The writing of our life stories calls for us to travel back to our past which, at times, can be challenging. It is always a good idea to allow a certain amount of time and emotional distance to elapse before we attempt to record times of struggle for the page. The key is to remain in the safety of the present, to be solid in the reality of your strength, and not to linger. The boon in diving into our depths is to recover strengths and gifts that have gotten left behind in the darkness, so we may bring them back into the light, where they can shine. Reclaiming lost elements can help us heal and transform pieces of our past, and move forward with renewed understanding, enthusiasm and momentum.
