Book Description:

As a very shy, meek, and insecure little girl, Diane Mullins grew up the youngest of seven children in an abusive family. Never shown or taught how to love or be loved, Diane grew up with no self-confidence or self-esteem. Who knew that it would take a near-fatal accident to help her find her way to self-love and spiritual freedom? In Dying to Belong, Diane shares her story that begins at the scene of a body- and spirit-crushing ATV accident. Forced to ride out of the wilderness area herself, she arrived at the hospital to discover broken bones, ruptured organs, and a punctured lung. She was literally on the doorstep of death. During the excruciating process of physical healing, Diane began exploring a spiritual journey that led to loving, accepting, and respecting herself. Diane learned the empowering lesson that by changing her thoughts and feelings, she has been able to live a life of freedom from negativity and pain.

Diane Mullins gives readers an account of her life when she wasn’t her full self. Didn’t feel she could love or that anyone loved her. It was a lonely life when she didn’t feel she belonged. I admire this lady so much for actually telling the world of the dark places in her life. There are so many emotions flying around in the pages of this book. As I read Diane’s story, I was first laughing out loud at what she was telling, and then there were the times where tears couldn’t help but fall. This book made me take a deep look at my life, at myself because there are many times I have these same negative feelings. The same longings I have wondering if I indeed belong. I think everyone, especially women can identify with something in Diane’s story. I encourage you to pick up a copy of Dying to Belong to read for yourself. If you enjoy reading memoirs and biographies, you will enjoy reading this one

“Are you OK?” he asked.

“No,” I replied.

We just crashed

But there’s no way; that can’t be. I’ve never crashed before. This can’t be real; this cannot be happening. I lay there trying to figure out what just happened, trying to assess both the situation and my body. I wasn’t sure yet if I could even move; nope, I couldn’t. As a former gymnast and fitness competitor, I was very in tune with my body, so I knew when something was out of whack and something was definitely not right. Was I paralyzed? Could I move? I knew I couldn’t breathe very well. I knew that I was in excruciating pain and that I had just been in an ATV accident. I knew that I was alive, literally alive, but severely broken.

Alive? What does that really mean? Literally speaking, alive and breathing. Figuratively, it means full of energy, spunky, and spirited. But I haven’t always been alive, full of energy, or vivacious. That was something that definitely came later in life for me. As a kid, I just existed, no plans, no agenda, no goals; I functioned in survival mode most of my life. Very shy and introverted, I pretty much kept to myself, especially as a young child and adolescent.
