Wounded Healers

Wounded Healers…

They are not born and they are not made…

They create themselves through conquering adversity, trial and error and extreme pain and suffering,

They conquer fear and find a way to speak their truth even when they are afraid.

In doing so they shine light for others who are lost and feeling alone, and in return their inner light ignites with renewed purpose.

A purpose greater than they ever could have imagined.

This post was inspired by a few ladies of which story I got to learn more about recently. Each one has inspired me in ways they could not possibly know, and although I would love to mention them here, each one is so special and deserves their very own post. I was thinking perhaps in a “Celebrating “YOU” segment. I know some of you still remember this, the time I ran a weekly post to celebrate and point out the ones in our life’s that make a difference. I think it’s time to revisit this and do some celebrating. You sure deserve it, so stay tuned.

Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

      1. Hey! Oh my! Are we twin flames or something??? It’s been a crazy, unpredictable last year too! Especially the six last months! So much change (and challenges!) in such a short time! But, the new thing there was I fought less against the flow and in most cases accepted to go with it. To cut long story short, I am still “flowing”. Let’s see what happens! And I am now going to see what happened on your side when I “wasn’t there”…

      2. It truly sounds it and from the looks of it we both experienced quite a bit last year. You know what, it wasn’t easy, but yet we grow as we continue to flow along. Sending you best wishes for a better year. We both deserve a break. Hugs

  1. You look like a sad angel here, beautiful soul sister. Such powerful writing again, so profound and from the heart. We are all learning to trust and claim our power, we are being strong and vulnerable at the same time and it is making our hearts sing. At the end of the day, no matter how tough it gets, we are blessed.
