I’m Travis “Featherhawk” Snyder, and I’m a humble, grateful and thankful recovering addict. By the grace of the God of my understanding, I am able to share with you my story of courage, strength, and hope. I have survived the deadly disease of addiction. I am currently 2 years and 7 months clean, sober and healthy from what was a 15 year active addiction to drugs but specifically heroin and opiates. The last 7 of those years were spent at the mercy of a syringe. On December 22nd, 2011 I was at the end of a two month long, hopeless drug binge. On this day I was arrested by two police officers who I now call my “Angels in Blue.” I was arrested for multiple drug charges and was immediately locked up in the Schuylkill County Prison. In jail I suffered from intense opiate withdrawal. It was during this time that I surrendered myself to the will of my God. I let go of everything I thought I knew about life, and asked for his help. After suffering for 13 days, I had a profound spiritual awakening. I knew in that moment that I wanted to live a better life. What I did not realize was how much purpose my new life would eventually have. According to the statistics I should not be able to address you in this capacity. Knowing this has allowed me to appreciate life on a level that I never thought was possible. I understand that my sobriety is a gift, and so I will use this gift to the best of my ability. My goal is simple: I will inspire people so that they may also do great things as a result of making positive changes. I will do this by sharing my thoughts on recovery, health, fitness, life, and pretty much every thing I believe is worth sharing with the world. Through my blog posts you will learn a great deal about me, my story, my brands, my goals, my dreams, my selfless acts and my ongoing quest to be the most positive and passionate role model that I can possibly be.
