We are all survivors of something. The human condition is such that we love, we live, and at times we hurt. Some of us have pin prick wounds that may sting for a little, but are easily healed and fade from memory. Others of us are wounded so deeply that we carry the scars of those wounds for life.
This shared experience gives us a common ground. We can heal, we can live lives of value, we can help others to find the same healing, and we can find love. Love for ourselves, love for each other, and love of life. We can find beauty in our lives, despite the wounds. We can connect with each other over those things that we have in common.
And it is
The commonality of living and being wounded by the world, which can be a hard place at times, gives us the opportunity to connect with others through shared experiences of our pasts. This then becomes another opportunity to use those connection with others, to create a space for beauty, love, and compassion. Where we embrace and celebrate that which we share. We open ourselves up to speak truthfully of our wounds, of our hopes, our loves, and our dreams. Through this others can see us, can know us, and can find us. We have courage. For we can provide the place of healing that so many need.
This is where we in Rebel Thriver meet. In the commonality of love, peace, healing, compassion, and the beauty of the spirit.
It is and has always been my journey home.
These beliefs that I hold for this Rebel Thriver space have shaped my personal mantra.
“I have the courage to speak my truth.
To seek and embrace healing.
To love myself and others.
To find beauty in living.
To open myself to connections.
To learn and share my knowledge.”
