In recognition of alcohol awareness month, I’m replaying episode #10 of Time Out with Tinseltown Mom where I speak with Emily Lynn Paulson a beloved wife, mother to five, speaker, and certified professional recovery coach who’s been sober for over 4 years.
On this episode, we discuss Emily’s road to recovery from alcoholism plus talk about alcohol abuse and motherhood. We also chat about her book, Highlight Real: Finding Honesty and Recovery Behind the Filtered Life, a true story of what happens when a so-called perfect mother and businesswoman is forced to find reckoning with her past and build a future based on the authenticity she has always sought. The book delves into trauma, mental illness, attempted suicide, infidelity and much more and is a memoir of healing as well as a fully modern look at what happens when the filters fall off and real life emerges into the light.
