If you’ve been struggling with grief, trauma, or with your self-esteem and you’ve had a hard time healing through it, this episode will definitely provide insight and wisdom for you to heal and get to the other side.

Today I’ve got my beautiful friend, Danny Johnson, aka Danny-J, award-winning entrepreneur, keynote speaker, storyteller and co-host of The Best Life Podcast. Danny has been through the ringer and today she openly shares her personal struggles and all the traumas and harsh challenges she’s endured. It’s crazy when you hear how much Danny’s been through from being molested, to being a suicidal and pregnant teen that resulted in an adoption, to bankruptcy, to a bacterial infection that paralyzed her for months and more.

Danny also shares her beautiful processes of healing and how she’s managed to truly come through for herself, and surrender to trust and forgiveness.  She shares how to rewrite your story and go from being a victim to a victor in your life.

You know, we don’t always choose the circumstances in our life. The challenging circumstances that we experience are there to teach us, to grow us and to evolve our consciousness if we’re willing to rise. I know you’re gonna be inspired as you hear Danny’s rise through all of the challenges she went through to remind you that you can do it too.
