from book –
Let your scars become lessons. Marinate in sorrow. Then, when prepared, climb your way out. You may end up with scrapes and bruises on your heart or pride, however, open to healing and adapt anew. It’s a process that basically leads the way towards surrender and then, one day you crack a smile. You give in to laughter. You allow humor to ease the heaviness. You break into song. You listen to birds at dawn. You stare at the stars at night. You walk the dog with a new spring in your step and smell the flowers, the fresh air and experience being alive again. Ultimately, we rely on gratitude to support our way to acceptance.
