I think the first step to sending it on its way is being willing to look it square in the eye. This was so beautifully written, and I know will touch many who battle depression. Big love to you!
This is phenomenal, Laura. I think it's my favorite thing you've written, though possibly because I've been stewing on the same thing. You cannot truly love yourself and find peace unless you embrace all of it—the shadow as much as the light. Love you!
This was specifically in reaction to the way the Fifty Shades of Grey ilk has taken the "inner goddess" concept, and not about Divine Femininity, which I am a strong believer in embracing and connecting with. When I wrote this, there were many articles coming out making reference to the "inner goddess" as portrayed in that series, and it was a bit disheartening. Thank you for your thoughts!
I think this goes right along with #1, but learn anything new...new language, new style of dance, pottery, anything! The people that are the happiest into old age are usually the ones that keep working and learning new things. :)

Absolutely love this! I think it can be so much harder to make this a priority when we work for ourselves, because we don't have the built in framework that includes downtime and self-care. Thanks, Jeanne!
I love this, Dana! Never stop dreaming. <3
This is a keeper. So helpful and so timely for me, Bo. Thanks!
