From An Addict’s Wife To USOA Ms. Nevada 2021: The Debbie Freeman Story

 In this episode of Butterfly Kisses Podcast, Debbie Freeman shows you how to be grateful for your life and find happiness from within. Debbie is relatable because she has been through many of the same hardships that you may be going through. Debbie found herself again through the determination to overcome her sense of loss and despair.

After a difficult divorce, Debbie realized she needed to start living for herself. She went on a journey to lose 100lbs and entered the USOA Ms. Nevada Pageant 2021. At 51 years old, she took home the title of  USOA Ms. Nevada 2021!

Here are a few steps she followed to gain inner happiness—

  • Starting every day with a gratitude journal is a great way to get into the right frame of mind for the day.
  • It’s important not to let fear get in the way of doing something new or exciting.
  • Finding happiness from within is more important.

Starting every day with a gratitude journal is a great way to get into the right frame of mind for the day.

The first step to achieving your goals is to have a desire for what you want to achieve. This desire must be strong enough to overcome any obstacles you may face. For Debbie Freeman, her desire to be a role model for her children was strong enough to overcome the obstacles in her life.

It’s important not to let fear get in the way of doing something new or exciting.

Getting outside our comfort zone and doing something new creates a different reality for us. We all experience fear, but what we do with that fear matters. Do you let fear stop you from creating the life you desire, or do you let it fuel you to keep moving?

Finding happiness from within is more important.

Debbie looked to her husband for inner beauty. It wasn’t until he told her he no longer loved her that she knew she needed to find love from within. We can look for people or situations outside ourselves for happiness, but it will never work. Going within and truly experiencing our authentic selves is the only way to experience true happiness.

Debbie Freeman, a 51-year-old mother of two, decided she desired to be an inspiring role model for her children. She lost the weight that once made her feel safe, stepped outside her comfort zone, and won USOA Ms. Nevada 2021. Debbie is an inspiration to all women, especially those who are going through any kind of hardship in their lives.

I’d love to hear your story about inner happiness.
