Welcome to High Heal Diaries — a healing community to share and heal from personal trauma.
Created by Natalie Wilson, a three-time cancer survivor, life coach and motivational speaker, High Heal Diaries is an open diary where anyone is welcome to share their own personal trauma and path to grief recovery, without fear of judgment or ridicule. Within High Heal Diaries, Natalie has created a healing community, or online support group, where people are comfortable to share their stories of personal trauma and grief recovery and also be inspired by others.
Natalie chose to share her own story, High Heal Diaries, because a diary is unbiased. It doesn’t judge or talk back. High Heal Diaries is a safe place to share your experiences, thoughts and feelings, much like a support group. We can be each other’s personal diaries. Within this healing community, we can rise above our personal trauma without shame and share our path to grief recovery and healing. We all have a story to tell. One person’s struggle and pain is no less than another’s. High Heal Diaries is here to give everyone the same opportunity to share their personal trauma and story of grief recovery.
High Heal Diaries is an online ‘one stop shop’ support group for people dealing with their own personal struggles — emotional or physical. It’s a safe place where they can share their story (diary) in a non-judgmental and unbiased forum. Understanding through experience is our main crutch, and our motive is to listen and support others as others have done for us.
As a cancer survivor, motivational speaker and Certified Coach Practitioner (life coach), Natalie has experienced the many stages of healing. She is now in one of the happiest places in her life. A place where she gives back and wants to inspire others to see the light at the end of the tunnel. That means share their trauma and discover a path to heal. High Heal Diaries provides a safe place to do that.
In Natalie’s words, “Move it along SISTA.”
Join Natalie and the High Heal Diaries healing community as they share their diaries – stories of triumph to a more positive, spiritual, and healthier life. And if you haven’t gotten to that place yet, following Natalie and others on High Heal Diaries, will certainly inspire you to get there.
The motto of High Heal Diaries is so fitting.
“Inspiring women, one story at a time.”
Natalie adds, High Heal Diaries is not just for women. It’s for all of us, regardless of who we are, where we come from, or what we’ve been through. Trauma is trauma. Grief is grief. But, by sharing our personal diary with the High Heal Diaries community, we can heal together. One story at a time.
Natalie firmly believes that taking pride in how you feel on the outside will truly make a difference in how you feel on the inside. “I’ve had twenty-two surgeries and within a week or so after each one, no one would ever know what I had just been through…I’d just freshen up, do my hair and throw on a little bit of lipstick, and no one was the wiser unless I shared my story.”
Natalie's message to other cancer patients
“My message to other cancer patients, breast or other, is to be well with the journey God has put them on. Once you are content with your life‘s journey, as difficult as it may be, you will get to the end of that journey and be at a better place to help yourself and others. No matter how hard your days may be, the pain will not last forever. I am a firm believer that God only gives you as much as you can handle.
I urge people that are going through treatment or recovery, to get involved with other patients that are going through the same thing so that they know that they are not alone.
I also believe in giving back, as so many people have given their time and to me. Currently, my cause helps women that are going through breast cancer treatment and that are suffering a slight financial hardship, by offering them financial support with utilities, medical expenses, transportation to treatment, children’s activities, care packages, or just simply a day at the spa to take their mind off of what they were dealing with, even just for a day.”
