We all experience adversity in some shape or form, but if we don’t acknowledge it, we stop ourselves from seeing the beauty in what it taught us
Diane Dewey never expected that she would meet her biological parents in her late 40s.
She was led to believe her entire life that they were both dead.
She immediately got the urge to know them more so she could learn more about her roots and confront past trauma and beliefs of not being enough after being abandoned by her biological parents.
Diane believes that it is only when we acknowledge a troubled past that we are then able to move on and heal for a better future.
In this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life podcast, Diane and I talk about what it was like finding out her biological parents were still alive, how we’re too caught up in the hustle and bustle that we forget to keep ourselves in check, and why intuition is one of our greatest gifts.
What You’ll Learn from this Episode:
- Why we need to slow down and listen to what our mind and heart are telling us
- The importance of taking a step back to look at situations from a distance
- How we can find beauty in any form of adversity
- And much more!

“When you start to really listen to yourself and listen to your intuition, you realize that you’ve got a built-in protector, a built-in guidance system.” – Diane Dewey
