Everyone’s recovery is different
Never think you fail at recovery.
Never think you’re less than someone else because they’re moving faster or moving slower - whatever. Just don’t think you’re less.
Never think you’re doing recovery wrong (stagnation happens, lapses/relapses can happen - baby steps).
NEVER think that just because you’re doing something differently, that it’s wrong. Because it’s NOT.
Remember that YOU ARE unique.
EVERYONE’S recovery WILL be different.
Focus on yourself

my roommate and I met him by accident at a local thrift store in the late fall and we’ve been friends ever since. we all go to lunch at once a week, and he always has the best stories. he’s an incredible person; he’s ninety-four and is extremely open-minded and cheerful and full of life and even still travels freely on his own. “don’t tell anyone, but for my ninety-fifth birthday I’m going to canada!”
this post means so much to me and i have no idea why
usually being so old scares me but now I feel different about it
[Photoset of Sailor Moon winking. Texts read: Made a phone call, Ordered the food you really wanted, Asked a question in class, Cooked yourself a good meal, Got out of bed today, Calmed yourself down from a panic attack, Didn’t overwork yourself, Practiced self-care.]
Sometimes we get so focused on the big things that it’s easy to forget our small accomplishments, so I made the Sailor Moon Award! Celebrate the little accomplishments you make throughout the day, you deserve it!

"If nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that—warm things, kind things, sweet things—help and comfort and laughter—and sometimes gay, kind laughter is the best help of all."
"Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way."
"I think smart is sexy. I like smart people. People that are comfortable with themselves, I think is very sexy.
