Travis Crittenden 
Recovery Coach 

    Through hollow, dark, swollen eyes, I faced death directly in front of me.  Deflated, humiliated, depressed and guilt stricken I looked at myself in the mirror one last time and screamed who are you and what have you become? For the first time in my life, I answered myself truthfully, and it sucked.  Looking back, it was the truthfulness that made the difference.

    I stopped drinking and dabbling in prescription drugs in March 2013. Today, I am a proud brother of all beings, a loved husband, son and Father.  Most importantly, I am exactly who I knew I was all along and no longer live in fear or suffering.  I am grateful for every day to share the moment of now with all living things.

    In the space between the hardest times of my life and where I am now in the most beautiful times is vast and deep, and it’s my space.  The space between the hard and the beauty was my battlefield. That space was filled with many challenges and obstacles, but I made it, I made it to the beauty side of life.  I put in the work, and I found that life within myself and I allowed the light to shine.

    I am here to support you in your space between the hard and the beauty.  In the place where there are no shadows at times. I am here to listen, and I am here to remind you that you too, have the strength, the courage and the power to find your beauty.  The work is up to you to ignite the light within and accept the life you have always deserved and asked for.


With loving kindness,

Travis
