Episode 73 – Ami Summers, The healing power of creativity

“Living life on my terms is when I see beauty and appreciation in everything”

Ami Summers had always run her business in the background while having a corporate career but over the past 18 months, she’s taken a leap of faith that changed all that.

Why?

At 38 weeks pregnant she lost her baby girl, then she had two miscarriages…all within six months.

Ami talks about how after the loss of her third baby she realised that she just needed to stop. Not stop doing things but stop her ‘usual way’ of doing things. And to give herself some space to feel the magnitude of what she’d been through.

However, it wasn’t until she woke up from a coma, with a premature baby boy in her arms that she had an epiphany about what was really important to her. That didn’t stop her, however, 3 months later after significant surgery, she was back at work and back into her regular routine.

Ami recalls the exact moment she made the decision to change her life for good. She was on a 4-hour conference call at 7 am on a Saturday morning, sitting in her dressing gown on the couch, her boobs were full of milk and she could her baby screaming in the other room.

Ami’s is a heart-warming story of loss and resilience and in this episode, she tells us how significant events have the capacity to catapult us into taking a leap of faith.

In this episode Ami shares:

  • How easy it is to lose sight of your personal vision when you’re busy making other people’s visions happen
  • How significant life events can catapult you to taking leaps of faith you never thought possible
  • Why sharing our experiences gives others permission to share theirs and leads us to heal
