Jennifer's Story: Living The Life I Was Meant To Live

Jennifer's Story: Living The Life I Was Meant To Live

I left my abusive marriage last May. I was at the end if my rope in April. I was in the garage ready to end everything. I couldn't handle being beaten down so low that I had no where else to go. I closed my eyes and was ready to be done. I then got a vision of my kids and how their life would be without me - their safety, their strength, their everything.

I pulled myself together and made a call to my health care provider that afternoon. She got back to me with in minutes and I was signed up for mental health assistance ASAP. I talked to a social worker for the first month and she got me in touch with women's help groups. They put me and my kids up in a hotel room for 2 months. That was the hardest day ever - packing myself and 3 kids into my SUV and what belongings we could get in and leaving before my husband got home from work.

The next few days were a blur, I just remember talking to police officers, lawyers and counselors. All the while thinking I just want to be left alone. We stayed in the hotel room living on take out and what we could make in the microwave and salads. I found a two bedroom apartment and we moved July 1st last year. Best thing ever!

I had my freedom - I wasn't a robot anymore and so much weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. I was a different me. Soon after I found Lindsay, my reiki teacher. I took my level 1 and level 2 and Holy Fire III from her and she had said she would be teaching a master class in 2021. I signed up for that and her Daring Mavens Membership. All these women have been a great support system for me.

I am happy to say I have now launched my own Reiki Business and I am more happy than I have ever been! I went from being a robot with no love, no feelings to living the life I was meant to live. I literally shut all emotion off for 15 years and now I am thriving powerful women who is a Reiki Master and full of life and loving life again. I am very thankful for finding the real me again. This is my story that I have been sharing. I never thought I would be here!

I found out about Beautiful Disaster through social media. The name Beautiful Disaster I was very drawn to. I clicked on the link and instantly loved the sayings and the clothes. 
To me it means my life has been a disaster. I have had many challenges I have conquered and came out Beautiful. To me the beauty that has come from my disasters is the strength and Self-Love I have found.

A beautiful story of courage, strength and the ability to follow through.
You are an inspiration, to so many women, that are afraid to take that scary step, to leave.
You came through like a champ. Congratulations!
