I hear stories of Recovery daily, but this one guy… His story stuck with me. He’d been in Recovery 10-plus years but he hadn’t forgotten. He hadn’t forgotten what it took to get in and stay in Recovery; his eyes filled up when he talked about the perseverance of early Recovery and his voice shook when he talked about those still suffering. 10 years hadn’t entitled him to anything but a quest to reach out more to help as many people as he possibly could: “If people will just hang on”, he said with his voice cracking. “The other side is amazing- 5 years, 10 years, every year makes a world of difference! A great life can happen if you just grab ahold of Recovery and refuse to let go.”
The spring after hearing his story, I was watching a remarkable lightning storm out my back door and verbalized my thought to my husband that Recovery is like catching and holding on to lightning. That guy’s story came back to me as though I’d just heard it- and I knew why. The Power of Recovery design is dedicated to those in early Recovery. Because grabbing ahold of Recovery is like grabbing ahold of lightning- it can seem hard to catch, but once you grab ahold of Recovery, the power of life is in your hand!
