How I Overcame Impossible

That might be me on stage but it took a VILLAGE to get me there. I’d like to take a moment to walk you through the 17 month journey of HOW I got to *this* moment – sharing my Recovery Journey with PTSD at a Mental Health Summit.

Copper Mental Summit 2018

1) Jan 2017 a mentor said I would do ? one day. I laughed because I’d NEVER told anyone my story.
.
2) An incredible group of humans supported me as I began sharing my story with them (so many I won’t name because I’d forget someone ?)
.
3) A friend told me, while in Italy, that I already knew HOW I’d transformed. And challenged me to write it down. It flowed out on to paper in 3 hours.
.
4) Family beside me every step of the way.
.
5) Clients who have allowed me to mentor and lead them….such a gift!
.
6) Another mentor who taught me how to listen to my heart & soul THEN share it.
.
7) More amazing supporters, challenges to share more, encouragement to step out more.
.
8 ) Jan 2018 watching friends kill it on stage, longing for my impact, hearing Greats say they struggle with what I struggle with. COMMITTED that weekend to DO more.
.
9) Same week ? event was booked.
.
10) Book collab about my trauma story.
.
11) Tough convo with another mentor about how I’m not pushing my material.
.
12) My Dad watching my kids so I can finalize presentation.
.
13) Family listening to presentation.
.
14) Day Of: So much Support sent in, in laws watching kids, Hubby all in, amazing set up gals, so much!
.
I wanted to give up on ? 17 mos ago. Yes, it took 17 mos from the very first mention, a year for me to say YES, and 5 months of healing-searching-mentoring to speak.
.
Never give up. Ever. Push through the hard. It will feel like walking in mud at times, do it. You will ? , grab a tissue. Questions and doubts will arise and crash down, only speak life AND take action (even if it’s cleaning your house or working out ?).
.
Today I share with you what I truly believed was impossible. Now I know IMpossible forever because I never give up.
