One of the most scariest thing in life,is when you come to the realization that the only thing that can save you,is…yourself”

-Demi Locate

“It is also the most empowering”

-Cindy Lee Lothian-

Sometimes in the darkest of nights, you see more clearly than ever before.

Standing alone in the face of adversity you have no option but to stand strong. When there is no safety net to catch you, that is when your true inner strength shines.

When a doctor cannot help you, when a loved one leaves or dies, who is left?

You are.

You are all you need to manifest what it is you want in this journey we call life.

What is the lesson you are being called to learn?

I was scared when I found out that my doctor was not God and could not wave a magic wand.

i was lost when my marriage ended and the person I thought was going to save me from  my nightmare. left.

I was shattered when my mother unexpectedly left this world, her arms always being my ultimate safety net.

“On that glad night,in secret, for no one saw me,

nor did I look at anything,

with no other light or guide

than the one that burned in my heart.”

-Poetry of St. John of the Cross-

I have journeyed this dark night of the soul and have emerged with clairity and vision.

In the midst of change and endings, I found myself. I found a strength I did not know I had. I found happiness.

I found acceptance.

What is it in your life that is calling you to see and to learn?

Do not cower in fear of change.

Face your fears and insecurities with an honest heart.

In this dance, you will find a beautiful, strong you.

You are in there, set yourself free.

    Yes, this IS the absolute truth when all is said and done. This pain opens doors that we did not know even existed. Like a beating fist it is relentless until the strength in our own hearts lets it in with acceptance. Only then do these unknown parts of our true selves come to light.
    And oh but how they shine.
