"How long you're down depends on how you rise, life has a meaning, so open your eyes." - Freedom (part 2) by The Beautiful Girls ft. Mason Jennings
These quotes have been particularly inspiring to me lately... It's been a while since I've written or shared anything, retreating into a virtual silence while I've delved into the depths and darkness of my own reality. Forced into facing some of my deepest fears, such as heartbreak, confusion, and basic needs of survival, in one afternoon, all my plans went into flames, like the fire implied before the Phoenix could rise from the ashes. Through the difficult times, I've been continuously learning and growing, boosted by the love, support, and inspiration of some of the wonderful healers around me, while simultaneously receiving words of encouragement from those who have expressed the ways in which I've helped them both knowingly and unknowingly. Ultimately, when people ask why I have my website, and why I write, the biggest reason is that I hope somewhere, somehow, I've been able to inspire and encourage someone else out there, whether it's through sharing my struggles, bringing laughter to someone's day, or reminding someone that they are not alone, and there is a way. Now as the dust settles like ashes from the fire, I find myself regaining my strength, recommitting to my path, tuning into my light, and getting ready to share more of my stories and writing. With each day, I'm more excited for the possibilities that my future holds And soon, I will rise, like a Phoenix from the ashes...
