Coming to Your Senses

Sometimes you have to lose your mind to come to your senses. – Dan Millman

May is Mental Health Month. If you have ever struggled with mental health issues – or are struggling right now – I just want you to know that you are not alone; you are loved; there are people who care about you; and there are people (ahem… me, for instance) who have been through what you’re going through and have come out the other end of it in one piece – wiser, more empathetic, and more conscious than before.

We’re all in this together.

“You is kind. You is smart. You is important.” – Kathryn Sockett, from The Help

Drop Thy still dews of quietness,
Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress,
And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of Thy peace.
Breathe through the heats of our desire
Thy coolness and Thy balm;
Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;
Speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire,
O still, small voice of calm.
 – John Greenleaf Whittier
