Warning: you'll need some tissues. This episode is proof that transformation is possible for everyone. I was left speechless so many times in today's episode with my guest Cortney Lovell. From the outside looking in, she was the picture perfect American girl playing 3 varsity level sports, honors student and you would have never guessed what she has gone through to be the person she is today. In honor of recovery month, I wanted to understand addiction and I couldn't have understood it better than through the honest account of someone who has gone through it.
In today's episode, Cortney opens up about what it was like to live with addiction at a very young age, how her addiction began before it even started, the fear that arises of judgment from others, the day when she thought her life was completely over and the heart riveting event that turned her entire life around into a healthier path.
She also talks about the things that broke her down and stripped her of her power are the same things that give her the most power today.
"We can't paint up an exterior and expect the interior to match it."
"Every idea of who I was going to be when I grew up, disappeared. The future dissolved. All that was there for me was getting high."
"I decided I was going to meet me and learn to love me."
"Today I get to live my life in service and my service is so often using so much of my suffering."
"The things that broke me down and stripped me down of my power at one point are the same things that give me the most power today. That heal me and keep me whole and that's transformation, that’s possible in recovery where we turn our greatest struggles into our assets and gifts."
"Transformation is possible for everyone. "
What else could you ask for in life to be a young woman facing a lifetime of possibilities?
"To understand what my purpose is in life already, the least I can do is live it."
"There is purpose in my experience and there is a design greater than I can conceive."
