3 years ago I was incapacitated in the ICU for a misdiagnosed case of myocarditis that turned into a nearly fatal heart attack. And that wasn't even my closest near death experience: Grappling with suicide from over a year of not talking to my family because of a fallout, a break up, low self esteem, and not finding happiness in my career path pulled me close to believing I didn't have a purpose in this world 😔. But sometimes in life losing all hope can help you find freedom- When you hit rock bottom you're forced into an intense paradigm shift... and that's what happened to me at this chaotic point. I had no choice but to completely change my approach on life. It was hard at first, but eventually choosing a 100% cardiovascular recovery through healthy habits💪 and no heart steroids, falling in love again, leaving my job to pursue my new found passion in astronomy, and a conscientious effort to change my perspectives in life to be more thankful and optimistic got me trending in a more positive direction. I'm super thankful that the hardships in my life ended up being huge catalyst to make vast differences in my life. Now everything in me yearns to share my story, my passion, my faith, and my perspectives with others in hopes to inspire. I just want people to know to never be afraid to hit rock bottom and start over, because it's always a new chance to rebuild things they way you want. My life isn't perfect, but the small gains I made 3 years ago have compounded and brought a lot of joy into my life now, to the point where I love myself. Look for your purpose, identify long term goals, and create habits you know will help you towards those goals. Perspective is EXTREMELY powerful. And with the right ones, adversity can be an extreme but effective motivator that improves the quality of your life drastically and find purpose. Don't ever lose faith in yourself and your abilities, God has a purpose for it all, especially the failures. Everyone has a season.❤️
