Did you ever think you could live life to its fullest? Well, I am living a life I never knew even existed for a single mom like myself.
I felt like I was living in the movie Groundhog’s Day. It was just repeating itself over and over and I was stuck in a rut. I felt like no matter what I did it was never good enough and I had no confidence in myself anymore. My divorce and my ex had broken me down so low I felt I was not worth fighting for anymore. I have two young children and I was not playing as much or even laughing anymore. Not only did I go through a divorce but at the same time I was fighting for my life with cancer. I really just had no drive anymore other than my kids and even on most days that was even hard. I was living a nightmare, daily, and had no more fight in me.
We serve at church all the time and that filled my heart with so much. I love to serve. Well, Beauty Revealed was brought to my attention from a friend who also served at church. It sounded great but I just smiled and said “awesome but no thanks”. I had no intention in attending no matter how many times she or her husband mentioned and asked me to go. Why? Because I had no idea what it really was or what to expect. I also didn’t know anyone and I am an introvert that doesn’t like to be in those situations. I said “no” more times than I can even count. Then it was about one month before Beauty Revealed 3 that I finally said “YES”. It has been the best decision I have ever made in my life!
Once I said “YES” there were so many obstacles standing in my way. How can I afford this? What about my kids? My job? I can’t do this, what am I thinking? Once I put all those thoughts to the side and spoke with my friend and then John Edwards, who was beyond supportive and he talked me through the whole process. If he could have confidence in me and not even know me then there must be something others can see that I am missing, I thought. So, I started to sell items that were too small for the kids, dog sitting (by the way, I’m petrified of dogs), babysitting, etc. to earn the funds to make this happen. I accomplished this second big step after saying yes. I felt so proud of myself, something I had not felt in a long time. Anytime I felt fear or doubt before, through and after the Beauty Revealed 3 seminar, all the facilitators have been right there to help support me through it. I feel I have found not only a new support system but truly family. They have never made me feel like I was judged or treated me in a way I should be ashamed. They always lifted me and everyone in the room up with open arms. They meet you where you are at and support you the whole way.
I feel like every man and woman should attend a boot camp produced by Life Quest Seminars whether it be the Forge Experience or Beauty Revealed, no matter where you are in life. It will truly help you heal and learn things about yourself you never even knew you needed to learn and heal from. It opens your eyes and heart in so many incredible ways. If you truly want to start “LIVING LIFE” you should attend one or many of the Life Quest Seminars. You won’t regret it. It was so worth the time and money. I would never ever put a dollar amount on my life again after going to Beauty Revealed 3 and coming back a completely different woman. This was truly the best decision I have ever made for myself and I am thankful I finally said “YES”.
Since Beauty Reveled my kids have said I am finally happy again. They said I laugh and play with them again. I am not exhausted like I was before. I walk with my head held high since I have found confidence in myself and know that I have a purpose here and I hope to help other single moms know they are not alone and that they deserve the happiness that is waiting for them once they find it within themselves. You can’t love others until you truly love yourself and I can now say I truly love who I am today thanks to Beauty Revealed through Life Quest Seminars. I am so excited to support other teams that will get to experience their own amazing breakthroughs and journeys as I return as staff Beauty Revealed 4 because I want to be able to inspire others the way all the staff inspired me through mine. I want to continue to grow and have more breakthroughs and help everyone see they are worth every penny, every tear, and every moment of everything handed to them in life.
I want to thank Life Quest Seminars and I want to thank my friends at church who reached out to me, Brian and Roxanne Fitzgerald, for not giving up on me. And then for John, for surrounding me with love because he could feel my resistance and he talked me through the whole process and he challenged me to see my worth and because of that I walked into a room of amazing women that were not catty and dramatic (that I was afraid of) and they loved me with their open arms and they were just beyond supportive for every moment that I was there. And without them, I wouldn’t be who I am today and I am so very glad that I can look myself in the mirror, every morning when I get up, and call myself beautiful; know that I am worth it, and that I am enough no matter what is put in my path. I thank you all so very, very much.
