How Do I know?
A little over a year ago, I was hit by a major earthquake: my husband suddenly and unexpectedly left me for another woman. And I was NOT prepared.
I had spent 7 years on the back burner, prioritizing everyone else around me. The term self-care induced guilt, a deep sense that I deserve it, and a little bit of an eye roll. I felt so consumed by motherhood, supporting my husband through drug and alcohol recovery, and healing from PTSD.
I didn’t know myself, I didn’t really even love myself. In my world of priorities, I simply did not exist.
And when the earthquake hit, I felt so unbelievably broken.
My husband leaving was earth-shatteringly devastating.
But it was also an OPPORTUNITY:
To learn to love myself
To create a life centered around celebrating myself
To embrace such strong self-care that I will never collapse like that again
And through it all, I discovered something amazing: ME.
I CREATED THE LIFE I WAS MEANT TO LIVE
I walked through fire to create a life of radical self-care. I felt in love with myself so fiercely that I bask in the gratitute of the life I’ve created.
