Briefly describe a miraculous event that happened to you in your life.

A friend posted this question as his status (I love facebook):
"Briefly describe a miraculous event that happened to you in your life."

 And this is my response:
"It's hard for me to describe the miracles without the understanding of the pain. I don't want to sound dramatic, but I had a lifetime of abuse that lead to fear, guilt and shame so huge, it's a miracle I'm still alive.
I had just what I needed to find my way out of the pain.

Miracles included: Splintering myself into different personalities, so the different personalities could hold the pain until I was ready to integrate myself, being able to go through flashbacks so I could remember what happened, understand it and accept it, trusting myself and others when it felt impossible, finding the right books, friends, and therapist at the exact right moment, somehow finding a way to love and accept myself, and so much more. I felt like each step to my own healing and recovery was shown to me just as I needed it. I didn't have the wisdom, but there was Love and Wisdom that guided me.

Because I wanted to hear it back then, I will say, my miracles didn't come because I was "worthy" or a member of a certain religion, or for any other reason than life is miraculous, and we are all deserving of Love, Wisdom, and Miracles."

  1. Even though I haven't suffered anything near what you have, I feel the same way. I feel like it was a miracle that I found the right friends (including Husband) and information the way I did that I could overcome what I've been through.

  2. I think it's a series of miracles when anyone figures out how to live without suffering...

    I'm SO glad YOU are here, and the miracles that have brought you into my life, because I love the insights you give me. Thank you!

  3. Once in a while, I run into someone like you; whether it be on the street or over the web, I seem to find them. I am always amazed at the stories I hear, and it makes me thankful for the life I had (and continue to have). I also get perspective on things, and realize my life isn't nearly as difficult as I make it out to be.

  4. It's amazing how sometimes the miracles are not things that we would think of as being miraculous at the time. We've each had amazing miracles that have lead us to where we stand today. Today we are having miracles that help us get where we need to be tomorrow.
