“We can be the mirror, where other women can see their power”

Our scars are our life diploma. My name is Ruthy Adorno and I am a Speaker, Coach and Professor. I grew up in a small beautiful town in Puerto Rico, surrounded by family and friends from my childhood. I decided to accept a challenge and move to the United States accepting a job offer.

I felt confidence, power and happy. What could go wrong? I was the shark in the ocean, I felt confidence about my experience, expertise, I will teach in Spanish (my language) and my salary will increase. Is this a dream? Everything was perfect (well, that was my thought). The first 3 months I moved, I lost weight, my brain couldn’t listen to any other language, other than Spanish, without a headache. My health was decreasing and my marriage was going downhill. Ok, not that perfect of a dream anymore.

For months, I put myself in a victim position. I wanted to find what was responsible for my pain. I wanted to find the person who lied and showed me the perfect life that now was an illusion. I was struggling with the language, getting a divorce, having a heart ablation, financial problems. What else?

One day I realize it was me and I started fighting with myself. No one noticed, but I used to hate myself for the decisions I made. I felt guilty, unworthy and fearful.

I started to seek help in books, workshops, and events. That’s why I love One Woman, empowering women to transform the world. When I realized everything works for me and not against me, my whole life change. I began to look at the situations as opportunities to grow, I wake up every day with joy and am grateful. People can scream and fight but those external situations don’t have to affect me. I am in control of my feelings, I am in charge of my life. I am the one who will decide if I fight one more time or give up.

When you make the decision to show your scars, feel proud, feel enough. The universe will open doors for you and other women can see hope in you. Showing our scars is the best way to show other women that they can overcome too. More than my diplomas, showing my pain, my insecurities, my divorce, my financial situations and how I overcome is a way to embrace women and tell them: “I know how you feel, you are not alone, I’m here for you and you will overcome”.

Spread Your Shine LLC specializes in giving hope, inspiring and empowering women from all over the world. Our diplomas are a way to prove we reach that goal and our scars are the way we prove we fight and we always win.

I send you a big hug and many blessings, you will overcome.
