Demi Lovato vows: "I will never take another day for granted"
The 26-year-old singer has had a turbulent year to say the least, but Demi Lovato has shown how truly grateful she is to be alive.
Many celebrities were posting their highlights from the past year, and their 2019 resolutions, but Lovato chose the moment to declare how happy she is to have survived her ordeal.
It was only five months ago that the Skyscraper singer almost died from an accidental overdose at her home in the Hollywood Hills.
Posting to her Instagram story, Demi wrote:
"So grateful for the lessons I've learned this year. I will never take another day in life for granted, even the bad ones," she said.
"Thankful for my fans, friends, family and everyone who supported me throughout this year. God bless."
The post comes following the singer's two month stint in rehab earlier in the year, where she received treatment for substance abuse addiction.
Lovato issued a since-deleted statement in August regarding her on-going battle with addiction;
"I have always been transparent about my journey with addiction," she claimed.
"What I've learned is that this illness is not something that disappears or fades with time. It is something I must continue to overcome and have not done yet."
2019 looks set to be a positive one for the artist, with her rumoured new relationship with designer Henry Levy, and a Grammy nomination for her collaboration with Christina Aguilera on the track Fall In Line.
Her family have been open about Demi's progress with her sobriety, with her sister, Madison De La Garza, writing a birthday note on Instagram:
"Today could have been one of the worst days of my life, but instead I get to spend it thanking God, the incredible doctors, Demi's team, and everyone across the world who offered their support — without all of these people i wouldn't have my big sister anymore."
We're so glad that her recovery appears to be well on the way, and that she is surrounded by a healthy support system.
