Chayim (Hebrew) = Life
On occasion, we live with painful memories, regrets, unfulfilled dreams, confusion, abandonment, compulsions, isolation, loss and grief, poor self-image, aspects of ourselves we struggle to understand or accept, and more. If you ever experience any of these emotions, remember that you are human. Hurting is part of the human experience.
Transformation and healing are also part of the human experience. Oftentimes, personal growth requires that we recognize and accept these uncomfortable feelings. When we begin to discover, challenge, and deconstruct negative beliefs we have about ourselves, we realize that we are more powerful than these emotions and that those narratives are not true. They were never true. As we uncover these false beliefs about ourselves, our perception of the world also begins to shift.
The journey from suffering to freedom and joy is also a part of the human experience. We ought to be happy and live in harmony; not just for ourselves but for the whole world. Your journey of courage, struggle, self-exploration, and transformation touches and inspires others and, as a result, the world can be a better place for all of us.
When we live with such purposeful and intentional outlook, when we stand on our own feet with gratitude, hope, patience, and self-compassion, then we begin to heal. We experience life like never before. Right here. Right now.
