After spending time in Morro Bay withTom and the boys a couple weeks ago I couldn’t help but make this #throwbackthursday different and special. I went back to the last time we spent the day there with the whole family and had to search high and low for that pic on the left. I finally found it in a 2009 file inside another file from my old LG phone (along with some crazy cute ones I can use as high school and college blackmail hehe😈).
That picture is of Madison, Will and I. I was pregnant with Aden. It was in one of the darkest times of my life but I hid it well with a smile. I knew this picture could be seen as true happiness because I knew how to hide my pain and depression but I didn’t know how damaging it could be to not face my demons and let them reside in my mind and in my heart.
The pic on the right is in the same spot but with Will and Aden. And, with me as a whole new person I never knew existed. A better mom, friend, partner, and now a coach that reaches out to men and women who feel the way I did back in 2009. Lost, hurt, unsure of my future, and unable to ask for help.
If you look at these pictures separately you wouldn’t notice a difference. If you look at them side by side it’s so glaringly obvious. The smile says everything to me. My posture, my confidence, my knowing that while my journey in the last three years was far from simple it was absolutely worth it and I would do it again 10 times over if I had to just to be where I am today.
The moral here folks is don’t prejudge a book by it’s cover. Don’t think just because someone wears a smile that they have true happiness in their life.
You never know what a person’s going through. You never know their story unless you ask. You never know how much you can change a persons life just by reaching out and saying hello.
If you need help I CAN HELP. Let’s find your true happiness and true smile my friend. The period of suffering is over. Message me today and let’s chat.
And in the same way my mind, body, soul has transformed I’m spending the next 3 months focusing as hard on my business as I have on my health and would love to have that chat if you’d like to know how the personal accountability has helped me persevere and want to know more about joining my #shinebrighttribe of coaches!!
