INTEGRITY MONTH: DAY 5: “We need to be mindful of where we are damaged, then invite our deeper soul in its night-world to heal this wounded tissue, renew us, and bring us back into unity. Creative expectation brings you healing and renewal. If you could trust your soul, you would receive every blessing you require. Life itself is the great sacrament through which we are wounded and healed. If we live everything, life will be faithful to us.”― John O’Donohue

THIS is it! The reason I do this work, year after year, month after month, day after day. Writing every day, inventorying, amending my life to learn to live like this.

Learning to “trust my soul” and live in the “great sacrament” every moment of every day! What a beautiful quote this is. I don’t remember it, specifically from the quotes I gathered for this month, but it made me have chills this morning because it resonates so powerfully for me.

And I really, really, really want to “live everything” for the rest of my days. Because life has been so very “faithful” to me already. How much greater could it be? I will let you know!

I am a therapist and counselor with long-term recovery from addictions and personal trauma. My writing reflects these experiences and the road I have traveled in 12-Step recovery settings, along with the work I have done for over 30 years in the field. My love of dolphins includes the stories of them being healers in places all over the world. I long to offer every broken spirit and body the experience of a healing hug. May my words and stories inform, uplift and delight your spirit and soothe your weary heart.
