A few days ago, I was clearing out my desk and stumbled on this photo:
That’s me, from a professional shoot in support of my acting career, taken a few months before I was paralyzed.
The photo brought up some very curious feelings — SO not the ones you might expect. And as I pieced them apart (publicly, on Facebook), one primary thing rose to the surface:
How quickly and utterly I turned my back on this life after I fell, not because I had to… but because I wanted to.
The fact is, falling was a profoundly spiritual experience for me, an opportunity I had consciously asked for just days before. It was the fulfillment of a desire and, because of that, I wasn’t falling in fear. I was falling in bliss.
Well, the FB thread exploded with likes and comments, and one particular conversation — with my friend Julia Kline — really caught my attention.
Julia’s had two primary “catastrophes” in life, one before she had a spiritual context for her life, and one after. The difference in how the two affected her was profound.
Please join us tomorrow for a very special episode of The Shero Show.
I’ll be sharing the story of my fall and the unforgettable magic that happened while I was midair, and Julia and I will have a public conversation about the way spirituality affects the experience — and healing process — of “catastrophe.”
If you’ve ever been stuck in the wake of a hardship…
If you’re longing to be deeply inspired…
This is the show for you.

I never in a million years expected the strength, courage, or resiliency I experienced post-injury. Those moments in the air truly changed everything. So please join us for The Shero Show… I promise, you won’t regret it.
