Episode #3 When The Light Is Dark
"I came to the fork in the road; are you going to live or are you going to die?"
Clayton Light was spending most of his time in a basement alone. Addicted to alcohol for many years, his hopes and dreams were slipping away until…he almost lost it all. He was handed a choice which required an immediate decision: to live or to die.
This podcast explores the questions: What does it take to overcome addiction? What is the importance of hope? Can you actually win by giving up?
Listen to this compelling Hero’s Journey where Clayton is handed a ticket to freedom, his light is rekindled, and he brings his own painful experience to inspire others living in their own basement of isolation and despair.
If you’re trapped in a hopeless addiction, Clayton encourages you to reach out to a recovery program immediately where you will receive the support you need to walk out of darkness and into a beautiful life.
Clayton Light is a Video Producer/Editor and Motion Designer. His client list includes Fortune 500 companies and nationally known charities. His early work helped pioneer the popular video style called 'motion graphics'. He and his wife of 25 years, Lynn Splendid, formed SplendidLight Media, a marketing communications company that served the wine, food and travel industries. When not working or playing the drums, he enjoys his family of three children and two grandchildren.
After a successful start, his career was interrupted and essentially ruined by addiction. Years of alcoholic isolation left him in poor health, without hope, and ultimately, without his family. This loss resulted in a chance to make his way back to restored health, relationships and, productivity. Clayton has been sober for 5 1/2 years. 24 hours at a time.
