Why Tomb Raider Saved My Life.



“YOUR LIFE IS LIKE A VIDEO GAME SO START LIVING IT LIKE ONE.”

I never thought of myself as a heroine - I never thought I could be.


Growing up, I had always been fascinated by fairy tales and fantasy. The stories were always filled with magic, adventure, and epic love stories - I was hooked. That's how I got into gaming and the video game character, Lara Croft, Tomb Raider. Although, I looked up to her - I could never really relate to her. She was strong, beautiful, and out there raiding tombs & saving lives - I was nothing like that. After living most of my life with little to no self-confidence, living under the mercy of the opinions of others, and had no idea who the hell I was, Tomb Raider was a sense of aspiration and an escape from myself. When my marriage was over, I wanted to feel strong, beautiful and like I could conquer anything - that's when Tomb Raider brought me back to life.


Here are some takeaways from this video:

1. Life is like a video game complete with dragons and golden crowns. If life did not have challenges, we would never appreciate the good things that happen to us. You gotta take the good with the bad.

2. You need to get past the fire-breathing dragons to get to the next level. You're never going to get anywhere in life if you do not have courage. The courage to get out of that dead-end relationship, fight through bad days, step into uncomfortable situations, and push yourself out of the bed in the morning. No one ever succeeded without going through some hard shit in life. As my girl, Glennon Doyle says, "you can do hard things".

3. With each level you pass, you gain valuable gifts, trinkets, and knowledge. Each of these hella difficult situations (whether you want to believe it or not) always brings gifts and learnings. They lead you to your next job, next relationship, next adventure that is on your path. You just need to want to see it and be able to grab the opportunity when it appears.



How will you rewrite your love story?

It's time to become the heroine of your own epic adventure.
