Dawn Marie Gallagher, “Brooklyn Dawn”
In her own words . . .
I will forever be forever grateful to the people in my life who didn’t give up on me. For those who showed me unconditional love, when I didn’t love myself, I thank you For the mentors and spiritual angels who have guided me and taught me by example, I love you.From “One Day Back Dawn” from Brooklyn, New York who couldn’t get sober again after a glass of champagne despite having nearly 7 years of abstinence prior to that to the women I am now, I am blessed. God said “enough” and on January 14, 2007, I woke to the realization that I had to get sober now or die. My life has never been the same. I am amazed, but more importantly, I am free.To awaken to the fact that alcohol was not the problem that I was the problem? That despite all my years in hospitality management, I was selfish and self-centered? And that my deepest, deepest desire not to drink was not good enough to keep me sober? These revelations based on my truth set me on a path that has transformed my life. I had to change. I was the common denominator. Today my life is filled with love, laughter, but not without pain, growth, and learning from my mistakes. I get to help others in recovery and have a front-row seat to the miracle of watching people get sober and stay. I have a wonderful relationship with my family and friends, and especially a God of my understanding. I love living this way. I am finally becoming the woman that God created me to be.
