How to take Small Steps to Big Change: Transforming Pain to Purpose

Once I had begun to heal from the pain of my past and feel the freedom of my true and authentic self, my passion for self-growth and helping others to find healing and personal freedom grew. So, I become a therapist. True growth takes time. It is a journey. A daily routine of self-acknowledgement and commitment that allows seeds of self-love and acceptance to grow. A flower does not bloom in a day. There is daily nurturing that allows for full potential of it to blossom. Just as flowers and plants need oxygen, so do we need to keep giving ourselves the proper nourishment so we can blossom into our full potential. How are you nourishing yourself, your thoughts and your soul on a daily basis?  For me, meditation, visualization and affirmations really changed my inner programming and responses to stress, anxiety and managing my inner self belief system. I would meditate to train my mind to calm down, visualization to see and feel what I desired and affirmations throughout my day to reprogram my negative thought process about myself and what I believed I deserved.

Action affirmation:

I will turn my pain to passion and purpose. I am a flower. The seed of transformation is blossoming in me. I am proud of myself for accepting and nurturing who I am in this and every moment.
