And so is the past….I am coming up on, god willing, 3 years sober Aug 27th, 2023. Before that I was battling drug addiction and alcoholism and was estranged from my children and my loved ones. I begrudgingly went to rehab and then a recovery house and now I live the program of recovery to the best of my ability daily. My kids are in my life and advocate for me which is an amazing thing. I’m taught the past is a good teacher but it’s not who I am. I am not defined by my past. Now not everyone feels that way towards me today but it’s ok. Bc I know I’m doing the best I can everyday to just be a little better. When I started this journey I was a cold rigid block of ice. Now slowly day by day I have been given a chisel and keep getting molded into what I was intended to be before the undiagnosed mental issues, the addictions and alcoholism. Since I’ve been sober my mom has passed (two days before this past Xmas), I am currently in the middle of a divorce and child custody. But I know these things I most go through bc I crawled out of hell to get where I am. Basically just your branding and catch phrases drew me to your clothing line. I tend to wear clothing that means something and has a message. And there is no doubt that my demons are behind me and so is the crazy past that I not only put myself through but others. Now I play the guitar, write poems and am an amateur (at best) tattoo artist. Most of the tattoos I have I have put on me. It’s through the scars and pain that create awareness for me of where I’ve been and where I’m headed. Thank you for allowing me to share this with you.
