How did I get back to ‘me’ after trauma, loss, and depression?

The other day someone sent me a message and said she didn’t know how I did it. How did I get back to ‘me’ after everything I went through?

First, I gave myself grace. Then, I got to work. And the first thing I had to do was make a decision. I wasn’t going to settle anymore.

I knew that I deserve better than what we’ve been through, and that my kids deserve better, too. It wasn’t fair to any of us to not live the most enriched life we possibly can. And, as a single mom, I knew that it was up to me to make things better. I had to set the example.

So, I started with my mindset. It always starts with mindset. (You can check out my interview with Michele Meza to learn more about that.) As she reminds us, “thoughts become words become actions,” so you have GOT to start with what’s going on in your head.

Just this week, I’ve had to pull myself out of that negative space on several occasions. All I could see were the challenges ahead of me, the plans that aren’t working, the places I’m “dropping the ball.”

But when I intentionally shifted my perspective, those same challenges turned from roadblocks to stepping stones. 

I sat down to focus on 2023 and began reviewing this past year. Let me tell you, 2022 started out rough…

The first quarter was messy and ugly. This time last year, I was in the hospital, literally ready to give up on life.

Fast forward to today, and I’m humbled by my achievements. Over the past 9 months:

– I traveled without my children and focused on myself for almost 2 weeks
– I bought a house in California
– I moved my family from IL to CA
– I rebranded my business + began sharing my story with others
– I co-authored a book + became an international best-selling author
– I appeared in my first podcasts
– I became a public speaker
– I produced + hosted a virtual summit with international experts
– I began hiring a team + delegating tasks within my business
– I’m preparing to publish my next book in Summer 2023

WOW!!! When I look at it that way, I feel incredible – unstoppable! Like I can do ANYTHING! Because the truth is that I can. And so can you!

Getting back to yourself after a breakup or loss starts with getting your mind right and I want to help. I want you to experience that same feeling of empowerment!

So, I’m opening up my calendar next week for 12 free coaching calls as a special holiday gift for you! Let’s connect to talk about your specific situation and plan for stepping into your feminine power in 2023.

You deserve better, too. I can help you get there. Get started HERE.

Founder and registered Yoga teacher Krystal Casey is a mom of five who discovered Yoga in 2014 as a way to help cope with her own postpartum depression and anxiety. As a woman with a history of trauma, motherhood had unlocked a portal of pain she didn't realized existed within her. Years of traditional therapy and medication had proved unsuccessful, so Krystal began searching for a more natural alternative of healing. This began the journey that led her to Yoga. Inspired by the positive changes she experienced, Krystal became an online health and fitness coach to support other women with similar struggles. She soon found herself training to teach various fitness classes and certified by the American Council of Exercise (ACE) as a group fitness instructor. In 2018, while opening what she designed to be a dance-fitness studio, Krystal discovered the beauty that is Aerial Yoga and instantly fell in love! She has since certified in Aerial Yoga, Yoga for Kids, and Yoga for Children with Special Needs. In 2021 Krystal and her family faced tragedy once again; her husband was charged with several felony counts of sexual abuse against a minor and he overdosed on methamphetamine and alcohol before justice was served. This devastated her. But with 5 sets of eyes watching and impressionable hearts learning, she refused to give up. Instead, she returned to her practice and her tribe, and let them carry her through it. Now, she uses her training and these experiences to help women overcome trauma and the challenges it brings.
