When I was 18, I almost lost my life. I was in a horrific car accident that involved 9 people, and only 2 survived. I had 5 of my front teeth knocked out, my forehead was split wide open, and my brain was bleeding. Not only did I have the physical injuries, but I also lost my husband. We were 19 days away from our one year anniversary. We were hit by a drunk driver, so I was determined to turn my situation around. I teamed up with Mothers Against Drunk Driving, several other organizations, and local high schools. I knew God had left me here for a reason, and I wanted to make certain I accomplished His will. I then met my now husband, Kevin, who was (and still is) extremely supportive. He stood behind me and went to all of my speaking engagements. After awhile, I felt it was time to leave the tragedy behind, and Kevin and I moved on with our lives. I decided I could make a difference in this world through my career. Oh, and let me tell you, I was bound and determined that all my efforts each day made a difference. I knew I would not completely set the world on fire by myself, but I knew I was satisfied knowing I made whatever difference Terri Wright could make. I have always tried to be successful in my professional endeavors, so a lot of time was devoted to my career.
My husband and I decided to have a family, and we were blessed with two beautiful girls. The more time passed, the more my career took away from my family. With little time for my family and for myself, my health began to suffer. It was small at first, but things gradually progressed. Weight gain, gallbladder disease, pre-diabetic conditions, thyroid disease….. You get the picture. In September 2015, I found out I had a calcified brain aneurysm, which was a result from the car accident years ago. The neurosurgeon said I only had a 50/50 chance to live with or without the surgery because of the size and location. This thing was massive! It was 19 mm in diameter, which is considered huge. I knew God was going to get me through the surgery with flying colors because He gave me a sense of peace throughout the process. The girls were only 5 and 6 at the time, but God saw me through through that difficult time. It was tough on Kevin and the girls, but we all persevered. Once I returned to work, I realized my lifestyle was not in-line with my priorities in life. I am an analyst by nature. I began to notice the pain my friends at work were also feeling. I watched so many of my friends descend into pain, heartache, relationship strain and stress. The health of many friends all around me was deteriorating. It broke my heart, but there was nothing I could do but lend an ear and provide the best Godly advice possible. Then it hit me, we are all living in a fast-paced, broken world, and we do not have the time to sit back and assess our absolute priorities in life. What is our ultimate destination? Well, I have certainly learned a lot, and I want to help others realize what’s important and how to recognize what’s important! I have the methodical steps, tools, and techniques to get you back on track to living the free, healthy lifestyle of your dreams.
Much Love and Blessings,
