Some mornings you just have to roll out of bed before the sun, throw on a hat with your side braid and some lip gloss so that you can go hang out with your #tribe . Hope you’re all able to be there today for hugs!! #mypeople @bitabuckler @livonlylove @therealjen222 @nkisipipiro 💞🙏🏻

This mama’s granny hip is clicking after today’s work out because apparently I’m 85. Rubbed it down with some of this heaven in a tube and I’m feeling muuuuch better. ⠀⠀
In related news, why is my 33 year old body already starting to make weird noises?!?!
Almost done with another pink zebra jasper mala! I am so in love with this stone! Pink zebra jasper has a very calming energy and protects both physically and spiritually from harm
This is the usual scene when I’m making the malas. Surrounded by my little puppies 🐶✌🏻💞📿
Nobody’s Girl Daily Reflections 2/21/18 What lengths. When I think about the lengths I went to in my addiction not just using but in all areas of my life because I was running wild I’m amazed I’m still here. I took so many risks. I didn’t care about the end results I wanted the adrenaline rush. A part of my addiction feeding my need for excitement. There have been times when I’ve thought - Recovery is boring - yup I’ll admit it! If I’m honest I just wanted some excitement lol! Life may not be chaotic today as in my using days but it’s certainly not dull! The challenge I faced was being happy in the now. The quiet days just being present and grateful. Is it enough. Yes. Too much time on my hands not likely it’s more about my choices. I can always find something to do. Of course there’s always step work lol. Or traditions! Or meetings or working with a newcomer! Oh ya! What about getting out of self to be there for another addict. I have found that being of service always feels good and gets me back on track with gratitude for my recovery. I have so much to be grateful for today. There are so many areas of my life that have transformed. I just have to remember that. I no longer dread the morning! That is a gift today I have hope. Today staying in now with my higher powers will for me is never boring. It’s my perspective starting with my gratitude for staying being clean. Today I do not have to use no matter what. Thank you 12 steps! Have a beautiful day keep coming back it works when we work it! Www.sybilpaige.com #recoveryisfun#justfortoday#livingclean#onedayatatime

A.A. cofounder Bill W. stated:
"The scene [just before the manuscript for "Alcoholics Anonymous" was finished] was Henry's office in Newark, where most of the writing had been done. Present were Fitz, Henry, our grand little secretary Ruth, and myself. We were still arguing about the Twelve Steps. All this time I had refused to budge on these steps. I would not change a word of the original draft, in which, you will remember, I had consistently used the word 'God,' . . ." [Source of the quote: "Alcoholics Anonymous Comes of Age" (New York: Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc., 1957, 1985), 166.]
". . . [W]e finally began to talk about the possibility of compromise. Who first suggested the actual compromise words I do not know, . . . In Step Two we decided to describe God as a 'Power greater than ourselves.' In Steps Three and Eleven we inserted the words 'God as we understood Him.'
"Such were the final concessions to those of little or no faith; this was the great contribution of our atheists and agnostics." [Source of the two paragraphs above: "Alcoholics Anonymous Comes of Age," 167.]

Look at these gorgeous #hematite beads that I just got!!
It is extremely grounding and as soon as the Hematite crystal stone touches the skin, you'll feel more centered and calm with its intense but subtle vibrations.
Can’t wait to make this into bracelets and use it for marker beads in some new malas!!
Nobody’s Girl Daily Reflections 2/21/18 Head Space. So every morning I read a 12 step meditation. It’s like a mini reality check and focus tool. It’s very easy for my thinking to go off in a million directions depending on what’s simmer beneath the surface lol. So reading a positive message helps me remember there is always a solution. There are point blank realizations in the readings. This morning on self pity and disengagement, from a way of thinking and living. In our disease which presents itself in many behaviors. It’s fairly easy to plop into self pity. Sit there and feel hopeless. It’s not healthy to stay there. I remind myself that I got clean yo have a life and I do have tools in the rooms. If I get stuck in a dark place heading to a meeting helps immensely! First of all I’m not alone. Self pity blossoms in isolation! Right? Also calling someone in the program or maybe a sponsor. A shift in thinking getting out of self pity infusing positive action. Using every available tool because I did not come here to be miserable! Sometimes it may feel impossible we are stuck that’s when I use my gratitude list! Self pity can not thrive while we are listing all the good in our lives. Even if waking up clean just for today is the only thing we wrote down if we continue the day we are sure to add more and more to the list! Gratitude diffuses self pity! Grateful for today to be clean to have the opportunity to live life as I choose not a prisoner to addiction. I’m grateful for you. Have a beautiful day keep coming bs k use the tools they work!

Welp! It is a new year! I don’t buy into the “New Year, New You!” I don’t want a “new” me. I just want the best version of me possible. I am not perfect and am working on my mindset on being better about my diet and exercise. One positive good habit I have stuck with for three years is bringing essential oils and many other Young Living products into my daily life. Y’all, I use them every single day for stress, sleep, relaxation, immune support, skin care, energy, and so much more. I have completely eliminated OTC drugs, toxic make up, and chemical cleaners. I honestly have never felt better. Those little bottles of oil somehow truly just plain make me happy! BTW, I have a beautiful signature scent I use that I call Bliss. If you want the recipe send me a PM. I did not begin this business to sell you something, I started using these oils, fell in love, and it is so hard to not share something you love. This is my passion and I want all of y’all to experience them for yourself. I would love to answer any questions you may have or host a class for you and a few friends. I promise there is zero pressure from me if you are curious. It would bless my heart like crazy to help you begin the baby steps to a cleaner, healthier, and more natural life💕 I am here for you😘
