There are moments in life when something happens, life alters, and your entire perception transforms instantly. For Carrie Maldonado, that’s not how it went down. She had been living a comfortable life: a successful corporate career and a relationship with someone who was perfect for all intents and purposes–but it was a lie. From eating disorders lasting from her teenage years well into adulthood, to alcohol addiction, and finally a suicide attempt, Carrie shares how she went about life trying to fill a constant void . . . and how she finally learned to show up and be who she was created to be.
She is a Business and Career Transition Coach, Author of Grace Group and Mindset for Consultants, and helps others write, edit, and launch books they’ve always wanted to write. A constant empowerer of women, Carrie is Mom to Grace (8), and twin boys, Ben and Aiden (6) whom she was not exactly expecting to have in her 40’s.
In this episode, she talks about the moment where she was taken to “the ward” after her suicide attempt and realized she was judging the people there–all the while as they, in turn, were judging her. Carrie shares the lessons she learned on how she turned her life around and chose to keep showing up. “Even though I wanted to die . . . there was a tiny part of me that didn’t . . . and I knew it might be God.”
Listen till the end as Carrie and I dive deep into topics like being misunderstood, perspectives, faith, expectations and assumptions. Listen as we encourage you to keep showing up in the face of adversities like addictions, lost hope, dreams and relationships. You will be inspired as you listen to shared stories of perseverance so that you can navigate through difficult circumstances and get back on track to living a joyful life based on who you truly are.
