I have travelled through a lot of pain and trauma in the last eight years. This has left me in a much better place then I was emotionally and physically. The type of grief I encountered was raw and unwieldy. Yet it came with a sense of calm. It broke through the lovelessness and opened up inside of me my love and healing gifts. To continue on down this healing pathway is a huge thing for me because it means that I love myself enough to keep on going.
