The 3 Words That Helped Me Fight Depression!

You must make the “Choice” to take a “Chance” to see a “Change.”  these are the words that changed my life..

For those of you who don’t know a few years ago I was attacked by a dog and had the left hand side of my lip completely ripped off. After getting rushed into emergency surgery I remember waking up and being told by the surgeons that I would likely never be able to smile correctly again as the damage I sustained to the muscles and tissue in my face was much worse than they initially anticipated. I remember sitting there as the tears strolled down my face thinking to myself how awful it looked and who would ever find me attractive. The devastation I felt was gut wrenching and I can still remember it to this very day. Right after this I spiralled into a very deep and dark depression that left me clinging to my bed and completely unmotivated with life.

But it was one day as I was sitting in bed rolling in my state of victimhood and feeling like absolute trash that it dawned on me that I no longer wanted to feel like this and I needed to get my A$$ up and STOP playing the victim. It was that day that I started to make the necessary choice to change my life around. I started taking responsibility for my power or choice, saying positive affirmations, began to be more grateful for everything I had instead of focusing on everything I didn’t have and I began visualising being able to rip a BIG SMILE! I began to read more and educate myself, I started to ask more questions, displayed more acts of kindness, and I began to hold myself accountable for my own goals.

Now after several surgeries later and a few years passing my lip is almost fully built back to the way it was thanks to an amazing group of surgeons and overall I am so happy with where I am in my life. Its crazy when you realise you have the power to take control of your life and to change things around even in your darkest hour. Nowthis small part of my story is a great example of trusting in the universal process and and not being afraid of the 3 C’s in life! ~ After going through such a chaotic and depressing period in my life where I was at the lowest point I had ever been I was able to make the conscious choice to pull myself through the pain and depression and I am now fortunate enough to be sharing my story with other women and inspiring them to do the same in their darkest hours and I have never felt so fulfilled! ~ Overall, you ALWAYS have a choice no matter what situation you are currently in, so don’t be scared of the 3 C’s – CHOICE / CHANCE / CHANGE.

As often times the universe has a greater plan in store for us, and although you may not see the completed picture now in time you will be able to look back and connect the dots. Trust in the process of Choice Chance and Change because it may just change your life for the better!
