Author "True Grit & Grace" Talks Turning Tragedy Into Triumph
At age 38, my life was turned upside down. Hit by an SUV. Recovering from 34 surgeries to save my leg from amputation. Diagnosed with an incurable disease dubbed the suicide disease. As result, I lost my business and I had zero self-confidence.
I had spiraled down into a depression because I had tried everything for my chronic pain and nothing worked.
Have you ever felt so hopeless and stuck that you wanted to give up? Well, that was me. Then one night I was lying in my hospital bed and my life flashed before my eyes…
I remembered something my grandfather had said, “You have a shovel in your hand. You can either lean on it and pray for a hole or start digging.”
Right then and there, I realized I had a choice. I could either give up and give in to the pain or start digging and fight to create something positive out of my circumstances.
