Cultivating Your Resilience: An Invitation To Heal On Your Own Terms

Cultivating Your Resilience: An Invitation To Heal On Your Own Terms

A constant reminder to heal forward is the note I wrote to myself during those first few weeks of shifting, it sits over my writing desk, pinned to the wall with a piece of tape, it reads, “One of the things you miss in the wreckage is the shared fact of you.” Instructions to remind me that the story is always about sacrifice.

Healing From Our Mothers' Wounds: How I Learned to Bloom Beyond My Birth Garden

Like it or not, we mirror our surroundings. That doesn't mean that you aren't an individual with different perspectives, but it does mean that it's easy to fall into the pattern of your environment and upbringing.
