30. Heather Zoccali - Finding Beauty in the Trauma of Life

30. Heather Zoccali - Finding Beauty in the Trauma of Life

Heather Zoccali is one of the bravest people I know. She likes to say that life is “brutally beautiful”, and I think she is exactly right. Grab a mermaid print blanket and sit down as she breaks down how we can all look past the trauma and see the beauty

🧜‍♀️ Rainbow-colored scales are kind of her armor: Heather is not taking someone else's trauma.   02:37
👧 Caregiving and forgiveness as two pillars of her life: Heather was a caregiver from the age of nine. 03:17
🛌 Being diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and POTS at 30: life completely changed for her.  04:51
🥊 Having a chronic condition is an ongoing fight: accepting your new normal and giving yourself time to grieve. 07:44 
🤗 The importance of self-compassion and forgiveness: treat ourselves just like you would a friend. 09:28
🌟 Life is beautifully brutal: all the good that came out of the traumatic events in Heather’s life. 10:48
✨ Really knowing and trusting yourself and your voice: showing your vulnerability opens other people towards you. 14:50
😁 When you can joke about yourself it shows that acceptance occurred. 16:37
🎯 Asking ourselves why something bad happened to us is not serving us at all: accept, release and move on. 17:31
