We are all survivors. From loss, from challenges, from addiction, from big change, from illness, from trauma, from oppression... we're human, and shit happens.

Whats important is that as we heal, we acknowledge our survival, regardless of the grace involved - or not. Surviving is not always tidy, and it can be easy to forget to notice our resiliency, our beauty, our victories.

But when we do make the choice to notice and acknowledge and even ritualize our survival and resilience, our creativity and persistence, we experience a fuller picture of who we are.
