Candace Vanice Story — We all have struggles in our life and most of us hide this from the rest of the world so we can put on an illusion of strength, when in fact we become stronger by sharing with others. This is the reason why I created the YoGo Workout DVD and wanted to share my story so others may feel a little less alone and realize there is hope and people who care about them.
I will just briefly talk about myself; I grew up in a good home full of love, but not one without its challenges. It was an alcoholic home, and I remember my childhood being sad. I was overweight as a child and was picked on and never really ever felt that I was pretty. I don’t remember ever being truly happy until just these last couple of years.
I battled with depression and other social problems and at one time even tried to commit suicide. I began taking antidepressants and they worked at first, but over time they became ineffective. The doctor changed my dosage and it worked again for a while and then it stopped. I decided that this was not the solution and sought out other ways of treating my depression.
About five years ago, at the urging of my Mother, I went to see a holistic doctor who prescribed me supplements that contained amino acids. The doctor explained to me how this treatment would actually bring my brain back into balance and not just mask the problem like so many traditional treatments. Within six months I was depression free and have not gone back to prescriptions drugs since.
Because I was stronger emotionally, I was able to take on the task of emotional healing and began with alternative treatments like Reiki and Acupuncture. I then I sought out educational programs. I started with attending The Landmark Forum and in one weekend had cleared an extraordinary amount of emotional baggage. I have continued my educational journey by reading many self-help books and listening to many seminars and CD’s to advance my knowledge. Many of these resources are listed on the Happy Resources page.
I have come to realize that life is truly precious and that when you look for the love and beauty in everything we all have so much to live for. I try look for the good in everything even when faced with obstacles that come in my way. This switch in outlook has literally changed my life and it can change yours. You can learn more about how to do this in the bonus section of the YoGo Workout DVD. You deserve a life full of fun and happiness. Happiness is a choice so choose to make the change today. Namaste.
I would love to know about your success story in overcoming depression. Please email me. Your story could be the one that helps someone else have a life of happiness!
