I am so happy that you are here, and I thank you for taking time to check out the DB blog! My name is Brittany. I am a wife, and the mother of three boys, who just also happens to live a sober life.
Before Discovering Beautiful evolved into what would become this blog,
it was simply how I felt about my newly sober life.
In 2006 I made the choice to accept help, to get sober, and I began to invest in my mental-health and overall wellness.
Over the last 9 years, God has gifted me some amazing opportunities; most notably:
a second chance at life, a fresh perspective, and an understanding of the significance behind my once crippling, past experiences.
I am a person who has struggled with (and almost lost to) an addiction to not feeling and a debilitating lifestyle, I am also the daughter of a person who has struggled with mental health issues and addiction for over twenty years, I am the older sister of someone who is fighting a battle with alcohol, I am a survivor of trauma, and a proud mental health and addiction recovery advocate.
These components are all a part of who I am.
The kinds of straight forward & honest topics you will most definitely come across here on the blog will range from things like: motherhood and sober parenting, addiction, recovery, sobriety, codependency, and enabling.
Sprinkled in between these lovelies will be raw descriptions of my own personal battles; the small victories and the times that I fall on my face.
I also have a guest post section for any person out there who needs a platform & has something that they want to share. If that person is you, submit your post!
Despite the crazy hard things that I have walked through on so far on my personal journey,
none of them even come close to comparing to all of the beautiful things that I have seen, heard, recognized and felt, living free from as many toxic things as possible, and I want to share them with you!
So please take a look around, connect with me on the other platforms (if you so choose) and get comfy.
Discovering Beautiful is a continual thing, much life self-revelation. It’s never ending.
I can’t even tell you how excited to be able to encourage other people as I navigate this sober life.
So much gratitude, so many thanks.
