Each week I am going to be posting an inspirational story from someone who has battled, and overcome adversity. You all were so moved by my story, so imagine what a VILLAGE of us sharing our truths can do!
Types of addictions will include, but are not limited to:
Drugs, alcohol, food, sex, gambling, hoarding, self-harm, abuse, violence, etc.
If you would like to be a part of this amazing new endeavor and have your story considered, see submission guidelines below:
1) Tell me your story of overcoming adversity. I want to know: a) What was life like in during that time, what were the feelings and emotions associated with your situation. b) What event made you decide to change the situation for the better/ Why did you decide to change? c) How did you do it? Tell me about that experience. And d) what is your life like now? What amazing things have happened since?
2) Please keep it to 2,000 words or less. I will be editing for grammar and punctuation, but please try your best to make the submission as neat as possible because I am not great at either of those myself.
3) Keep in mind the story will be online and in book form for anyone and everyone to read. If you do not feel comfortable putting your face and story out there, then please do not submit a story.
4) Attach a picture from when you were in active addiction (during the time of struggle), and a present day photo. (No children.)
5) Please use fake names if you are referring to others.
6) Somewhere in the email, please state: ” I _______, give Tiffany permission to use my story and photos on her blog series “Recovering Beautifully”, as well as her book.”
7) I have no idea when and if your story will be chosen to be published, so please refrain from emailing me asking once you’ve submitted. I will email you if it is chosen, and then give you a heads up when it will be live on the site.
*Submit your stories via email to firstname.lastname@example.org*
I’M SO FREAKING EXCITED!
