Facing Trauma

I am posting this now because of a video I saw of Elizabeth Smart speaking about how she faced her trauma. Although I will write in more detail about the accident at a later date, I wanted to share this now.

Please watch the video and hear what she has to say.

As a survivor,whether it be from a young age from trauma, relationships, deployments and just up until 9 months ago this hit home.

I am still trying to forgive the person who hit our car for reasons still not quite clear. He put my daughter and I both in the hospital. I am still recovering after 5 surgeries with a 6th scheduled.

Powerful quotes from Elizabeth Smart-

“Forgiveness isn’t for the other person, it is for yourself”

“What happened to you doesn’t define you it’s about how you react “

“The best thing you can do is to show them you are happy”

Very powerful. Very true.

You are here for a reason. You have a story to tell. #motivationalspeaker #survivor #lifecoach #blogger #armyveteran

Watch this video and listen to what Elizabeth Smart says about overcoming trauma.
