The Importance of Counting Our Blessings

Former fitness model Loni Willison spotted rummaging through dumpster for food – seeing her now is heartbreaking

It’s easy to forget the value of what we have and take things for granted. But when we lose something, we realize just how good it was. Happiness is subjective and relative. No matter how bad things may seem, there’s always someone out there wishing to be in your shoes.

Life is unpredictable, and circumstances can change in an instant. That’s why it’s important to pause and appreciate the things that bring us happiness, no matter how small they may be.

A Lesson From Loni Willison

Loni Willison, the ex-wife of former Baywatch star Jeremy Jackson, serves as a reminder of how fortunes can change. Once a popular swimsuit model, she was recently seen rummaging through a dumpster for food.

After her divorce from Jackson in 2014, Willison’s life took a downward spiral. Now homeless, she has been living in encampments in California for almost seven years. Pictures of Loni paint a stark contrast to her former glamorous self – she appears haggard, gaunt, and with missing teeth.

This tragic turn of events followed a tumultuous end to her marriage, where she experienced physical abuse and struggled with mental health and substance abuse issues.

The Struggle for Recovery

In an interview two years ago, Loni revealed the challenging road she had been on. It took her months to recover from the injuries sustained during the fight with her ex-husband. Losing her job as a plastic surgeon’s assistant and battling addiction, she ended up living on the streets.

Despite these hardships, Loni remains resilient. She finds ways to survive, even relying on food from bins and donations. Offers of help have come her way, but she has chosen to continue living on the streets.

It is my sincere hope that Loni receives the help she needs to get back on her feet. Witnessing someone’s downfall like this is truly heartbreaking. Please share this article to send love and prayers in Loni Willison’s direction.
