Amy's Story: Motorcycling Is My Therapy

Amy's Story: Motorcycling Is My Therapy

 

So, I want to start by saying that I’m a huge fan of the BD clothing line.  Beautiful Disaster just seem to resonate with me on a very deep level, I feel it describes me in just 2 words. 

 

I’ve been riding motorcycles for the last 14 years now, it’s my therapy.  When my life was going wrong, it saved me.  When my life started going right, it brought me the love of my life.    

 

I left my husband in 2017, after 24 years of being cheated on, ignored and blamed for everything that ever went wrong in his life.  I started seeing a younger man, 17 years my junior.  At first, it was great; we had a pretty simple relationship, no strings, just have fun together.  For about a year, it WAS fun, but I started to see real changes in his behavior.  He had always been a narcissist, I knew that from pretty early on.  He began to be very possessive, but would constantly push me away, then reel me back in.  Then the violence began. At first, it was a little disturbing, but not enough to scare me.  Within just a few short months, it got very physical.  Several 911 calls and one pistol whipping from my son later, after a desperate phone call, I finally had enough.  I cut off all communication, stayed at home, licked my wounds and began the process of healing the hurt.  I loved him, but we were just too toxic together. 

 

I spent the next year getting over him and began dating again.  I dated 2 nice guys in that time that treated me well, but ultimately they just didn’t work out.  Fast forward to February 2020, an acquaintance reached out to me to tell me Happy Valentine’s Day.  He had been following my posts on social media and felt like I needed a pick me up.  We began dating shortly after that.  I’ve found the love of my life.  I have so much joy and love in my heart, and I’m filled with the love he shows me every single day.  I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my life.  My friends and family see the difference in me, and they all tell me that I have a glow that they’ve never seen  in me before. 

 

I’ve had a few pieces of the BD, and funny enough, those closest to me, agree whole-heartedly that Beautiful Disaster describes me to a T.  I now have many, many pieces, and when I go out, especially riding my motorcycle, I find that I’m almost always wearing a BD shirt.  I was riding with friends last October, when I was hit from behind on my motorcycle.  Sadly, It totaled my bike.  Luckily, it was only cosmetic, so I bought it back from the insurance company to rebuild. 

 

My boyfriend, in his infinite wisdom, suggested that there was only one direction to go with it – BEAUTIFUL DISASTER!  He calls me, his beautiful disaster.  So, let's show the world what it represents to us.

 

Thank you, for connecting a simple statement with so many women on so many levels.

I love reading other’s stories of what Beautiful Disaster is or means to them. I have yet to write my story to show here. I’m waiting for a situation to be finalized and then I’ll tell my story. My comment today is an answer to another person’s answer in the comments.
Terri, Who stays confused all day long within yourself. That’s a horrible state of mind to be in. I’ve been there. I learned to finally leave the whole situation in God’s hands otherwise it would have completely consumed me. What does the word forgive mean? I don’t have forgiveness for those who have done me wrong. I forgive them for their ignorance and greed that they grew up being the way they turned out to be. We all have the choice to be who we want to be. It’s our final decision of who we become. I strongly encourage you to finally make a decision on at least one article of clothing or just one item from the Beautiful Disaster website. My first item was the “What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger” hoodie. I feel more empowered when I’m wearing it. I also have “You don’t know my story” Tshirt and leggings along with other clothes and items from Beautiful Disaster. I hope you find peace within your own mind soon. You come across as a very caring person who deserves to be at peace within yourself.

WOW! I’ve read all your stories from these Beautiful Disaster traumas these women went through. I give you all the upmost respect, courage, and congratulations on your success, and onto your next journey in life that is so rewarding you’ll never know the first chapter in your life. To me, your chapter just began by telling your courageous stories. I need to find it within myself to do the same. I’m always putting clothing into my cart, but later on I’m taking it out. I stay confused all day long within myself, until I see someone on the 7th of next month. Believe me it’s fucking hell, and I was not asked to be brought into this world for this fucking shit! Sorry, I have so much in a size of a quarter that is literally packed full in my brain that just doesn’t stop moving around. It’s sad to say, I cannot even pray without being interrupted by something or someone else, what does the word “Forgive” mean? Not in my vocabulary it isn’t used. All you Ladies, I commend you for your courage, and honor. Maybe one day I’ll get my story out and feel “Beautiful,” but for now I’m not all that…just Disaster! This all wouldn’t have helped these women if wasn’t for fact XOXO…Christine for making “Beautiful Disaster” happen in her garage!! Thanks to her, she ROCKS! Along with her “Side Kicks.”
