#trauma

This #10yearchallenge made me stop and think it’s a freakin miracle my marriage survived a catastrophic accident. It actually ended up being anything BUT a catastrophe but it certainly gave us both some gray hair!⁣ ⁣ I rarely post pics of my hubby because he isn’t crazy about it. Okay, let’s get real, he hates it. The pic on the left is from September of 2008 when he was awarded the Metal of Valor for his bravery by our governor at the time @schwarzenegger. I was so excited when he went on stage with Arnold my hands were shaking and I got no video. We were newlyweds and had a new baby. I was at the height of my fitness career—training clients, working as a run leader for @Nike and doing fitness videos.⁣ ⁣ That ALL changed in the blink of an eye.⁣ ⁣ After my motorcycle accident it would have been easier for him to walk away. Instead he took on the job of taking care of me through 34 surgeries, being Mr Mom, and continued being a CHP for @chp_westvalley working every day to provide for our family. He loved me through it and loved me when I didn’t love myself.⁣ ⁣ I never dreamed 10 years ago that my life would be so different today. So many surgeries and countless days of recovering and rehabilitating taught me life lessons and shifted my perspective. I feel like the universe gives you a new pair of rose colored glasses when you have survived trauma. ⁣ ⁣ The journey to get healthy took years. The journey to acquire the tools to go after my dreams and write a book about it took years. The journey to a thriving marriage took years. Anything worth having is worth working for it AND it takes time. I believe anything is possible! Never give up on your dreams.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #nevergiveup #myhero #myrock #marriagegoals #motorcycleaccidentsurvivor #CHP #CRPS #traumasurvivor #choosetothrive #miracles #mindsetiseverything #mindsetofsuccess #trauma #metalofvalor #truelovestory #truelove #resilience #resiliency #truegritandgrace #grit #godsgrace #dreambig #powerofshe #girlpower #empoweredwomen #transformation #scars #crpswarrior
