Ep015: Shar Jones – End of the Year “Thank-You!” Mix
Happy New Year! We made it to 2018 and I am so excited about this year.
A lot of growing pains and lessons that needed to be learned. And of course that’s going to continue but I feel like I have made some genuine progress. And I’m excited about that. This podcast by far has been the scariest and most empowering thing that I’ve ever done.
Sometimes stop and pinch myself, to sit with it and recognize that I’m doing this. I am sharing my voice and talking about things that are scary and uncomfortable and that’s okay and that’s good. Learning to share my voice has been the most important thing that I could have ever done for myself. And I have so many people to thank that have helped me.
A couple of the things that I’m going to just keep top of mind for myself, is to continue to stand up for myself and for my family and to shine a light on difficult topics. And just continuing to remind myself not to worry what everybody else thinks about me and to stay true to my own path and my own process and how I go about getting there.
It’s very personal for everyone. And to honor myself through all my growth and change and redefining what it means to feel beautiful. I’m almost 50. You know sometimes I wake up and I look in the mirror and I don’t recognize myself. And as women, I think we have been defined for so long on our physical beauty. I’m challenging myself right now to take a closer look and to redefine what that means for myself.
So those are some of the things that I’m going to be working on this year. Also just allowing more freedom and blessings into my life.
And I recently started beyond Hope Foundation and I cannot wait to see what happens with that. I’m going to give that some more attention this year. And before we jump into today’s show I just want to thank anybody who’s out there listening to my voice right now. We’re here to continue to support and love each other through this journey, so thanks for being here.
So for my last episode of the year I’m excited to just kind of pull together some of my favorite pieces from all of my interviews and kind of putting them up into one episode and I hope you enjoy.
And please, one of my hopes with this podcast is to share your voices so if you have stories of hope or questions that you would like answered or if you just want a friend you can always reach out to me. You can text me at (206) -229-0244. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit my Facebook group, The Beyond Hope Radio Facebook group and I’m just sending you so much love.
Happy New Year. And I look forward to talking with you again soon.
Bye for now, Shar

Beyond Hope with Shar Jones
I’m back with a special episode. I, like many, have struggled a lot this past year. But I’ve found some wonderful help, I am so grateful.
Manny Mendez from FOREEL Recovery joins me today to talk about how they are connecting art and recovery.
Today I’m talking to my friend, Aundre Washington. He shares his personal experience of darkness and what it means to not give up.
A wonderful conversation I had with the amazing Stacy Fisher, who is an incredible self-care “guru.” A certified dietician, hilarious, compassionate, fun, but such a beautiful light. We talk about some of the bigger things in life, things that bring joy… the “deep” stuff.
I wanted to let you know that if you are struggling with anything, whatever it is that you’re going through, if you’re struggling right now, just know that you’re not alone. And I too have been struggling over the last six months.
It’s not a ride I want to be on, but I find myself back and feeling all the emotions that come when you discover your loved one has relapsed.
What’s been happening? During this episode, I chat with you a little bit about what’s been going on in my world. I know my last episode kind of left things in just a state of flux. I had recorded kind of what I was going through at that moment and I try hard to be as transparent as I can with this podcast while also respecting my daughter. I feel really, really blessed because my daughter is so supportive of what I’m doing…
Tonight, I’m recording this episode from an old familiar place. I recently learned that my daughter, who had been doing so well. Left rehab after 15 months. She just walked away from it. All the hard work. The relationships that she’d built. Right now, this second, I am sickened with worry, fear, and feelings of guilt … wondering what went wrong? What did I miss? And why?
Today, I want to talk about traditions and how hard we push ourselves to recreate old memories, perhaps memories from a time when things were easier and how hard that is to do realistically, because we’ve changed.
Hi everyone, it has been a little while since I’ve recorded an episode but I have been thinking about you and I want to thank everyone for the encouragement and support.
Recovery success must truly be desired to be found and each path is unique for every person.
I have been doing a lot of walking on the beach and a lot of reflecting. The last time I was here I was visiting my daughter. She attended treatment out here…
Listen as I reveal a Special Announcement! Yes, I have been absent for a bit as I have been doing some processing lately. I had to take a step back and finally make a big decision…
Laura has helped hundreds of people overcome their past and begin to live the life of their dreams. It is her core belief that we can overcome anything. When we change our patterns and beliefs that keep us stuck; there are truly infinite possibilities that come into our awareness.
Jeff shares his incredible journey from addict to working with drug abusers on the streets, letting them know that there is hope.
A page from my journal… I’m putting it all out there. For other parents of addicts who may be struggling, or anyone else who has thought about giving up.
Take an honest evaluation and assessment of how you are contributing to their behavior…
As parents, we always want to do what’s best for our children. It’s always been that way. But, are we helping or are we enabling?
Reclaim your identity and higher purpose so you can stop the self-imposed suffering and start your truth-telling journey.
