A Personal Blog About Finding Purpose through Pain
THIS IS MY STORY.
(Well a cliff notes version of it )
My name is Brittany. I'm a lot of things, but most importantly a female on a mission to spread hope, love and light into as many lives as I can, while I have breath in my lungs.
I have experienced a lot of trauma and tragedy in my lifetime. (Abuse, Neglect, Homelessness, Hunger, Loss.) My childhood was something out of a Lifetime Movie. Sadly I never properly dealt with what I had experienced which lead to a nearly fatal serious suicide attempt in 2012.
Since then, I have rebuilt my life by my own design and followed my heart wherever it has lead. It has brought me much joy to help others in their darkest hour within the last 8 years. Finding my purpose through my pain has helped me help others do the same.
People call me a unicorn but I like to think of myself more as a phoenix.
Thank you for taking an interest in my life. If you find anything here I pray that its hope and encouragement to get through the tough times and find the strength within yourself to do so.
My autobiography “Strength Personified: A Personal Story of Tragedy to Triumph” is my first book and was self published on July 27, 2018.
I am diligently working on my next book that is a continuum of my first and looking at a publication date in the fall of 2020.
