“If you heard this often from a person in your childhood:
A daily practice creates a ritual for ourselves that sends our subconscious the message: I matter. I care about myself. I can put myself first. I am capable. I am resilient. I am empowered to make choices in my own best interest. We've been conditioned in a society that says the answers are 'out there.' That seduces us into deeper levels of distraction + avoidance through social media, relationships, food, shopping, the list goes on + on. The answers are within us— they always have been. This is the warrior's journey. Those willing to do what most people avoid for a lifetime: looking within without running away.

As we head into our beautiful gift that is Sunday can I take the opportunity to tell you.. YOU are not too much. YOU are not being a drama queen.

Stay the path, trust the process, laugh at it Please join me in the sober dawn chorus as we say not today lady, not today. Susan Christina Creamer
True healing occurs when we are active participants.
True transformation occurs when we practice— when we commit to small daily promises. When we commit to showing up for ourselves. We've been conditioned in a medical model that teaches immediacy, quick fixes, + the “expert” model where we outsource our knowing to someone outside of ourselves.
