Changing Our Stories to Love & Wisdom (Grateful Flow)

Grateful Flow

Here are three times life did not go as planned, but helped me grow in Love & Beauty.

At the time, this was one of the most devastating experiences of my life. I had a dress, I had a D.J. and venue, and I had a whole life and future planned that was never going to happen. It took a long time for my denial to break down, but ultimately it was a blessing the relationship ended. I learned authenticity mattered and thankfully married someone who loves me exactly as I am.

There was a year where I began to dissociate regularly and I had no idea what was happening to me. I struggled with being detached from my body as well as a whole slew of strange, inexplicable symptoms. The gift of this often harrowing time in my life is it forced me to address underlying pain and loss I had been unable to face until then. This undoing is ultimately what saved me and led me here to you. It has guided this path so that I may help to guide yours. I am forever grateful for this.

While the job didn't end how we planned or anticipated, it helped us reach for our dreams. We moved to where we always wanted to live. I have never loved a place more than where I live right now. Every time I cross the boardwalk to walk on the beach I am grateful.

I love our life here.

Right now I am going through some challenges as well. I'm sure I will write about them in the future, but until I am ready, I take comfort in knowing through the darkest of nights the dawn always breaks.

What gifts do I have yet to see?

I hope all your stories are beautiful.

If it feels right, join me on social for daily inspiration to support your inward path.

Thank you for joining me on this journey. The light in me honors the light in you.

Love this post. I believe it is the first time you have opened up on your personal life to truly show maybe why you began this blog to not only help others, but also yourself. I know many of the epilepsy followers I have, enjoyed starting to follow you and use your helpful practices. Thank you for being yourself in this post. Not caring what anyone else might think, because all that happens to us makes us who we are. Hugs from afar.💜🌴By the way, can I come take a stroll on the beach too?

Thank you Diana for sharing all with our group. Indeed - those areas of mental health - panic attacks, ptsd, etc - although painful - continue to provide me with opportunities to be a better version of myself. I think many of your readership feel the same through your words.

Thank you for sharing your experience, Scott. For me reframing my panic attacks and dissociation as signals from my very normal and healthy subconscious that I have some work to do has been a gift. Frees me from shame so I’m able to do what I need to regain my footing. Like you said ‘opportunities to be better versions of ourselves’.🙏🏻💕
