A Life Always Worth Living

img_1593

Everything always works out, and everything is meant to be … but you have to trust that … you have to let go. This has been one of the hardest and simultaneously, best years of my life. I’ve never loved more, grieved more, smiled more, or been completely confused and in shock.

I’ve done more this year personally and publicly than I ever thought possible. I’ve had incredible things come into my life I never expected. And just as fast – I’ve lost things in my life I never would have expected.

But through the tears, the confusion, the emptiness, the feelings of being completely lost … I was left with myself. Truly left with myself … absolutely alone. Nothing to numb the pain, my thoughts, the questions, the unknown. And it was the most beautiful thing that could have happened.

💞YOU have to stand alone with YOU💞

I can’t tell you when life will “make sense,” but I can tell you that you’re never alone. I can tell you that you can survive your fears – you can survive yourself – you can love yourself. And in doing that – you take back a sense of power, peace, love and compassion that will help you trust in the beauty of this life. Trust me until you trust for yourself.

I have grown more this year than I have in my whole life. I know who I am. I promise you there is so much reward in showing up as you are – feeling how you feel. I promise those feelings won’t last either. Because there were many times this year I was sure my heart would break … now I know it’s made of diamonds. ~Britt💎💓💎

  1. My daughter is in the throws of anorexia and Brittany has helped me. I just wish my daughter would read her book and blog. Brittany is so inspirational that I believe she could help my daughter. I just do not know how to help my daughter anymore. She is refusing all treatment now that she is 18.

    1. Sonia, I can’t tell you how much your kind words mean to me. My heart goes out to you and your daughter, as I can place myself back in my own shoes at that age, and I know what a difficult time it was for myself and family. It makes my journey so worthwhile to know that you found my book helpful and my blog so as well.

      If your daughter would ever like to email me, or if she knew of my story and that there was someone else out there that had been through it and found a significantly better life through recovery, sometimes that can be a beneficial piece to wanting to get well. I know for me, I spent many years not trusting or believing treatment professionals because they hadn’t been “through it” and I always thought they were lying to me. Of course in hindsight none of that was true, but I wish when I was younger I would have had someone to look up to. I don’t know if she likes social media, but I have a link on my website here with all my social media sites that she might want to follow.

      I’m not always the quickest at responding to emails depending on how busy I am, but I’ll be sure to get back to her if she’d ever like to talk: bburgunder@charter.net – and the same goes for you – please feel free to email me anytime. Thank you so much again for your kind words and know that the best thing you can do is keep believing in your daughter, just as I do. I’m sending you both all my love. ~Brittany
