Soaring feels awkward after a season or lifetime of hiding. Trying to return to the cocoon is not a real option. Shine and soar!

Self-awareness is a supreme gift, a treasure as precious as life. This is what makes us human. But it comes with a costly price: the wound of mortality. Our existence is forever shadowed by the knowledge that we will grow, blossom, and, inevitably, diminish and die.

"Meet Julia Butterfly Hill. She climbed a giant Redwood-280ft. She stayed up there alone for 2 years, in raging winter storms, surviving many challenges, physical & mental. She saved the whole forest. Never think that YOU a single person can not make a difference" @ hilltopgina

"A human being would certainly not grow to be seventy or eighty years old if this longevity had no meaning for the species. The afternoon of human life must also have a significance of its own and cannot be merely a pitiful appendage to life’s morning."

When we break through the shame and begin to tell our story, we discover many have walked a similar path. You’re not alone. I hope you find safe spaces to share truth. There’s healing there.

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank some people who encouraged and supported me to self-publish and then publish WWBE and sell 10,450 copies in the first 8 weeks. Thread...

We are not only healing from what we’ve directly experienced but also the unhealed wounds of those who raised us. Interrupting these cycles is difficult, sacred work.

Let’s stop saying some people are ‘hard to engage’. That’s rubbish. Instead, let’s accept that many systems & services are hard to trust, and for good reason. Fix that.

When you come out of toxic spaces, you discover the very things you were rejected for are actually appreciated.

Give thanks for spaces that don’t require masks or performance. Exit the stage and find real friends.

The inside info is that yourself as 'just little me' who 'came into this world' and lives temporarily in a bag of skin is a hoax and a fake. The fact is that because no one thing or feature of this universe is separable from the whole, the only real You, or Self, is the whole.

Remember when your heart was broken. Appetite gone. Sleep gone. Eyes vacant. Look at you now. It’s so good to see you outlasted that season.

Joyful, healthy, Happy Birthday to His Holiness the Dalai Lama! 🎉 He is an inspiration and a lamp, a beacon of understanding and compassion that lights the world. He treats everyone with interest, love and respect. May he live long and his blessings spread far and wide.

I stand against the pathologisation and medication of traumatised women and girls who have been subjected to male violence. They are not mad, or mentally ill. Their trauma is natural, justified, rational and valid. We need to stop diagnosing them with psychiatric disorders.

Love this. 💜 Where therapy is not accessible or appropriate I know makes me feel clearer like this too.
