Today I’m sharing a personal process that has taken a lot of work. I left childhood with a heavy heart. But I wanted to feel happy. In college days, I observed other people who seemed light-hearted and was amazed. How did they do it?
In mid-college, I was struck by a flying object and got a traumatic brain injury, which actually affected me for years. Ouch! I pushed forward with my education and grad school. I was working as an engineering manager when, at age 26, my joints began to burn. I thought, oh well, Mom had arthritis from age 27, so like her, I’ll be taking anti-inflammatories the rest of my life. No big deal. Wrong! Within a year, I was burning from head to toe. And stiff. It was difficult to move if I didn’t exercise at least an hour a day. I knew if I didn’t beat this thing somehow, I would be in a wheelchair by age 40. No marriage, no kids. A grim vision.
So I began to interview anyone who had terrible pain. They were grateful. Someone was actually interested in their observations! I tried everything they said worked, and I researched holistic solutions. Within 8 years, I had dissolved the horrible burning condition. I knew life is rich with opportunities to make choices. I was now more interested in natural pain solutions than in engineering, so I moved professionally into holistic and energy healing.
Decades later, my heart is no longer heavy. I have a thriving practice as a holistic guide and energy therapist, plus hundreds of articles online, a Best Life Template, three books, and other products to help people. I am married to my soulmate and have many friends. I am somewhat known for my photography, especially of our Feng Shui Garden. I also paint. My husband and I live in a charming home near a park, and we enjoy our quiet life. My brain–so badly injured in college days– works better than it ever has– clearly and with a fantastic memory.
I live in gratitude and joy and satisfaction. Because of my experiences, I believe that people can make choices to move from a heavy heart to a joyful one, from a challenged body system to a thriving one, from pain to comfort. Perhaps this very short story of my life will inspire something in some corner of yours. And may you spend as much time as you can, in being Healthy, Happy, and Loving Lifesm ! See you there!
