a writer and suicide loss survivor. I write words of hope and heart to help you through hard times. From poetry to practices, it’s all love. Take what you need. Even if life’s pretty good these days, there’s something here for you.
Art prints, meditations, books. I believe in making things with heart, things that last a lifetime and impact your life for the better. Thoughtful, helpful, a joy to give and receive. The way it should be.
True, wholesome, meaningful forgiveness doesn’t stop at saying a few magic words. But it could start there. Like every facet of healing, forgiveness is a process. If certain experiences in your past still weigh heavy on your soul, and you’re ready to confront them, then explore your own "things I forgive you for" list.
This poem is another take on the concept of healing "from" trauma. Whether it's loss or illness or some other excruciating pain you've endured, the truth is that some kinds of pain don't ever go away. You can't go back to the life you had before. You can't go back to "normal" - but you *can* lay claim to your new life.
But if you want to do more than just make it through, get my Hope Letters. It’s the kind of email that keeps you going, whether your life feels like a mess or a miracle today.
