My soul’s home.

My soul’s home.

I think it’s safe to say green tea ice cream is my new favorite thing. Ever.

My face.

My face.

OoMeee OoMy

I don’t understand some things

The universe doesn’t always make sense

My mind can be a beacon of light in the darkest of nights

And sometimes my own worst enemy

I am back where I came from

But that’s not necessarily a bad thing

Maybe I needed to confront my own worst enemy on that path one last time before I could know it’s best to always leave the light on

“Perhaps most of all, though, you deserve to be okay. You deserve to know that a day in which you can just barely get out of bed because you are sad, or sick, or simply not ready to see the outside is not the end of the world. You deserve to know that moments of weakness do not make you fundamentally weak, only fundamentally human, and that sometimes we’re not going to be effusively happy, and that is okay.”

dreamcatchernights asked: Katie, love, how have you been? congratulations on your sobriety! You really are incredible. I hope life's treating you well. xx

Hello beautiful! I am doing wonderfully. Thank you SO very much :) It is hard but it is so rewarding and beautiful. That means more than you know to me. How are things going with you?

“My mission, should I choose to accept it, is to find peace with exactly who and what I am. To take pride in my thoughts, my appearance, my talents, my flaws and to stop this incessant worrying that I can’t be loved as I am.”

Nostalgia

Music always has a way of making my head heavy with thoughts of the past. I wish I could go back to moments in my life that were so simple at the time but so meaningful now.

So fresh & so

clean, clean. Six months sober feels absolutely amazing. Thank you universe.

Transcendence

I am loving the little things in life even more each day. I was drifting far down a path of destruction and, fortunately, the universe knew I had to be stopped and I was. Love, pain, melancholy, and every other feeling in the world are here for a reason. Masking these feelings leads ultimately to our very own demise. If anyone is struggling just know that it CAN be better. You can make the changes. Please realize these things before a judge or probation officer realizes them for you. I was caught up in a whirlwind of speedy oblivion and was going absolutely nowhere very quickly. I am so grateful today to be free from the tight grip of my addiction. I have almost five months of complete sobriety and, honestly, life has NEVER been better. I feel so deeply for every heroin addict today. Manifest love and peace in your mind and, even in the dark depths of addiction, it can happen. You can overcome your tribulations and there IS life away from the drugs. I never thought I could have fun or feel happiness without mind-altering chemicals and today I can truly say I welcome every feeling. Life is far too beautiful and there is far too much to experience to waste it away numb.

Another Option

I am now living in a new, refreshing way. Sobriety isn’t easy, but it is rewarding. I only hope for the best and in being the way I am now only the best can come. Everyone wish me luck :)

“And the arms of the ocean are carrying me
And all this devotion was rushing out of me
And the crashes are heaven for a sinner like me,
but the arms of the ocean delivered me.”
