Sing your song. Sing it because you have to, not because of what it can get you. Be yourself and don't apologize for it, because you are the only person on this planet who can be you. At the end of the day, if you don't end up where you thought you would be, at least you showed up.
These words are by Jim Croce from the song "I've Got a Name."
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.
