January 2003, I dropped to my knees and prayed for God to give me peace. I hadn’t spoken to God in over 20 years. Thank goodness he was still listening.

I was in an abusive relationship with a man I’ll refer to as Prince Harming, while numbing myself out and dumbing myself down, abusing alcohol. Not sure why I was waking up each day.

I began my journey in AA and the twelve steps.

It was there I learned about the Pink Cloud. I was overjoyed with breaking free from alcohol and just a couple short months of being sober; Prince Harming realized his hold no longer held and fled. I believed I would die by his hand.

Life was amazing, and full of possibilities. I was on what the AA community called “the pink cloud.” I remember thinking “how lovely”, but as soon as that thought popped into my head, it was extinguished by the explanation that, “I will come crashing down to reality.”

It didn’t take me long to have a clear and concise understanding, if I wanted to remain sober, AA was not the way for me. I chose to ride “my pink cloud” right out of the rooms.

Life isn’t always pink. In fact, it can get very dark. But having my Pink Cloud brings me through the storms with more confidence and ease.

The work that it takes to develop a Pink Cloud is deep and expands through the whole being – mind, body, and spirit.

The Pink Cloud is a gathering of strengths, passions, dreams, ideals, needs, and soul-inspired desires born from our individuality and guided by the divine. Keeping your eyes on the prize – so to speak.

The Pink Cloud holds the TRUTH of me.  It fuels courage and confidence to weather any storm.
