Through these pages, I offer concepts for living a passionate, purposeful, and fulfilling life. Having struggled with undiagnosed depression since my teenage years, I hit the darkest period in my early 50s when suicide often seemed the only solution to salve my pain. I was what you may call a high-functioning depressive. In spite of my outward achievements, unless you were a confidante in my innermost circle, you had no idea the inner intense anguish, emptiness, and hopelessness haunting me.
Through my quest to fill the void, I dove deeply into the dark abyss and discovered a little light. That light had been inside me the whole time, but depression had darkened it to indiscernible. Polishing through periodic practice, it began to shine more brightly. Over time, I was transformed and healed.
“The wound is the place where light enters you.”
Through the services and resources on my site, I offer you hope and healing from self-loathing to lasting self-love, including:
Links to resources that I found helpful in unwinding underlying causes of depression
Blogs on a variety of topics
My book, From The Shadows: A Journey of Self-Discovery and Renewal, chronicles the techniques I applied and the path I followed to heal my depression
You are already enough. One day, you will know this, too.
Join me on this journey to ignite and blaze bright your inner light of sparkling self-love.
