How This Mom Cracked The Code For Joy And Success—And How You Can Do The Same
** OGTV celebrates all Moms on Mother's Day with this story of perseverance by a Mom who had every reason to give up her hopes of a happy life but simply refused to give in and found a way to turn her life around. **
At the age of 24, Shilamida felt that she had found success: she was earning a six-figure income and had a nice boyfriend. But just 2 years, everything seemed to fall apart. Her relationship ended shortly before she discovered she was pregnant. Her father passed away from cancer and her mother had been diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time; Shilamida found herself as a single mother and was living in poverty. This was rock bottom.
Fortunately, Shilamida didn't allow her hardship to destroy her life. In her search to recover peace and achieve her dreams, she credits the birth of her son and also the discovery of meaningful spiritual practices with helping her turn her life back around.
After going to massage school and starting a new career in acupuncture, Shilamida began to study under some prominent spiritual advisors. Through her practice, she discovered what she had been missing in her life: gratitude.
During the next 13 years, Shilamida intentionally pursued feelings and practices of gratitude—and her life completely changed! She lost over 100 pounds and started to let herself be loved by others. Now, Shilamida is 38 years old, and living a life she feels proud of with the love of her life and their five children.
This past year, Shilamida released her first book, inspired by her experiences and spiritual practice. In the interactive book, called "31 Days of Gratitude", Shilamida shares hard-earned knowledge and encourages journaling and reflection on how readers can live happy lives, just by changing their mindsets.
When asked if she had any advice to give to others, Shilamida simply stated: "The life that you want is yours for the taking."
We hope that Shilamida's story inspires to live the life you've always dreamed of! We know it has for us.
