How to Be Successful - Focus on Your Own $hit by Alison Capra

It’s taken me a very long time to truly grasp the amount of work it takes to see your vision through. At almost 35 years old, I am starting to understand what it takes to create the life you want. People often ask me HOW TO “START”… I spent the first half of my life serving under the vision of others. I made myself indispensable. How does one do that? I’m so glad you asked:

HOW I STARTED OVER .... AGAIN by Alison Capra

Five years ago I had no idea what I was gonna do with my skill set, where I was going to lay my head, or where I would find my new tribe. I was going through my second divorce. After a year of trying to make it work in Kansas City, I decided a move was in the cards and the best thing for my well being. I left everything I had, my home, my family, my friends, and my stepsons. I had a suitcase full of clothes, no money in my bank account, and on my 30th Birthday I crashed on a friend’s couch with a bottle of cinnamon whiskey in my hand. I made my way to …

WHY I'M NOT A FEMINIST by Alison Capra

Women throughout our history have changed the way we operate in America. WE being women. We have a voice, we have rights, we can drive, we can vote, we have rights to do whatever we want with our lives in this country. These women fought a battle for us that has seemingly been one of the largest things separating us from 2nd and 3rd world countries.

"I'm NEVER Getting Married Again!" by Alison Capra

I got married for the first time at 19, mostly because I wanted to have my entire life mapped out before I started living it. Seems strange right, I am a free-spirit, artistic, gypsy right? Well the truth is, as much as I love to travel, enjoy life, and wear bright orange.... I also really enjoy control. I enjoy feeling like I am IN-CHARGE of the direction the wind blows me. Welp, lesson learned. We are NEVER in charge. God, the Universe, LIFE - whatever you wanna call it, lets us make choices; but knows that other individuals make bad ones too that effect us, and things just HAPPEN that will ALWAYS be outside of our control. Just like a public shitter.

Active Road to Recovery by Alison Capra

The first few years I spent learning to live life sober. Even driving was a task. Being intimate with a women was almost like I was a virgin again because I hadn’t done it sober very often in my life. Emotions were brand new. I didn’t like feeling sad or angry or anxious. Any time I felt that before I drank to feel happy only. I went to AA to ask for answers on how to deal with emotions that weren’t happy because I just didn’t understand that it could be done successfully. I didn’t understand that you could navigate and control negative thoughts and emotions. I also didn’t understand that I wasn’t the only one in the world that had problems. I thought I was special.

Miserable? - Get Off Your Ass by Alison Capra

I remember wishing everyday that my life would fast forward. That each day would pass faster because I was so miserable. I felt so empty without my stepsons. It was a huge transition to part ways after never being without them more than a day in 6 years. I cried myself to sleep almost every night. I struggled the worst around holidays. I just wanted them to be over. I hated everything about them.  I always felt like the universe treated me unfairly. Like I had been given a bad hand. Life was hard and unfair and nothing I had worked for had panned out.
