Update: I’m sorry to announce that Friday was my last day at The Refuge..... heartbroken because I have run out of FMLA due to my back surgery 8 months ago. Just really bad timing and this is no fault of mine or The Refuge....Needed to be a 100% by last Friday and I still can’t even walk. Please keep us in your prayers and know I am a firm believer God is in charge and who knows where this will take me! Fear has definitely been trying to creep into my soul and I am trying to stay in the moment.... pain tends to keep you very present but when I do let fear in, I am trying to sit and learn from all the pain I’m feeling right now... please keep my dad in your prayers too as he is still in the hospital. Seems surreal even writing this post right now. Always a Refugee! ❤️🙏🏼#loveandonlylove #therefuge_florida #recovery #traumasurvivor #refugee #godhasaplan

Happy birthday to this one. We mark her birthday today because she was surrendered to the Humane Society on St. Patrick’s Day in 2010 at the age of 3 months. The staff named her Paddy Magee in honor of the day and it stuck. We are truly blessed on this day🍀🐶❤️ #paddymagee #happystpatricksday #rescuedogsofinstagram #dauschund

There are times when we simply do not know what to do, or where to go, next.
Sometimes these periods are brief, sometimes lingering.
We can get through these times. We can rely on our program and the disciplines of recovery. We can cope by using our faith, other people, and our resources.
Accept uncertainty. We do not always have to know what to do or where to go next. We do not always have clear direction. Refusing to accept the inaction and limbo makes things worse.
It is okay to temporarily be without direction. Say “I don’t know,” and be comfortable with that. We do not have to try to force wisdom, knowledge, or clarity when there is none.
While waiting for direction, we do not have to put our life on hold. Let go of anxiety and enjoy life. Relax. Do something fun. Enjoy the love and beauty in your life. Accomplish small tasks. They may have nothing to do with solving the problem, or finding direction, but this is what we can do in the interim.
Clarity will come. The next step will present itself. Indecision, inactivity, and lack of direction will not last forever.
Today, I will accept my circumstances even if I lack direction and insight. I will remember to do things that make myself and others feel good during those times. I will trust that clarity will come of its own accord! ❤️ #thepoweroflettinggo #recovery #sober #traumasurvivor

How are you sabotaging yourself? "If you play it safe in life you've decided that don't want to grow any more."
-- Shirley Hufstedler❤️ I had a few folks respond to my latest injury.... “you need to be safer...
Or watch where you are going! I’ve always been an adventurer since being in recovery and before and even though this fall wasn’t “my fault” I’m
not a Lucy .... I experienced
life and will continue to do so!
Chronic Pain ahhhhh yes the worst fear
for someone in recovery ..... the first heartbreak I thought of when I realized how injured I was nooooooo please please don’t mess with my sobriety.... second thought was not my new back💔.... after a few 🤬 ...I knew God was not done with my pain journey and it has def been one! Many have asked since my Doc appt. how it is going and what did I injure.. 2 fractured hips and ramus bone 😬
Usually I hide out when in pain and I’m not doing it that way anymore.... one huge lesson I’ve learned already is we need our tribe!!! We aren’t putting them out by discussing your feelings and it’s a way to give others a chance of giving too! Talking, visiting etc.... has been so healing for me!
Don’t be scared of the pain (emotional
Or physical) embrace it and learn from it! #loveandonlylove #chronicpain #traumasurvivor #lovewarrior #brokenpelvis #recovery #soberlife

If you have to be bed ridden for a while..... our 5 pack of puppies and Ted and Steven with their two beauties Salma and Maddox! Ted and Steven doing Pranic healing on me, healthy food, crying and laughing... it takes a village when we are in pain physically and mentally! I thank God for my tribe! #loveandonlylove #traumasurvivor #recovery #lovewarrior ❤️

I cannot catch a break lately.... I can catch pun intended!
Had business in Nashville and thought I would fly through Memphis to see my dad who is still in hospital. Eating dinner on way in and I fell off the high stool... and fractured my hips and broke my ramus bone. Tracy has flown in to Memphis to try and get me home in Palm Springs and get with Ortho team. My dad is doing better since they took his respirator out again and replaced w tracheotomy..... if you could once again pray for our family... only I could end up in the same hospital I’m supposed to be visiting my dad in..... Ugh 2 floors down. As Billy Beagan says.... you can’t make [email protected]$t up! #loveandonlylove ❤️

Love and live each day like it’s your last! One of The Refuge’s beautiful equine heroes left this earth after helping heal so many including me! I’m riding Drifter in this pic! My roommate Kirsten behind me was a warrior and fought this dis-ease with all her might but lost her battle a year ago. Life is precious and hard.... if you need help... reach out... I Did! #loveandonlylove #recovery #therefuge_fl #equinetherapy #ripdrifter #ripkirsten #traumasurvivor #sobriety #bepresent ❤️🙏🏼

The Finding Freedom Symposium was this past week and I must say that I was so triggered with ptsd prior to the event that I decided to be as vulnerable as I possibly could and be authentic and say I’m not okay at this conference and it triggers a ton of past trauma. The outpouring of love I received just by not putting on my “I’m okay” mask and just being real and raw was amazing. Let us as a community be gentle with one another and love without judgment..... being kind doesn’t cost a thing! We are in the industry of helping people but we must continue our work as it is never done.... we hear things on a daily basis that is tough and can also trigger us.... we are only human. Please know that if you see me out and need an ear or a shoulder.... I am here! Love and only love ❤️#recoveryworks #traumasurvivor #ptsd #lgbtqia #findingfreedom #sober
