There was a time in my life where when I heard the word recovery. I got sad, upset, and even angry because some of me knew that wouldn't happen.

That projected across my life until I was about 16/17 years old. I attended Ala-teen meetings and got the closure I needed to move on with my life, or so I thought.

Then let's fast forward to 2021, divorce and everything, and I needed to have my recovery and path forward of healing. I had to learn what recovery looked like for me, what it felt like, and honestly, for the first time in my life, I had to forgive genuinely.

As we often think, forgiveness justifies the other person's actions and makes them wrong or right. That's wrong; forgiveness brings you peace; it brought me peace, it brought me healing, it gave me back control, it gave me back my life, my sanity, and my power.

All of that to say, I am so happy to have Janice on the Podcast this week as we talk recovery, we talk addiction, we talk about the impacts that addiction has on a family unit. Janice shared her story very openly, and it was easy to share my own story with her.

We hope you enjoy this week's episode with Janie, as it's available now on YouTube and ad-free! Remember to like the video, subscribe to the channel, hit the bell so you never miss an episode, and thank you for being along for the ride.

Remember, you are worthy, loved, and doing a fantastic job as a dad (or mom), and we'll see you!

We'll be over on IG/Threads/Facebook promoting this week's episode; next week, we are excited to welcome back Matt Noonan, host of the Unstoppable Dad Project, for a pt—two and maybe another episode of the year.
