Last week I was at a brunch to benefit the Global Lyme Alliance. The guest speaker was Ally Hilfiger, daughter of fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger, and survivor of Lyme disease. She wrote the book Bite Me about her experience with Lyme. During the benefit she said that one of her doctors said the following words to her:
In my experience, truer words have never been spoken. Follow your instincts—they will show you the path to healing.
"Healing Words" is an ongoing series with the intention of once a day shifting focus away from suffering and onto healing. Healing is a daily practice of listening to your inner voice and turning pain into purpose.
Please feel free to share words that have helped you heal or your thoughts on these healing words.
I'm Kerry (She/Her/Hers) and I am a licensed therapist, writer & speaker. This is a place to acknowledge and validate our trauma, while also learning how to turn toward aliveness and spaciousness when possible.
