I remember the first time I went to the mall after getting to Thistle Farms to heal and recover. I was celebrating about seven years of sobriety at this point, so I walked into Macy’s and I saw that first Brahmin purse and I fell in love.
I am Worthy
I said to myself, “I wonder if I’ll ever be worthy of something like this.”
One thing you need to know about Thistle Farms is that this program reminds you every day that you’re worthy of so much more than you think.
The Healing Journey
So I thought, “Okay. I’ll keep working, and I’ll keep working on myself, and I’ll start putting money aside just to buy this purse.” And I did!
I graduated from the program over 10 years ago, but that wasn’t the end of my healing journey.
Progress Each Day
Each day, I keep making progress. And each time I make it to a new milestone, I mark the occasion with a new bag because of that feeling I had that first time I saw one and realized that yes, I am worthy. I have found so much joy in knowing that I’m worthy of so many good things in life.
"You are Worthy"
I didn’t think I was for such a long time and I see that in the faces of the women who are just starting off in the program. They’re unsure, but when you love on somebody enough they’ll start to believe it. And getting to see another woman go through that same transformation I went through is priceless.
