Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you

Being a survivor of domestic violence is not something that one can necessarily talk about at the dinner table. It’s a dirty secret that is socially unacceptable. Part of the healing process is the ability to speak about your experiences. The more you talk…

Dear Heart, Thank you for being you!

Dear Heart, Thank you for being so strong. This rewiring process has been filled with some intense challenges. I know that you get scared but I hope you know how proud I am of you. There is tremendous beauty in this entire healing process….

Awareness Saved My Life

I’m a 30 something-year-old Chitalian-American that has spent the last decade living and working in Asia. I’m rarely without some sort of stretch goal. This current chapter is addressing 13 years of emotional & mental abuse from a family member. Mental wellness is close…

Healing is a painful process, just breathe and continue building

Worth a look. Worth a comparison. Rather than write letters of gratitude. I looked inward. I searched for my reaction or response. I wanted to compare notes. I needed to see IF I was actually progressing. I needed to validate if I am still…

Reiki certified. Different paths, same results.

Day 15. Freewriting. I have been working on a few certificates. The newest skill that perfectly compliments my writing journey, is Reiki. I know many ways to maintain the harmony of my mind, body, spirit. This Reiki certificate is formalizing what I’ve basically been…
