Finding Your Way …

Emotional healing can be rest, it can be careful reflection. It can be self-care, confrontation, silence, therapy, exercise and many other things. It’s as individual as we are. There’s no right way to do it, no set timeframe, it’s not even linear. How we piece ourselves back together looks and feels different for everyone — but it is a quiet teacher that will show us all the way forward.

Blossom & Bloom

What we say can have a tremendous impact. Words lead to beliefs. Beliefs lead to action. Action leads to change. And change leads to liberation. How we speak to ourselves, the way we talk to others and the thoughts and utterances that we deliver into the world have power.

Midnight

Sometimes the quiet of midnight, even when you can't sleep, can be where you get moments to rest and quiet your mind. Take some time to breathe in and exhale. Sit with the knowledge that tomorrow brings the opportunity of a fresh start, renewed energy or a clearer perspective.

Listen When You Need It Most …

Anxiety, stress, depression or grief sometimes would have you believe that the weight of what you are holding is too much to carry, that you will break if you dare to begin to release what sits so heavy on your soul.

A Reminder …

Rest your heart for a while, be kind to yourself. Let yourself feel enough to remember, enough to learn, but never too much for it to be so heavy it’s all you can carry. Take your time, take a breath, and hold on to what will come …

Life can be a storm you can see coming that you get to prepare for or it can be a sudden deluge that takes you by surprise and leaves you scrambling for cover. It can be clouds that are heavy and dark with ominous energy or it can be clear, fresh air with the promise of new sunshine.

TN Poetry | Healing

Many different life events, challenges or changes can carry an emotional weight that’s difficult to process. Working through something that’s created a loss in our lives can be nuanced, complex and fluid. There is no correct way to be or timetable to work from when experiencing something that requires acceptance or healing.

TN Poetry | Kindness

Life can be heavy. It can weigh us down. There are times when we cannot hide the sting of hot tears or anger, desperation, anxiety or depression. We sometimes feel the fight is waning or that we might reach the end of being able to hold on.
