Where I Am Today


In August of 2017, I took a giant leap and enrolled in community college. As long as I’m sober, and as long as I’m writing the story of my transformation; why not give it all I’ve got… Right?!

As of today (Spring 2020) I have earned an Associate’s degree in Psychology, and I’m working on my Certificate in Graphic Design. In May of 2020 I’ll be starting at the University where I’ll pursue my Bachelor’s in Psychology.


On March 8, 2020 I hit my 4 year sobriety mark. I also decided it was time to start focusing on my health. I’m working on making some long term changes to my lifestyle, which include healthier eating and more physical activity. You can see my progress HERE.

There’s a lot more to come. My story is still being written!


I take personal inventory on a regular basis, and surrender is a daily struggle. I still try to run the show, and I do see the consequences of my actions because I really don’t know best. But, by the Grace of God, I am still alive, still sane, still sober, and I’m grateful every single morning… for new beginnings.

Life is good, sobriety is awesome, and God is great!

  1. You have a great story! I read your “body” page, I could not find a place to comment. I have struggled with my weight my whole life. Life situations will set me back. Staying at home as set me back. But, I am in such agreement with you. I need my health! This COVID thing clarifies the importance of weight loss, staying in shape and being healthy. So, I’m on that journey with you 🙂 … and I’m 57 🙂

  2. I had realized I hadn’t read this part about you just yet! I had to find out where you are headed in your education. Psychology! I have to admit, when I first started school, I DREADED psychology, but it turned out to be one of my favorite courses and plan to take more in the future. I loved it so very much! My desire as nurse had started out wanting to be a psych nurse because I wanted to really focus on Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. It wasn’t until I was general manager at a small town roadside motel that changed my mind ridiculously fast about being a psych nurse. That would take more than I can offer.

    Thank you for the Liebster Award nomination! That’s awesome! I’ll get on that soon!

    • Oh you’re welcome! Kind of funny that a roadside motel changed your direction but I think I get it. I’m not sure where the degree will take me but I am fascinated with the mind so it’s all good whichever way it goes. Psych nurse is not on the agenda tho. Maybe counselor. 😄 anyway thank you and I look forward to reading yours!
