A story for every scar

A story for every scar

There is no dress rehearsal for life. It’s all happening now in real time. We don’t get a practice run or a do-over. We are no single-use plastic containers that serve their purpose and can be tossed out. We each are valuable beings, here to learn and grow. Each of our evolution matters, but we don’t get there if we can’t make mistakes, stumbles, faults and flaws, and scars. We need to see the beauty of imperfection, since there is no such thing as perfection in the first place. There is no us and them, you and me. We are all human beings, connecting, trying the best we can. •

There is a story for every scar, a birthmark for the new self, born, rising up and healing. Stop cowering in fear of rejection, stand up for who you are, proud of every scar whose treads contain the magic of transformation, rebirth and renewal. Let your body tell the love story that starts when you look in the mirror and say ‘Hey beauty, I see you shining back at me’. Love unlocks all the barriers, but it has to start with a soulful embrace of yourself. Show the world your humanity in an unconditional, relentless embrace. The war of the world might end by making peace in your own heart. ‘
