This can definitely be considered heavy territory for a society that is afraid to look at trauma because it’s easier to deny our own experience than it is to own our own pain. When I think of trauma, I certainly think of those overtly shattering experiences that violate our sense of predictability and safety, including natural disasters and those disasters that are less than natural: sexual assault, child maltreatment, domestic violence, war-related trauma, medical trauma, school violence and sudden traumatic loss. - - While these harrowing events have disturbing effects on society, I also think there’s more to the trauma story.  To truly understand trauma we must understand integration by looking at an individual’s ability to process through the emotions, thoughts and memories of an experience without being stunned or stuck.  When we revisit the definition of trauma above using the frame of integration, we can draw a distinct boundary between events that we can metabolize and those we cannot. We can now ask a simple and powerful question: Is this person struggling with a shocking experience they couldn’t integrate? - - Now when I hear the word trauma, I also think of ALL the experiences that can have traumatic symptoms, such as emotional abuse, hate speech and systemic and institutionalized racism.  Experiencing racism, homophobia, or poverty may not leave someone with symptoms that meet the diagnostic criteria for PTSD, but these ubiquitous acts of discrimination have a compounding effect that can and often do result in traumatic symptoms. - - When the media chooses to discuss trauma, it focuses on soldiers returning home from war, but realizing the far more extensive scope of trauma is absolutely essential to trauma-informed practice.  It’s my hope to shed some light on powerful modalities that can compliment talk therapy and assist in fully accessing and healing trauma that aren’t often talked about in the mainstream (link to blog in profile). To those of you who never got what you needed after facing a painful experience in your life, I see you and I hope you find the support you so richly deserve.
Imagine a black woman being so poetic in how she lives and feels. Then capture it over the right beat. Add words to the pain and suffering to make it complete. Hear the bass blasting through. The title playing over in your head as Nefertiti sings the blues. Melodies of millions of women prying through. Imagine a black woman being so poetic in how she lives and feels over a flute. Revive the notes. Destiny and chaos entwining over the high tide as the hymn floats. Imagine a black woman being so poetic in how she lives and feels... -Cara Simone Sparks ⭐️ #poem #writer #writerslife #blackwomen #naturalhair #pregnant #happiness #author #wordstoliveby #dreamer #music #thelavenderbook #love #selfie

“Comparison is the their of joy.” —Theodore Roosevelt. This quote has been floating around social media a lot lately, and I’ve got to say it’s pretty relevant. I definitely think that it can be easy to compare out lives to others. Why don’t I have the income they have? Why isn’t my hair as long? Why are they more successful? Why do people pay so much attention to them and not me? When we compare ourselves to others it’s an easy way for the enemy to make us feel it’s less worthy, less attractive, like we don’t matter or any other of those yucky feelings that do not match at all what God thinks or feels about us. It says in the word to not be conformed by this world but to have our minds transformed and renewed in Christ. We don’t need to compare to anything that is out in the world, but to look up to Jesus because he has overcome the world. If we allow Jesus to renew our minds, and allow constant work in us, comparison would never feel necessary. Jesus will fill us up with everything we need.

Uplifting words of wisdom this morning 💓
Having just gone to a Disney park I have Disney on my mind. I took this picture last fall when I took the grandkids to Disneyland. 🌿 We've got Mrs. Incredible with some princesses. Princesses are all good, but give me a Mrs. Incredible any day. She's not perfect, but she's pretty darn awesome! She's had three kids and her bodies not Back to its original form, but, she straps on her unitard and keeps at it. She's a strong, independent woman who puts family first! If trials or hard things come her way, she keeps fighting! If you asked me, would I want my granddaughters to be princesses or a superhero mom? I'd say, superhero, all the way! However, I adore these little princesses with all my heart!
" I am not a woman who is interested in the joys of life. I am the one who wants to lift the curtain and look inward beyond the surface of a body , to bridge the gap between the limits of my profanity , and the edges of my purity."
These people are my fav 🤜🏼🤛🏼

From childhood’s hour I have not been As others were—I have not seen As others saw—I could not bring My passions from a common spring— From the same source I have not taken My sorrow—I could not awaken My heart to joy at the same tone— And all I lov’d—I lov’d alone— Then—in my childhood—in the dawn Of a most stormy life—was drawn From ev’ry depth of good and ill The mystery which binds me still— From the torrent, or the fountain— From the red cliff of the mountain— From the sun that ’round me roll’d In its autumn tint of gold— From the lightning in the sky As it pass’d me flying by— From the thunder, and the storm— And the cloud that took the form (When the rest of Heaven was blue) Of a demon in my view— ~ALONE//EDGAR ALLAN POE. ______________________________ #Literature #gothic #dark #darkpoetry #favorite #classic #art #edgarallanpoe #alone #emotions #feelings #wordporn #words #writer #gothicloterature #wonder #ponder #thoughts #think #wordstoliveby #passion #inspiration #theraven #annabellee

Great lesson to learn..... #lifelessons #nolimits #wordstoliveby
At 33, I’m finally starting to free myself. Until now I have lived my life doing what I feel obliged to do, what my parents expect me to do, what society says we should do. Worried about what other people will think. Scared of failing and not living up to other people’s expectations. Only now am I finally feeling free to live how I want to live and do what I choose to do. Only now am I finally starting to feel free to be me. To learn who I am. To consider what I truly want and to get to know my soul. I’m ready to embrace a new way of living, thinking and being 🙏🏼 . . . . 📸 @momentaryhappiness #free #freedom #spirit #soul #beauty #beyou #youdoyou #love #inspirationalquotes #instaquotes #mindbodysoul #liveyourbestlife #embrace #positivity #positivequotes #positiveaffirmations #wordstoliveby
