The Most Indulgent Path to Healing


In the tapestry of life, each of us encounters moments of struggle, pain, and uncertainty. Yet, amidst the challenges we face, there is a profound truth that remains: you deserve healing.

Healing is not merely the absence of pain, but a journey of self-discovery, growth, and renewal. It is a sacred process that allows us to reclaim our power, mend our wounds, and embrace the fullness of our being.


This week's affirmation is…

I Deserve Healing

Je Mérite La Guérison


Remember, dear {first name}, you deserve healing. You are worthy of love, compassion, and wholeness. As you embark on this journey of self-discovery and renewal, may you find the courage to embrace your truth, the strength to face your fears, and the resilience to emerge transformed.

Let's start this week with a love letter.

If you're anything like me, your achilles heel is not giving from your overflow, but pouring from your cup… this blog post is for us!

Dear Giver: You Deserve Healing, Too


This piece is for the people who have always lived with their hands, minds, and hearts wide open. The ones who learned, young, that it was better to care and be broken than always wonder what could have been.

This is for the people who, despite what the world said, weren’t scared of loving, being loved.

This is for you—and maybe for me, too. This is for all of us, because selfless, uninhibited love was inherent within each of us at some point.

Next, a great Mel Robbins podcast, with Lewis Howes

This is an episode about how to face the things that you’re scared to admit, or as in the case of my guest today, have never publicly spoken about.

Today, you and I are going on a healing journey so that you can put the past where it belongs: in the rearview mirror.


Get Serious About Healing Your Past


This conversation is “unguarded” and covers sensitive topics (particularly perhaps for the men in your life). So if this isn’t for you right now – please skip this episode.

I cannot wait to hear your favorite and most meaningful parts of this unforgettable conversation with Lewis.

Next, bonus podcasts, a playlist from one of the best blogs around…

From Therapy for Black Girls

Don’t Wait on “Healing” Before You Start “Living”

The journey of healing is real. You may feel like you’ve outgrown certain behaviors or people just for them to reappear. Perhaps, you’ve unlearned some of those unhealthy patterns that were weighing you down, but you recognize your new healthy behaviors bring up something else that you need to work through. I say this to say, healing is continuous. It’s a journey, not a marathon.

You deserve to do nice things for yourself, to be loved, to experience compassion. I wanted to highlight some ways you can begin healing and living, because what’s one without the other.
