Healing is a journey

of thousand small steps.

It involves an opening,

a willingness to be vulnerable.

Then it needs the courage

to look, to explore,

to accept the past and the present,

even when that feels painful.

When radical acceptance

gives way to a sense of clarity,

compassion and forgiveness

become the next companions

on the way.

Step by step,

healing means practicing

to exchange old thoughts and patterns

with new ones.

Toxic and gut-wrenching images

are being let go…

Tears flow…

healing balm for the soul.

Relief and joy arrive

like early morning birds


even when the heart still

feels darkness at times.

Healing is a song

of thousand notes…
