“Wholeness does not mean perfection – it means embracing brokenness as an integral part of life.” ~Parker J Palmer
How do you treat the broken places in your life? Have you tried embracing them as a integral part of life? It is possible to embrace them even while working toward healing. That’s the way to wholeness.
“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.” ~Jon Kabat-Zinn
We so often spend our effort trying to control life as if we could prevent challenges and hard times from coming our way, but we can’t stop the waves from coming. How much better to focus to on learning to surf life’s inevitable waves with skills of resilience and healing!
“The route to wholeness is not perfection but embracing the realities of our lives.” ~David G. Benner
The gold of our healing often comes more through our embrace of our lives and ourselves exactly as they are than through any movement toward a perfect ideal. Finding the beauty in our imperfections brings much more peace than the striving for perfection ever can.
“The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love. ~Hubert H. Humphrey
We have so much power to make a positive difference in the lives our friends. Are you taking the opportunities available to you for your healing and for theirs?
When our hearts get broken, it’s so tempting to look outside ourselves for healing, hoping that someone else can do that for us. But the power to heal our broken heart always comes from within. Others might help us on the healing journey, but we ultimately have to do the work ourselves. It is only then that we find the source of Grace from which healing flows.
