Stories That Inspire Us / The Author Series, welcomed to today’s podcast, Tuesday, February 28, 2023, Krystal Casey. Krystal is a Speaker, Empowerment Coach and a co-author of the Book: Shattering The Stigma of Single Motherhood written by Dr. Jill Zambon along with Krystal and her other amazing co-authors!
Krystal shared that she is a woman with a history of trauma and motherhood unlocked a portal of pain she didn’t realize existed within. Years of traditional treatment proved unsuccessful, so she began searching for a natural alternative of healing, which led her to yoga.
Inspired by the positive changes she experienced, Krystal wanted to support women with similar struggles. So, in 2018 she opened a studio and spent the next few years learning to find balance both on and off the mat. It was a wonderfully chaotic and heady time, but overnight it all came crashing down.
Krystal was blindsided and within (6) weeks, she had lost her husband and the father of her children. She was beyond shattered but being now a single Mom with 5 children watching, she knew she couldn’t give up.
Krystal shared on a very personal level that “things” went back to normal but then it wasn’t. She candidly shared that she was struck down emotionally and asked for help and guidance. She checked herself into a facility where she remained for 11 days while her Mom took care of her children.
What strikes me is how raw and authentic Krystal’s story has evolved. Having a routine was proactive and essential for her emotional stability and well-being and additionally she shared how important it was and still is to support herself with self-care. Organic as it may be from day-to-day, it works and it certainly shows that it does!
It’s important to be heard and Krystal emphasizes that every woman's voice has the opportunity to do just that. It can be scary to do so but it’s important for to make a mind shift that helps her to break the cycles. It’s clear that she has a plan and ironically her glass ceiling continues to expand for there are many opportunities for growth yet to be discovered! What sticks out to me is her willingness to share that empowerment with others!
