I have a love/hate relationship with boundaries. At least, I used to. Boundaries are what keep us safe. Having good boundaries can be life changing. We never really know just how life-changing until we start to live with good boundaries. In this episode, I partner with Jackie Pack from the Thanks For Sharing Podcast to discuss boundaries. Jackie and I work together as One Layer Deeper. We'd love to spend a year exploring Boundaries with you. Learn more about the boundary box here: https://onelayerdeeper.com/the-boundary-box/
It's a new year, it's close to my sobriety anniversary, and it's my birthday! All these things happen within a few weeks of each other. This provides a great opportunity to evaluate my "bottom line" behaviors, or my sobriety definition, or my Level 4 behaviors, or whatever it is that you call the things you don't do anymore!
Many times, at the beginning of recovery, we're not sure exactly what we need to do in order to get sober. We're not sure what counts or doesn't count as a slip or a relapse. The reality is that you need to make that determination. As I just celebrated my 7 year sobriety anniversary, I thought it was a good time to evaluate my Level 4 behaviors. In this episode, I walk you through the tool I've created and use with my coaching clients to define my sobriety and how that has evolved over time.
It's a new year and it's my annual time to evaluate my life and decide what the next step looks like for me. My goal for this year is to be OPEN. In this episode I share with you how our lives in recovery can end us in isolation and make us feel closed off. To move to our next level of recovery requires us to be OPEN. Can't wait to share that with you!
