One year ago today I embarked on a journey. At the time, I had a vague idea of the destination but didn’t know if I could reach it.
The first step was the most difficult thing I’d faced. It was New Year’s Day and I’d celebrated a lot the night before.
It was so cold that day, not just outdoors, but inside my heart. I felt empty and alone.

On January first, 2017 I celebrated one-yearof being clean and sober.
I know in my heart, I have miles to go.For this is a lifelong journey but life gets better with every step.
And, as I continue my journey, My hope is that others join me along the way.
