You Are Stronger Than You Assume
Slightly over 18 months in the past I made a dedication to do one thing out of character: to put in writing a e-book in regards to the days main as much as the launch of The Virgin Weight-reduction plan, together with the behind-the-scenes story solely my shut family and friends ever knew.
The months throughout that e-book launch have been a terrifying time. Not as a result of I used to be afraid of instructing folks about diet, however as a result of docs informed me on September 10, 2012 – mere days earlier than the launch of The Virgin Weight-reduction plan – that I wanted to drag the plug and let my 16-year-old son die after he was the sufferer of a horrendous hit-and-run accident.
My life was unraveling earlier than my eyes.
The weeks and months that adopted taught me extra about myself, about hope, and about leaning into concern than any of the earlier 40 years.
And that vulnerability I felt in the course of the days instantly following Grant’s accident is precisely what I’ve felt these final 18 months, reliving each second as I wrote the e-book that’s the idea for the documentary movie you’re seeing right now.
It’s a scary feeling. But it surely’s one I’m leaning into as a result of I’ve discovered that sharing our struggles may be each bit as useful as sharing our victories. So I’m sharing each.
My hope is that you simply’ll watch it, really feel moved and impressed, and share the story with folks you care about in order that they, too, can embrace the message – that you’re stronger than you assume.
After years of family and friends telling me this story wanted to be informed, I leaned into my concern and stepped out of my consolation zone. I’m hopeful that sharing it would bless and encourage you, and that you simply’ll be impressed to embrace the distinctive energy you need to accomplish nice issues, even throughout occasions of large stress and heartache.
As you watch You Are Stronger Than You Assume, you’ll see why I imagine within the transformational energy of gratitude. There have been moments of full despair and frustration throughout Grant’s restoration. However there have additionally been so many miracles, so many people who opened their hearts and gave us hope. Regardless of how difficult or painful life is, there may be ALWAYS one thing to be thankful for. I imagine a part of being robust is figuring out how one can be grateful in each scenario.
With love and gratitude,
