Blessed With MS?!
Being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 30 years ago was a huge wake-up call. I had been going through life as a “Stressed-Out, Overachieving Perfectionist” and was married to this identity. At that time, I was lost.
I wish I could say that this diagnosis awakened me right away, but in actuality, it took another 25 years.
Until there was no hope of getting better with traditional medicine, I continued to power through.
Looking back, I can see how I took on the roles of people-pleaser, avoider, and peacekeeper so I did not have to deal with my emotions. As long as I was showing up in service for someone else,
I felt I was doing God’s work and all would be well. Not!
When my health came crashing down and I was at my lowest point,
I yelled out to God and said, “WTF do you want from me?”
Even though He didn’t answer right away, this moment of surrender opened a gateway to something bigger than I ever could have imagined. This was a catalyst to feeling my feelings, putting the past in perspective, and
healing from the inside out.
MS has slowed me down physically so I could grow spiritually. It has brought me to my knees so I could break free of limiting beliefs and identities and see beyond physical appearances.
On October 28th, I am celebrating being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis for 30 years. I know now that this disease was never meant to be my destiny. It was a wake-up call to learn how to love and appreciate myself, flaws and all. By going within and doing the inner work to heal my heart, I can see beyond labels and limitations.
I see you and appreciate where you are on your journey.
It is not easy to let go of old habits, but it is fun to create new ones.
Unlike traditional therapists and coaches, I don’t guide you to rehash your past. I encourage you to see it as a blessing. I help you find the love, appreciation, approval, and validation you seek from within,
so you are no longer at the mercy of others.
