriety Today!

icon not text smaller article intro iconAs I come to close of July 11, 2009, I have had a blessed day and I’m full of gratitude today! I just made 6 yrs. clean and sober! That doesn’t sound like much, but for a woman like me it is something I once never thought would be possible. My life today is absolutely wonderful.

The gift of sobriety is by far the most precious gift I have accepted in my  life. Before sobriety, I had nothing, I lost everything that mattered…today with sobriety I have everything I could have dreamed and hoped for in my life and more. Living sober is not always easy, life still happens. I’ve learned so much and have so much more to learn. I’m so excited about my life and living today.

Today, I experience change, and personal growth because that is my current path and chosen direction for my life. I have a spiritual life that is so glorious. I have changed many old beliefs, accepted life, and learned that I’m responsible for everything that happens in my life today. I know that I can change my thoughts about situations and events and they surely will change. I know that all change is for the best, even if it doesn’t appear to be at that time. I heard a little quote “It’s all good!” It really is! Continue Reading »

From Executive to Ex-Con to a Life Extraordinary!

One of my articles. Sharing more about me with you.

Having it all, losing it all, going to prison and now having the best in life. Alcoholism is a serious addiction. Many people never recover; they die in the depths of the disease. Some of us are fortunate to find our way clear, to make the choice for sobriety in our life and the new life it offers. Coming from the depths of despair to a fulfilling and rewarding life; I’m there!

Achieving success in my early 20’s, I had it all, or so I thought. At least materially I did not want for anything. I was an executive in an airline for many years. I started on the ground floor and worked my way up the corporate ladder very quickly and very well compensated. I was a workaholic.

After many years I finally burned out and resigned my executive position. I opened my own advertising and promotions firm from there and quickly fell into the daily drinking with my business associates. It took a few years before I crossed the line with social drinking to an out of control full blown alcoholic. I fought a battle with the bottle for more than 12 years from the time I realized I really had a problem with alcohol. I could not stop drinking. Alcohol was in control of every waking and passed out moment of my life. I tried rehabilitation programs only to have short lived periods of sobriety. I spent the better part of many years in a blackout state with very little if any memories other than what was told to me by others. Continue Reading »
