“Scars remind us of where we’ve been, they don’t have to dictate where we’re going?” – David Rossi
Wounded warriors are those with emotional scars from life’s tough experiences. Those wounded warriors often help others because they speak deeply with passion from the heart and soul. Abuse, cruelty, secrets, pain, anguish, suffering, and physical pain are scar sources. What you think is scarring your mind may be actually feeding your soul. The pain that you believe will control you is actually helpful and will become fuel of hope for others along the way. Is it possible to embrace your scars, and give hope to others?
“Find a place inside where there is joy and the joy will burn out the pain.” – Joseph Campbell
Loss, grief, abandonment and rejection imprison their victims with deep-seated pain that often gets stuck inside the cell walls of the mind. The beauty of life is that each of us has a place of joy inside us waiting to be celebrated. As that joy is embraced and enjoyed, the agonizing pain that locked inside turns to ashes. What a simply great recipe for living a joyful life! Take a simple step today; look inside for that place of joy!
