" The hardest thing you may have to do for your recovery (healing) is to stay close to your own heart, know your own love and especially your own truth." - Andrea 'Find Your Voice Project: A Journey Towards Healing
It takes many different forms for many people. You are the only one that can define healing for yourself. What does it look like for you on your journey? When was there a time in your life where you were being challenged by healing?
Was it from physical health, mental health, spiritual health or just a personal healing that no one else can describe for you?
Have you run away from healing afraid to do the hard work of looking within one's self? What can healing from your struggles bring you other than peace? Can you consider that healing can bring you gratitude?
When it comes down to answering this question the reality is that you have to first embrace healing for what it is for you? These questions are only questions that you can answer on your own personal journey. Will you have the courage to take the step to stop, breathe and consider for a moment the answers to these questions that can bring your journey to life in ways you never expected?
I dare you!

Are we worthy? Think about that for a moment?
Am I worthy?
It is likely something you battle within any given situation in a day often, but never actually voice. Whether we are chosen for a specific position at work or school, we can doubt our worthiness. If goodness falls into our lives, do you doubt it? It is human nature at its best.
In many cases of healing, people often ask ‘Am I worthy?’ Their shame and wounds end up getting the better of them and they doubt such deserving healing. But in the end the truth is that we are all worthy, no matter what path we have walked in our life.
Take that in.
Yes, we all have faults. Yes, we all have weaknesses. Yes, we all struggle. But these common denominators do not define our worthiness.
When we embrace our worthiness TODAY, we allow ourselves to keep going tomorrow. When we exclaim out loud, ‘I am worthy!’ We own our journey, negatives and positives. Thus, allowing for us to grow, learn, strive and become who we are meant to be.

I feel like we hear this term quite often.
Everyone is trying to distract us from the tragedy surrounding our world. But, I am asking, what is the harm instead to look at those tragedies and see the beauty?
My simple, or not so simple, challenge today is to see the beauty in the endless tragedy we are seeing daily.
See the beauty in that which is not always beautiful.
See the beauty in the many political trials in the arena.
See the beauty in the neighbor who isn't always being neighborly.
See the beauty in the ugliness of the world's problems playing out.
When you take time to see something that you would not otherwise take your time on, you will be surprised by the gifts received. You will receive moments of growth, rather than the negativity that is trying to infest our world. You will be a part of the change.
Allow this to fill your day.

Sometimes your greatest power is your silence.
Is your voice important? Absolutely!
But what can be even more powerful and as important is not engaging in someone who doesn’t respect your value.
That is truly valuing YOU!
