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.
