“We don’t want to be uncomfortable. We want a quick and dirty “how-to” list for happiness. I don’t fit that bill. Never have. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to skip over the hard stuff, but it just doesn’t work. We don’t change, we don’t grow, and we don’t move forward without the work. If we really want to live a joyful, connected, and meaningful life, we must talk about things that get in the way.”
Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are
For the month of October, I will be writing every day on a topic of my own choosing, 31 days of Healing in Him (under the Nester category: Inspirational & Faith).
I don't pretend to have healing figured out. But what I have learned, through my own journey of healing, I will share with you here. My hope is that what you read here will encourage you to begin or continue the brave work of healing in him.
This is my story. But it also may be yours. Thank you for walking with me.
