We are Thriving-Survivors who have overcome so much and deserve to be celebrated as the champions we are!
A few weeks ago, I celebrated myself during this dance therapy session with one of my dearest friends Karen. See Gigi dancing to Black Butterfly
The actual performance was not what made this exercise special. The actual maturation came afterwards when I shared the video on my social media outlets.
Why is that you ask?
Because, it had everything to do with development and acceptance, knowing it’s okay to allow people in.
This is one of the most challenging lessons I learned through my becoming process.
A slow, yet fiercely, steady process.
I have invited my trauma to many discussions while facing her head on.
Sometimes, she is strong, yet I show her I am determined.
Sometimes, she is brutal, yet I show her I am better.
And sometimes she shows up and I stare at her in the eye and she backs down.
This is when I know my fear story does not control my future.
