Sober Courage Year in Review – 2016


It has been yet another very exciting year for the Sober Courage blog! I had a great privilege to do several interviews with some amazing recovery worriers! I also was able to start my very own podcast on the SRN Network which I am really excited to continue next year. 

During the second half of 2016 my personal life took a gigantic turn as I filed for a divorce, and I had to take some time for myself to get my life back in order sort of speak. But I am pleased to announce that things have fallen into a nice new normal and everyone is doing quite well! I will definitely write more about it all next year as I am going thru this process, and I am creating my new future. 

I hope you all have awesome sober New Year celebrations, and I am sending big hugs and lots of good vibes for your new year 2017! Thank you for all your love and support!!

Here are some of the project that I was a part of in 2016. Check them out, leave comments and share with others! – Magz
