19 Days Clean...

19 Days Clean...

I'm Jake, have 19 days clean, and I call it my first real attempt at recovery, because before, it was either to satisfy my family, a girlfriend, a job, or whatever the cause may be; but the reason wasn’t me. This time getting clean is for me, and at the same time I’ll be helping my wife and newborn daughter. I want my daughter to grow up with a positive male role model in her life, while showing her that you can overcome anything that is put in your path. She’ll see the strength within me and our family when...

Conquering Anxiety With Love <3

Tonight has been filled with so many soft and sweet--yet difficult to ignore--lustful notions. I am now convinced that a #lovewins mentality can conquer anything. But that's such a hard pill to swallow. It's an overzealous supplement to most. And continually overwhelming to myself.I've never been a firm believer in faith. But everything around me begins to shine.  Sitting back, I begin to relax after lulling my gorgeous wife to sleep with a beautiful passage by our hometown hero, “Mitch Albom.”And although everyone is asleep. You can tell that "family lives here." You may think I'm crazy by telling you only...

Comfort Recovery & Ending the Stigma!

WHAT MAKES YOU #SMILE?  PLEASE share this with someone/somewhere that makes you smile and tell them WHY! A great quote for me this time of year is... "empower to be empowered" When I think of that quote another really impactful motto comes to mind. A quote that really uplifts me to live a faithful and prosperous life is to remember why I wake up. When I wake up I need to start my day with this question: "who can I help smile today?" This photo below really encompasses a great vision of joy, togetherness, empowerment, and smiles while ending...

What's A Lifestyle Designer?

“I know I have greatness within me… I want to be great, I just don’t know how to be great.” Those are the words I said to my mom, as I asked her for help. Help to be set free from my depression and addiction. I was 19, and I had never known true happiness. It was at that time I decided to go to treatment.That was the first step to answering the call of something larger than me. I’ve always had a desire to do something big in the world, create an impact in some shape or form. I...

Addicted to Music Pt. 6: Ricky Byrd of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts

It's awesome to be able to do what I do with writing, and my lifestyle of full fledged recovery and sober success. But there are certain times, like this one, where you're beyond humbled... Take this recent situation where a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member--Ricky Byrd, the guitarist from Joan Jett & the Blackhearts--sends you a picture of him in your shirt that says "CLEAN"/Addicted to the Clean Life, on it. Also not knowing who he is at that specific time, besides the name he used on Instagram; "Ricky Byrd's Clean Getaway." Which so happens to be the...
