Birthing Authenticity & Self-Love

What I thought would destroy me actually birthed my authenticity and self-love.

The month that we discovered that my husband had brain cancer, I thought it was the absolute end of my world. The seven years of what I called The Uninvited Journey was a personal hell that brought about the death of every hope and dream I had for my life, my marriage, and my family.

the seed used the rot and decay of my soul to nourish itself

BUT there was a seed that was buried with all of my hopes and dreams. And somehow that seed sprouted and it started to use the rot and decay of my soul to nourish itself and it began to grow. Eventually it grew to the point that I noticed it.

AND I DECIDED TO TEND TO IT.

Please read that again. I made a conscious decision to nourish that seedling and help it grow stronger and faster.

there is always a seed that is buried with the loss

You see, sometimes when we experience a huge loss in our lives, we think it’s the end. But I believe there is always a seed that is buried with the loss and if we become aware of it then we can help it grow and become a new hope, a new dream.

My seedling is my purpose. I am working hard every day to get to the root of my toxic emotions and replace them with healthy ones.

I have many tools available to help me do that; to live my best life NOW.

What can you do today to take a step towards discovering the seed inside your pain?
