#THE REASON WHY
THERE CAN’T BE ENOUGH POSITIVITY SPREAD INTO OUR WORLD
The answer is simple: there can’t be enough positivity, encouragement, and honesty spread into our world.
As soon as my story – about getting back up after hitting rock bottom – or one of my posts can do something good for someone somewhere out there, the existence of this blog is more than justified.
That is what happened to me. The story of someone else helped me pushing through a challenging and dark time. And now it’s time for me to give something back.
THE STORY OF SOMEONE ELSE HELPED ME PUSHING THROUGH
It was the story of Jeff Bauman, who survived the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013, that inspired me to hang on, to not give up, to not stop fighting and keep hoping for better days. The universe threw his story precisely at the right time in my life. Those days I have been severely depressed and desperate; I had no idea where my life was heading, I felt utterly lost for the first time in my life. Jeff’s honestly told story prevented me from losing faith and it became an important source of motivation and inspiration for me ever since.
His book “Stronger” became a loyal companion of mine on my healing journey. Even more, it set the initial impulse in my head and heart that I can do something good by telling my story, too.
THAT’S WHY I STARTED TELLING MY STORY
So here we are, a few trials and tribulations of life later, I eventually started telling my story – confidently and proudly because it’s a good story, it has a happy end. Though it’s an intense roller coaster ride through all kind of emotions, physical conditions, and mental states; it’s about falling down and standing up, about pushing through and believing in one’s very own power of achieving everything you are dreaming of.
WRITING AS A THERAPEUTIC MEAN
Besides the intention of inspiring others by my story, writing about what has happened and is still happening to me and my life due to my sick-years became an indispensable part of my healing process. It helps me to reflect, to digest, to understand and to finally accept that a severe illness destroyed my old life.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at any time.
Have a good day!
