Everybody has a story to tell, and we want yours!
I Love Recovery Café has been live now for over two months and we are thrilled with the results and the feedback. All platforms of expression have been really successful and have inspired the recovery community right across the world. So far we have contributors from Australia, England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Canada and the USA, bringing their passion for recovery together.
Everything on the site is original work by the artists, including music. We know that there are lots more people out there in recovery, writing, composing and painting who may never have considered submitting their work for publication. Sharing your work and your story with the world gives it life and the expression of our deepest selves breathes life into us. If you, a family member or a friend has something to share with the world, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just recently we put together a panel of health experts. We have Kathleen Russell our Nutrition Coach, Kyczy Hawk our Yoga Expert and Nicola O’Hanlon (me) our Physical Therapist and Energy Healer. Each month they will deal with a different topic. We will soon have a Questions & Answers section for our readers to send in their queries about all aspects of wellbeing, to be answered by our panel and hopefully the topics will be guided by the requests of our readers. This month we did a series of articles on combatting depression in a holistic way.
This week I’m working on setting up a YouTube Chanel for I Love Recovery Café. I’ll be doing some vlogging and would really love people to send us your work on video also – especially poetry, comedic sketches and music – anything that inspires you to get on video and tell us about it. Get creative and have fun!
We talk about all addictions and all types of mental health issues. We want to hear how you deal with relationships, sex, work, family and life in general while maintaining wellness. Show us what you can do and how you do it!
So tell your friends and family about us. Work on something together. Tell us how recovery has changed your life and that of your family. Tell us about the before and after – and where you’re at now. We are about breaking stigma and showing the world that recovery is possible and beautiful and exciting, in all its forms.
I Love Recovery Cafe is part of the InTheRooms.com blogging community. We are still growing and evolving and testing things out and enjoying every second of it. Check us out at www.iloverecovery.com and contact us at email@example.com with any queries you may have.
Looking forward to receiving your inspiring work.
