"Stories heal because we become whole through them. In the process of...discovering our story, we restore the parts of ourselves that have been scattered, hidden, suppressed, denied, distorted, forbidden."
I have been writing...a lot. Trying to reach far far back...deep into memories + heart to find all of my truths and put them down on paper. It's something I have been trying to do for a long, long...long time...but whenever it gets too painful (and it always does)...I get super busy (on purpose) and put it all away until my stories start calling me (and they always do). So...I am making a strong commitment to stay with it, to go deep inside all of the pains + angers + hurts and betrayals and...and just...sit with it. It's incredibly draining...and freeing... all at once. There is a sense of relief + power that comes from standing in our truth...because no matter how difficult the path, it is grounded in our humanity + quest for our true SELVES. I am also feeling incredibly grateful that I can come here to my blog and document my truth. Sometimes it looks and feels very ordinary but...it is a huge thing...to be able to be open + honest with ourSELVES + each other. To write all the bits + pieces or our lives and honor them. So thank you...dear readers (and friends) for giving me this safe space to be seen + heard + felt.
