I Believe Life Happens For Us, Not To Us

Very few humans know this story. I’m sharing it now because this experience helped shape me into the woman I am today, and I believe my story can help someone else.


Earlier in my career, when I was the co-owner of a chain of retail stores, I found out that the President of our company was sleeping with his secretary. (He was my husband. She was my friend.)


Employees had been telling me for months not to trust her, but I didn’t want to believe that she (or he) could do that to me.


But sure enough, on a fateful night in August of 2007, I learned the truth, and I had to face the fact that my life would never be the same again.


In the end, I lost my husband and my friend. I also lost my company, my employees (who were friends), and my source of income.


It was a very dark time.


Some people told me to go on antidepressants. I said no. I told them I deserved to grieve. I decided that I was going to allow myself to feel the breadth and depth of the grief so that I could move through it, release it fully, and move on.


I believe that wisdom came from the Grace of God because making that decision was the moment I started to heal.


Four months later, I was at Date With Destiny with Tony Robbins designing the life I enjoy today.


Life happens FOR us, not TO us.
