Interview with Emma White, CEO and Founder of Life is Worth It.
I had the honor and privilege to be able share my story with the incredible Emma White, Founder and CEO of Life is Worth It. This was episode 10 in her Total Life Wellness Virtual Workshop Series and I wanted to share it with all of you. Being able to use my pain and trauma to help others is a truly incredible and we can't ever do enough to raise awareness with suicide prevention.
It is always an honor to share and speak with fellow storytellers and advocates for the mental well-being of others. It can be hard to open ourselves up to being vulnerable to the world, but it is truly rewarding to impact others and use the pain we once felt for a purpose. I hope you enjoy the interview and please remember help is always available and life is no fun without you in it! You are LOVED!

That Real Talk Motivation
The little things lead to the big picture.
Don't miss the big picture, not paying attention to the small details. We ask for signs and things to happen and then we are to busy to notice or be bothered to embrace the opportunity to learn something. Life is not a coloring book, it's ok to go outside the lines. Don't stay in the land of structure and schedule, allow yourself to enjoy life and embrace the moment. You may see so much you have been missing. After having three spine surgeries, I have learned planning doesn't always go so well and having to be able to learn to roll with the punches is crucial to being a good person and parent.
Happy Friday Trauma Troopers
Lots of people believe if you have been through something you are less than and that sharing things that have happened in the past should stay there but that is simply just not true. Keeping it real as a parent and person is so important. Kids, Partners, Spouses they know when we are upset or something has caused us to go from enjoying a moment to freaking out or having a panic attack. If you aren't real about the things that cause you to feel a certain way someone may think it's their fault. You will continue this pattern of pain and rejection that you most likely you have faced or will cause someone to now face. It's not easy being vulnerable or speaking truth especially when it means loosing those we love. Truth may not always grant you physical freedom, but it is more likely to grant you mental freedom.
