In an instant—everything changed.
This wasn’t an option, it was a calling, and no longer optional. An unshakable feeling down to the very last cell in my body that I had to share my passion on how we can support our families holistically. I had no idea, in that moment, that my life would change forever. Or even more shockingly, just how much it would change…
You see 8 years ago I was a happy stay at home mom, and my world was flipped upside down when my baby was diagnosed with cancer. I had to learn, adjust, grow, still show up as a wife, mom, and caretaker all while being the most emotionally exhausted I have ever felt in my life. It was an incredibly tough time that I wouldn’t wish on anyone, and it lasted a really long time. We fought cancer for two and half years and then had to figure out how to deal with grief as well which was a whole other animal. That part of our journey is another blog post.
However, what I think you should know is that we can all choose to put on different perspective goggles. What I mean by that is we can get SO stuck looking at our situation, any situation from just one angle. What happens though when we choose to step out of our perspective, tilt the angle a little and look again through what I call gift perspective goggles.?! I believe with my heart we can find the gift in any situation no matter how hard it is.
I will never say that cancer was a gift to our family. ever. However we were given many gifts through our cancer journey. The biggest one for us was ALL of the beautiful people that God connected us to during this time. Strangers that became friends, and friends that became ‘framily’. Seeing things through these different gift goggles is a choice, and I will choose to keep seeing it that way, with so much gratitude in my heart all the days of my life.
My encouragement to you if your going through something hard in your life, is tilt the perspective angle a little, borrow my gift perspective goggles and find the gift. It’s there I promise, and you can do really, really, hard things, harder than you thought you ever could and still have joy. I also know this.
Tilt the perspective angle another way and I also see the gift all of the knowledge I gained in supporting Truckers little body naturally alongside conventional treatment. You can never go back from knowledge, you can only keep going forward, and gaining more. It’s what you do with that knowledge that matters most.
Back to me having dinner with my bestie/mentor. It was that moment that I knew in my bones this is what I am suppose to do. Educate, inspire, serve, and help people strive towards optimal health, naturally. I really had no idea what that would mean or how it would change my life, but boy am I glad I leaned into to intuition. Turns out sharing this knowledge has been somewhat healing(I don’t believe you ever fully heal from losing a child), and SO super life giving. It inspired me to go back to school for Nutritional Therapy to learn more in depth, and also to work from home by starting my own health and wellness business. Never before in my life have I ever felt more inspired, or like I was doing exactly what I am suppose to!!!
So in essence by you being here, YOU too are a part of the gift, and YOU look super good through the lens of my gift goggles!!! Thank you!! XO
