Accident and Icebergs

I have arrived in one of my heart homes, Newfoundland. I will be here for 3 months. First thing I wanted to do was travel and see the icebergs. They are just amazing.

Before I left Toronto I was in horrific car accident on a major highway. A massive 18 wheeler truck caught my mirror in his. It was very freaky. I was dragged across the highway and back, before I hit the barrier. My airbags deployed, front of car fell off as well as the passenger door. As I was sailing across the highway, my only thought was if this car rolls over I am dead, so I pulled my seat belt tighter, which I don’t think made any sense, but at that point I was terrified!

The car was totalled and I have massive bruising, a cracked rib and foggy vision in one eye, but I am very lucky to walk from this. As time goes on more things happen to my body, which I am told is trauma.

I am very lucky to be here with my good friends Peggy and Denise, who yell at me in a nice way, when I am attempting too much. The other interesting thing was that it took about 10 minutes before any cars stopped and asked if I was ok and called 911. I think that says something about our society, cars just kept buzzing by.

The Police, Medics and Fireman came very fast after that. I am fine, it will just take little time.

Enjoy the Iceberg pictures!

About Betty Steinhauer

Betty Steinhauer was born in England and raised in Toronto, Canada. Even as a young mother, Betty was active in the community sitting on a number of boards and lending her expertise to various public organizations. In 1983, she founded Betty Steinhauer & Associates Ltd. a consulting firm where, for twenty-five years, she used her unique abilities to act as a catalyst, facilitator and advisor to both the private and public sectors, in forging relationships between organizations and/or individuals for mutually advantageous outcomes. For many years, Betty travelled widely in out-of-the-way areas of the world. As she travelled, the idea for The People Bridge Charitable Foundation was formed. The People Bridge was registered as a Canadian charity in 1997. The mandate of the Foundation was to facilitate important changes in the lives of ordinary people through small-scale charitable projects. Betty has now retired the Foundation that, during its lifetime, undertook over 100 projects worldwide, mostly in conjunction with organizations already working in the target area. Betty’s experience and expertise in business, along with the advice and assistance she receives from colleagues around the globe, give her a unique ability to spot the need and understand how it can be met. Betty has the unusual combination of an entrepreneur’s abilities and an intrinsic understanding of people. Betty has visited India seventeen times in the past twenty years to pursue her spiritual journey. She has frequently been a guest of the Brahma Kumaris and the World Spiritual University to study meditation and further her own spiritual life. Betty is currently active with the Steering Committee of the Spirit of Humanity Forum, in Reykjavik, Iceland. This is an annual Forum that, it is felt, will become to the spiritual world what the Davos Forum is to the financial world. Betty makes her home in Toronto, and has published her memoir “My Way”. She began her Nomadic Internship in the summer of 2013.

    You are one amazing woman, Betty! I think the forces of the universe were pulling for you to survive this horrific accident, as you have a lot of travelling and writing and sharing yet to do. Please don’t hurry yourself in the healing process, though; remember the tortoise that got to its goal just fine by taking a little longer.

    Betty, do take care of yourself. It sounds like a truly terrifying experience for sure. It was great to see you. I just finished My Way and found it fascinating. I feel so lucky to have worked with you along the way.
