As I write from my desk at The Healing Center, a non-profit that provides free counseling services for survivors of sexual violence, I want to take a brief look back and share my thoughts for this blog: My words here focus on healing from past struggles and transforming and surviving everyday life.
From time to time I may mention a bit about The Healing Center’s services, upcoming events and stories that strike me from the news, but my mission here is to give you a dose of inspiration, calming words to carry you through the day and tips I compile from my own mind and others about how to walk your path in peace.
I chose to go in this direction because I really feel that before our doors open and after they close for the night, I want clients, allies, donors and everyone else to know they are loved, appreciated and thought about even if they may not physically sit in our waiting room.
All of us, no matter where we come from or what we have endured, are survivors. We survive tragedy, heartbreak, addictions, trauma and all the trials and tribulations that we stumble upon each day. I welcome all your thoughts and dreams, no matter how big or small and hope you can use this blog as a resource to cushion your falls and bring you to a state of happiness and balance.
Where do you go to breathe?
