How To Turn Your Life Around Is Within You


Trust The Bigger Picture. Even When It Feels Like Everything Is Going Wrong – Trust It’s Going Right!

I remember hearing advice similar to this after my daughter passed away and honestly I didn’t understand and hearing it I became angry.

It’s easy to trust the bigger picture when life is going well, but when challenges drop us to our knees it’s hard to trust and find the good in it.


Watch this video. I share some thoughts on how to turn your life around and trust in the bigger picture.




Whether it is the death of a loved one, the challenges of divorce, loss of innocence, or serious illness. Whatever it is we all have had challenges and we can choose to turn our life around. To live a life without limits.

After my daughter died I felt like I had been cheated. I complained about how life wasn’t fair. How no one understood what it was like. That she didn’t deserve to die.

You see if we choose to think about how unfair or bad our life is or has been we choose to live our life as a victim. It’s like drinking  a small dose of poison every day.

Every single moment of every single day we choose how we experience and live our lives with the thoughts we choose to believe.

If we choose to see gratitude – forgiveness – and joy we choose to live empowered.

Today I know her life was a blessing, that her life had a purpose and that her purpose was served. It’s a choice to live empowered, grateful and find the joy in each day.

How have the challenges in your life created your thoughts and beliefs? How can you change the beliefs or thoughts to be more empowered? Leave us a comment below we would love to hear from you.


To Your Life Without limits,

Live a life without limits

    Hi Jean!
    I, too lost a child prematurely. My son was 18 yrs. old and was killed while hunting. As you know, the thoughts and feelings that run through your very soul is like a freight train that is out of control. I tried very hard not to be angry at the person responsible because I was afraid that that anger would manifest itself into creating a hardened heart and the weight of that was so overwhelming that I just couldn’t allow it to happen. After all, I still had my 13 yr. old daughter to help navigate through this tragedy and my husband needed my support as well. It took 4 yrs. and a complete emotional breakdown for me to get the professional help that I needed to help myself navigate through this tragedy as I didn’t realize how I was not taking care of myself because I was too busy taking care of others to get through this event in our lives. It was through some very intense therapy with a wonderful professional and praying for God’s help to get me through this awful time in my life that I can now look back and know that through God bringing this woman into my life at a time when I needed her and His divine guidance and peace through prayer that I was able to come to the realization that Ryan’s time with us was over and it was time for him to return to heaven. I truly believe that we all have a time in the future when we will be returning to God and the acceptance of that really was a turning point for me. I miss my son dearly but I so very grateful to have had him in my life and have him for the time I did, I can’t begin to tell you.
    Thank you for your site. I am new and learning a lot.

      Thank you Lola for your comment. It is by far the biggest lesson of my life but now I know how honored and blessed we are to have had the experience and lesson in our life and then to be able to take the lesson, give it meaning and serve others. I know it was not for nothing and I am with you I truly believe we will all be returning home.

    We lost our first born son to leukemia 14 years ago. The sadness will always be there but we too have come to accept that his life and death are a part of our lives and our love lives forever. We had two children after him and believe we are better parents than we would have been without the loss of our sweet baby. Death is not the enemy; giving up on life and joy is the real enemy.
    My heart goes out to you Jeanmarie and Lola. Thank you for sharing.

    Your welcome Karen – Thank you for sharing your story. I agree giving up on life and joy is the enemy and what a waste the loss would be if we never learned the lessons and joy that their life did bring.
