I had the great pleasure of interviewing Kathy Tuccaro.
Kathy has just celebrated 7.5 years sober, now drives the biggest truck in the world, is an author and a motivational speaker.
Sadly, she also suffered serious abuse from a very very young age.
The thing that struck me the most about Kathy is her incredibly optimistic personality.
She is the kind of person that has come out on the other side of a deeply traumatic situation and is without a doubt thankful for what life is giving her.
Her story is a testament to how strong human beings are and what we can overcome and achieve if we are brave enough to face life.
Not only that, she is a person of action, she has started a number of practical and positive initiatives, which are clearly helping people in her local community.
I read her post https://kathytuccaro.com/2018/07/27/where-it-all-began/. Kathy mentions, she believes God played a role in saving her life. Of course none of us know how or why we get these moments of grace in our lives.
I think for me personally and this has nothing to do with Kathy’s story, but one thing that I have learnt is that even though we are no longer being chased by wild animals, we can still put ourselves at risk in this world which has become quite safe. While I don’t think we need to be bubble wrapped, I believe there are situations we can’t always get out of and if I choose to drink, then those situations start to flood into my life.
Kathy, like me, realises that for her being sober makes her life infinitely better than if she were to drink any alcohol at all. She talks about a really interesting dream she had and became sober from that dream. Like me her life is profoundly better without alcohol and horribly bad with it.
Thank you for being on my show Kathy and I look forward to keeping up with your adventure.
