Sober Chick

Here are the unleashed pages of a sober chick in recovery. My journey (date of sobriety) began on June 13th, 2005. For 29 years of my life I was spiritually sick. Emotinally defeated by drunken black-outs, bulimic binging and purging episodes and self-mutilation, I finally surrendered.

Hidden Miracles: Lady in the Water


This movie is so beautiful. M. Night Shyamalan has such a unique angle at telling a story. The movie is full of life, encouraging the concept that every single human has a purpose -- many do not know their purpose however. It is funny where you discover heros that will save lives. They do not live in the media, or live a glamorous life -- some even have lived through immense pain that affect them silently today. Each person so beautiful, each so precious. I see such in the Fellowship . . .

todAAy i am grAAteful:
- being a child of God
- spending time Friday night w my sober sister Mel
- seeing Mel's sponsor take a cake
- attending a new double winners meeting (new to me)
- the soooo many laughs I had at dinner with my mom, brother, his fiance, Mitch and myself
- spending time with Mitch's dad and Mitch on Sunday
- the growth Mitch and I are going through
- to be madly in love with someone -- all of someone
- that Monday is over
- Y O U :)

I know that I join that age old club of humans who ask, "What is my purpose in life?"
I used to think it was just to stay as drunk as possible. That was my goal, at least.

Wow, without reading your post I never would have thought that of seeing that movie. It just seems so scary from the trailers. I am not a scary movie girl. But now I am intrigued. I will have to watch it when it comes to on demand.

I love your description. It sounds almost magical.

Oh yes ~ I am very grateful for Y O U ;)

I am happy that you are madly in love, and with all of him.
