Healing Is Not Linear

“Comparison is the thief of joy.”  Theodore Roosevelt


Of all the 365 days of the year, this particular day is one that I have always filled with everything possible to keep myself from thinking or feeling. I prepare myself for it every year so I know ahead of time that I will keep a full schedule. It was on this day that I gave birth to a miracle. I had my daughter at the worst time of my life. I was extremely ill with kidney failure. I didn’t lose her that day, even though she was only a couple of pounds when she was born. I lost her years later as I was going through a tumultuous ending to my marriage with her father. We have been estranged ever since and it is a wound that will never completely heal. As time passes and I have moved through all the stages of grief, I have noticed that it has now become more of a scar than a wound.


Dear Angels, wounds that never heal often leave us feeling vulnerable and exposed. However, it is within this vulnerability that we find our greatest strengths. It takes immense courage to face our pain head-on and share our experiences with others. By doing so, we not only find solace in knowing we are not alone, but we also create a safe space for others to open up. In vulnerability, we discover our resilience, authenticity, and capacity to heal. I re-read your message from this date last year. One line stood out: “Dear Ones, forgiveness is all about gaining your freedom from the emotional impact of the experiences you have had in life.” Thank you for the reminder to forgive myself and my daughter.


Dear Ones, healing is not linear, and wounds that never fully heal teach you the importance of embracing the journey. You may experience setbacks, triggers, or moments of despair, but it is through these challenges that you learn the true meaning of resilience. Every step you take towards healing, no matter how small, is a victory worth celebrating. It is in the journey itself that you find the strength to persevere and discover your own unique path to healing.  Remember that your wounds do not define you. However, they do have the power to fuel your purpose in life. You may discover a passion for helping others, advocating for change, or finding creative outlets to express your emotions. By channeling your pain into purpose, you create a meaningful impact on both yourself and the world around you. Honor your wounds and use them as steppingstones where you rise above all of life’s challenges.


Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.


Today, I promise to practice forgiveness in all my relationships and grow through each experience.
