Being approached to speak about my journey has become a common occurence, and I take the call very seriously. I have been asked to speak to audiences of thousands, and author some chapter's for some inspirational books. Having done well over 300 radio interviews, I have no shame in sharing my story.
Recently, I was approached to speak with a great guy named Ty. He hosts a recovery style podcast and has a reach across North America. I was absolutely thrilled to have been asked to share my journey of strength from pain with him and his weekly audiences. Little did I know, this would be an amazing little adventure we would go on.
It wasn't in a fancy recoding studio, it wasn't at a radio station. It was just 2 guys talking in a workshop. Laid back from the start, Ty made it very comfortable to just be "me". We chatted about how life was when I was younger, and how life sort of spiralled out of control very quickly. I'm not sure about this, and I may be going out on a limb here. But, he was more interested in how I got out of hell. How the solutions and promises worked in my life. Its this sort of journalism we need in society. We see so much hate, and violence every night on the news.
It was amazing to feel the sense of compassion and geuine care this guy had for how I was recovering I owe Ty a huge debt of gratitude for not only hearing, and listening to my story, but believeing me and trusting that together we can show others, there is a way out of the darkness, a way out of hell. I don't want to spoil the whole thing so I will leave you with this. No matter what, at the end of the day, remind yourself you are loved by many, and cherished by few. Keep those few tight. Keep speaking if you can.
I believe you.
Have a listen here.
