Brave Enough

Hello, I hope your doing well today, I am doing good. I was so inspired by this video a friend of mine appears in. A friend I met through recovery. The women who made the video, Stefanie Wilder-Taylor was kind enough to let me share it here with all of you. You can read a little about her below. I highly recommend visiting her blog, it is full of inspiration, and I can't wait to read her books. Stefanie has also been featured on Oprah and Dr.Phill. By sharing this video we can help stop the shame and stigma that is associated with Alcoholism, while possibly helping someone out there who is struggling right now. This is a video that should go viral IMO. Alcoholism is a disease, like all the other diseases out there. There is treatment, there is hope. Hope that begins when we are brave enough to share, brave like the women in this video.
Thank you for visiting,
Janet :)

My favorite sign is the one in this thumbnail

I am a writer, comedian and all around really special person. I mean, seriously special. A lot of people have told me I’m special and I don’t argue with them because I don’t like confrontation. Once you have been told you’re special and it really sinks in there’s almost nothing you can’t do. Like watch TV or make a Smart Ones in the microwave. This is just the tip of the iceberg, people. I like to write about my babies and my journey through quitting drinking although I normal refrain from using words like “journey.” I’m the author of four books including Sippy Cups Are Not For Chardonnay, Naptime is the New Happy Hour, It’s Not Me, It’s You: Subjective Recollections of a Terminally Optimistic, Chronically Sarcastic, Occasionally Inebriated Woman and coming this June, I’m Kind of a Big Deal. So if you love me or even like me a little, go buy my books. I’ve been featured on Oprah, Dr. Phil (with mustache), The Today Show, 20/20, Larry King Live, and many more. I’m always willing to opine about any issue in the news parenting or otherwise. I’m just a gal who can’t keep her trap shut.
