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.
