Life 10 Years After Trauma - Taking Back My LIFE!!

October 28th, at 8:30 p.m. (give or take a few minutes) it will be 10 years since I was literally knocked off my high heeled life. If you are a new reader - you can read about my accident here and here. Reflecting back I have to say this past decade has been the most difficult time of my life. It began with tradegy; in between lots of ups and downs - the reset button pushed more times than I like to admit; and  has ended with a sadness and emptiness that I could never have imagined was possible.

Oct/Nov - 2006
As the week leading up to the anniversary of the day everything changed in my life approached, I became acutely aware while the accident stole many facets of my life, self and dreams, it has also given me experiences - that I may not otherwise have had. All of of  my experiences Pre- and Post - accident have brought me to the beginning of the next chapter of my life. I'm alive and thriving (some days more than others), but, what I have learned in the last 10 years is : if we are not happy with how our life is going - we have the power to create a life and self that we want.

Sept. 2016

For those who may be going through a challenging time I leave you with some quotes from some amazing women ... that I read often to remind me that any thing is possible - and it's up to me to create the self and life I want be and live.

With this post I'm closing a chapter .... 
and beginning a new one ... that I'm calling the Resilientista Years.
I hope you will join me on this next chapter, where I hope to continue to inspire you to live your version of a High Heeled Life (aka best life)

You are the curator of your life so make it luxurious,

  1. Celia, I'm always amazed when I think of what you've experienced and how you continue to CHOOSE to live life joyfully and embrace each day. You are a wonderful example to many of us, and I'm so thankful your life was spared! May the next decade bring even deeper peace and healing to you.

  2. What a great reminder of what you've gone through and how you are so much on the other side of it. I can't recall how many years I've been following you but it wasn't that long after you began blogging. You have gained so much strength and confidence, and it is showing more and more. I'm so glad you lived!
