January 30th, 2020 was the day my heart burst open with a love I never knew possible, and the deepest sorrow I’ve ever known. With courageous vulnerability, I write these words on the anniversary of Rowan’s passing. This is what I have learnt.
You don’t have to recover over the holidays alone. We invite all women in or seeking recovery to join our extended online holiday gatherings. Let’s gather in the spirit of recovery and ring in the new year. Whether you simply wish to celebrate with fellow travellers, or need some extra connection, support, and love this holiday season – you are always welcome here.
All I want for the holidays is donations to the SHE RECOVERS Foundation. Here’s why: They’re lifesavers! I could leave it at that, but I hope you read on to hear how they truly changed the trajectory of my life. If you’re glad that I am alive today, you have SHE RECOVERS to thank for it.
As a Director of a Fortune 500 Company, I felt like I would rather die than get help for my drinking. I really feared that my career would be over if I sought the help I needed. Instead, as a result of connecting with and receiving support from the SHE RECOVERS® community, everything in my life has improved significantly. Now, it’s my turn to give back to this lifeline organization.
Recovery IS empowering. You can own your story. You can have a life you never dreamed possible. SHE RECOVERS® and my recovery path have both given my life new meaning. I no longer feel isolated, alone, and afraid. I have rich and restorative friendships. I have love and self-acceptance. I have a purpose. I feel real joy, connection, and gratitude.
SHE RECOVERS® Foundation has the women, the power and the presence to be a mighty force in our world. And until ALL women in or seeking recovery from these challenges are celebrated, supported and deemed essential to healthy communities, we will not rest. This is our movement. This is our cause.
