Quote by John Steinbeck




Childhood trauma is very complicated.
It is important to be kind to yourself more than anything if you are recovering from trauma.
These are some examples of how it could show in individuals but like any other issue, the signs/symptoms can be similar to other things


It’s amazing how many adults still feel like they’re about to “get in trouble” even over something as common as a knock at the door. Our bodies don’t forget until we practice not over-explaining.

Do YOU have a strong feeling you’re in trouble often?


Fine writers on grief

“I sat with my anger long enough, until she told me her real name was grief.”

C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed, 1961

Lewis published this work under the pseudonym N.W. Clerk following the death of his wife Joy Davidman in 1960. His own name was released by the publisher after his death.

Matthew Goode is playing C.S. Lewis alongside Anthony Hopkins as Freud in the current Sony Classics movie ‘Freud’s Last Session’.

Raised Good ❤️ Eanes ❤️


Every minute someone leaves this world behind.
We are all in “the line” without knowing it.
We never know how many people are before us.
We can not move to the back of the line.
We can not step out of the line.
We can not avoid the line.
So while we wait in line -
Make moments count.
Make priorities.
Make the time.
Make your gifts known.
Make a nobody feel like a somebody.
Make your voice heard.
Make the small things big.
Make someone smile.
Make the change.
Make love.
Make up.
Make peace.
Make sure to tell your people they are loved.
Make sure to have no regrets.
Make sure you are ready.
