Sounds backwards right? A miscarriage is this terrible thing… how on earth can it be a blessing?!?
Hear me out.
I didn’t think it was a blessing at first.
At first, I thought I was never going to come back from it. That this awful thing was going to always be there, nagging at me. How could I be happy after something like this?!?
It’s taken me a couple of years and A LOT of work to come to this conclusion.
From where I sit, life if FULL of situations that we aren’t in control of but you can choose how to use them.
You can choose to let a situation be a negative part of your life OR you can find a way to turn it into a positive.
I chose to turn this really terrible moment in time into a positive in my life.
I used it to learn more about myself and my body. I started doing more research and comparing how my body was working and how it was supposed to be working.
I started LISTENING more. So often, we get busy doing life and we forget to stop and listen. I was so guilty of this!
My body was telling me things all along but I wasn’t listening. That had to change!
I used it to make some changes that I had been thinking about making but up to that point, wasn’t brave enough to actually make them.
It catapulted me into the world of holistic wellness. And man, did THAT really change things.. not only my fertility but SO. MUCH. MORE.
It also taught me a few other things that I talk about in the video at the top.
That season of my life taught me SO MUCH and it really opened my eyes to how making a baby really isn’t always so simple. If you’re longing to grow your family but it’s just not happening for you, check out this free guide I just created detailing the things that helped me.
I’m a wife, mom, educator, certified health and life coach, sewing enthusiast and Pinterest guru.
My life has undergone a HUGE transformation in 2020… and I’m not talking about C-19.
I’m talking about transforming from frustrated and hopeless to empowered and liberated… funny, given the current events, huh?
I was frustrated because I had a bigger vision for my life. My husband and I talked for hours about the kind of life we dreamed to give our daughter (and her brother) but I couldn’t see how that was ever going to happen. I felt stuck.
I was making a pretty penny teaching elementary school but it wasn’t my passion, I did it to pay the bills because that’s what responsible adults do. Then, I got a text that changed my motivation.
It was from my husband and it was a video of my daughter taking her first steps. I missed them and I was CRUSHED but I used those feelings to propel me forward.
I had my son in February 2020 and I used my leave to change my life for the better. I found a mentor that has helped me to completely change the trajectory of my life.
All by the grace of God, it’s been like a beautiful metamorphosis.
Now, I’m on this epic journey of self discovery, building my business, raising my babies and growing old with my hubby (and bestie!)
My mission is to empower women to reclaim their lives— body, mind and Pinterest. To assist them in reclaiming their freedom. To advocate for women’s health across the world.
My path has been paved by heartbreak, absent relationships and a boat load of defeat… but I turned it around. There’s nothing special about me. I just made a choice. You can make that same choice and I’m here to help :)
