    Celebrating A Decade and Staying Motivated (Season 1 Finale)

    For some getting old can bring a lot of fears. “What have or haven’t I accomplished during these past few years?!?!” I just turned 30 years old this past Friday. I have a lot left to live for, but I can’t ever forget there was a point in time in my life where I was going to put an end to all this. On this season finale I share what I’ve won, what I’ve gained and what you can ask yourself as you grow up!

    "I Just Want to be Normal"

    Let's continue celebrating #RecoveryMonth! Part of celebrating what you've achieved involves taking a look at where you came from. On the 4th episode I spoke about a list of negative things I wrote on September 9th, 2009. 14 pages that always remind me how far I’ve come. On this episode we take another look at it and share what it’s like to go through those rough emotional moments, including "wanting to be normal".
