HEAL Week: A Success

Wow, this week has truly been a surreal experience! To those of you who are unaware, on Friday I did a live-stream on the Project HEAL Facebook Page where I shared my story and what helped me heal. I cannot thank everyone enough for all the love and support I have received over the past few days, and I truly feel so lucky to have the opportunity to advocate for a cause so near & dear to my heart. I'm not going to lie, I was so nervous about doing this (you know since I wouldn't get a chance to redo the video & fix the way I expressed my jumbled, incoherent thoughts), but I am so proud of myself for taking on the challenge wholeheartedly! Not only did I survive the video and potential humiliation, but I received so many kind comments and gestures of goodwill. This just goes to show that people like seeing the unfiltered, spontaneous you, because you are beautiful and your ideas are worth sharing. I was scared that no one would want to watch my video, but now I am close to hitting 2,000 views! Wow....if someone told me six months ago that soon I would be sharing my story with an audience of 2,000 people, I would've automatically assumed that he/she was delirious. But now, here I am, fighting for a cause that genuinely matters. And without recovery—without this awful, miraculous, crazy, beautifully messy process—none of this could have happened.

To those of you who missed it, here is the video of my live-stream!
