Today is the day! 22 Years of sobriety. I walked into my first 12 step meeting with a baseball cap on, a huge hangover from the night before and a desire to change my life. One decision to change. And it changed my ENTIRE life.
I was just thinking how grateful I am to #1 – still be alive. #2 that I have my sobriety. I am so blessed to have the life I fought for and dreamed of.
So – what’s happened in those 22 years? SO VERY MUCH… I worked hard to get out of a 13 year career in adult entertainment. I took on 3 jobs after I decided I had to get out and heal from the years of addiction and abuse.
I became a Christian in 2003.
I started support groups in 2006 for women who struggle with sex addiction and launched a non profit in 2007 helping women who are in the sex industry.
I met and married my amazing husband Tim Savage.
I survived Breast Cancer.
We launched and pastored a church in South Beach Miami.
I’m still working on that book and writing music.
I’ve started a few companies. I’ve gotten to travel all over. I’ve got people I LOVE and who love me back.
I’m about to embark on a new exciting journey you will all hear about soon.
Listen. Don’t give up on your dreams. Just go for it.
NEVER GIVE UP. Keep on going. You CAN do it!! No matter what has happened in your life. No matter how old you think you are. No matter how many obstacles seem to be in your way.
KEEP AT IT. The world needs something that YOU have inside of you. That only YOU can contribute. Sort through what that is and GO FOR IT.
