How to be your own HERO



I spent years of my life searching for that one way that I was going to be able to leave the crap that happened in my childhood behind me. I was so sure that there had to be some sort of secret sauce… there had to be someone out there in the world somewhere that could rescue me.

Do you know what I’ve learned after years of not finding what I was sure existed?

I’ve found that it did exist, just not in the way I thought it did. The person who was going to rescue me from my past was me. For me, this included getting myself out of the abuse environment. (You can read more about that story in my book, 
Rising from the Ashes: How to Reclaim your Life after a Traumatic Childhood)

But really, getting out of the abusive environment is only the first step on a very long road of recovery.

Being your own hero is one that requires strength. Strength that you already have. Every person on this Earth has it already inside of themselves. We just don’t always recognize it.

There is one key step that I’d like to dive into a little bit here though. This is a step that is super important in getting unstuck and actually moving forward on your post-trauma life.

🔥🔥 Reclaim your Personal Power- The personal power we hold within ourselves is our most significant resource and it’s the thing we tend to just give away like it’s a free ice cream or something. We give it away to anyone who demands they know more about us than we do. Every time we don’t speak up for ourselves, every time we allow someone else to make a decision for us, every time we do something because someone else told us too… we are giving our personal power away.

Reclaiming my Voice After a Traumatic Childhood

Reclaiming my Voice After a Traumatic Childhood

“Children should be seen and Not heard”



Have you ever heard that expression? 

I

 remember my grandma saying that was the belief of the older generation when she was growing up. 

When she told me this I was in complete disagreement. Even as a teen, I knew that my voice as a young person was valuable. 



As an adult, I have experienced this. Being treated as a child whose opinion isn’t worth anything. 



Truth be told, I’ve felt this way for the majority of my life.

I have struggled hardcore with speaking up for myself, speaking up for the things I believe in because there is almost always someone standing right there, waiting to tell me I’m wrong. 

I

’m a work in progress but I have learned so much on this journey reclaiming my life after my traumatic childhood.

There are 3 things that have really stuck with me lately… 



1) everyone is entitled to their opinion 



2) my voice matters



3) to be witnessed in my truth, is to be loved… therefore, holding back my opinion is a disservice to myself and everyone else. 



The fact is, is that everyone has a different truth based on their own experience. That’s okay. 



After a childhood and young adulthood of being told that your opinion doesn’t matter, it takes time to come out of your shell and embrace your voice.

This sent me on a mission.. how was I going to do this!? Is there a cheat sheet? 



Well.. there wasn’t! It took me a while to put all the things I learned together but I’ve done and I created a program that walks you step by step through reclaiming your voice (and your life, for that matter) after a traumatic childhood.

It’s called “Rising from the Ashes: 90 day program”. There’s no cost to it but I know that it will help you change your life for the better if that’s what you’re going for! If that sounds good to you, start your journey now
