The greatest gift that you can give yourself (and others) on the healing journey, is grace.
When we recognize we have something to heal within ourselves, we usually create expectations around it.
Most people expect that healing is a linear process. This means that you get hurt, sick, etc. and that you get better. In reality, the healing journey often looks like a roller coaster ride with many ups and downs. This is especially the case with chronic, long term conditions.
One day you can feel like your normal self and another, you may need to stay in bed all day.
This is where Grace comes in.
Grace for when you don't meet your own, and sometimes crazy expectations that you place on yourself.
Grace when you are so tired of being sick, that you are emotionally reactive and screaming and yelling at your loved ones.
Grace when you don't have any motivation to do anything expect brush your teeth and even sometimes, that's too much.
The healing journey is not about the perfect rituals, diet, practices, routines and when you take each supplement or pill. It's about celebrating yourself when show up and being gentle to yourself when you don't.
In the end, the ultimate healing journey is about remembering the truth: that you were born whole, worthy and complete.
