“The healers gift is from their own wounds.” – Khuong Nguyen.
This phrase speaks to myself as much as it does to Desirée. Most of her wounds are visible, scars like road maps of her journey, easy to read on her body. Then there are the wounds that are not visible, the ones that can punch her from the inside of her mind.
As painful as these wounds were when attained, they give us strength and determination to continue each and every day. Gifts not measurable in common currency, but in life lessons for personal growth and success. Embrace your scars. Love your wounds for they can teach.
