mm-hmm, amen, aho.
When you find words that you relate to on such a level that you feel both the weight of their truth in your heart and the lightness they grant you in your cells.
Say it again:
I don’t believe healing has an end point. I don’t believe that if I just do enough things that I can clear my entire body of traumatic residue. I don’t even think I want that because what lives in me as a result of the trauma I have experienced also blooms with brilliance, wisdom, resolve and determination in a very alive way. It’s where all I create and offer originates. I don’t believe people have to have reached some peak healing place to be well. I believe there is wisdom in the wounds and sometimes we don’t need to rush each other out of them... I’m not trying to reach some high-vibe-all-the-time-abundance-abundance-abundance-no-trauma-depression-anxiety here place. I’m trying to find a real place. A true place. I’m trying to remember that the dark is just as bright as the light. -Jennifer Patterson.
