Twenty years ago, I skipped to immediate gratitude and optimism when I was diagnosed with cancer. I wasn’t going to die. Yay. However, I was sick and traumatized, and did not address that reality. For the next fifteen years, I suffered greatly at the mercy of the ignored and bottled pain, anger and sadness. Post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and depression ruled my life. Only when I began to look at the darkness within and gave it space to breathe did I pave a way to feeling at home in my {internal/external} body. I found freedom through ownership of the full spectrum of emotions that I experience as a human. I learned there is no quick “past go and get $200” solution to deeply felt peace if I fail to see the dark and the light. Now, twenty years later, I have infinite gratitude for all of my scars, but that love was hard-earned. The story behind each and every one of them has made me who I am today. Last Cuts speak to owning the truth of each experience we have, and vulnerably and honestly seeing it through until it sets us free. Our {internal/external} scars become the most beautiful reflections of who we are. The road to embodiment is not always direct. What do you need to let go of to open to greater freedom? What do you need to own to allow deeper beauty? What do you need to change to create more peace? #ownyourscars
