I am thankful for our staff and blogger/ vlogger team. Each day they challenge me to become a better person. I am thankful for our followers and members, hearing your stories is a profound privilege I am able to share with each and every one of you. Without your stories, we wouldn’t be able to be the ray of light we are in the recovery community. I am thankful for my family and my cat, Eve, who nurture me and all of my ambitions. And lastly, I am thankful for my boyfriend who is constantly pushing me to think outside of the box and to accomplish more than I could have ever imagined.
From the Soberocity family to yours, wishing you all a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving!
