Growing up, I was incredibly fortunate to discover the COMFORT & HEALING of not only the Thousand Islands, but also the life-saving sense of SAFETY from being on a private island.
There are 1,864 islands in the Thousand Islands, to be exact. Which means there are countless opportunities for ANYONE to experience the fun, comfort & peace that the islands can give.
For me, someone deeply struggling through childhood trauma & undiagnosed Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, it was a BLESSING to receive such peace & rejuvenation from solid, solitary ground surrounded by a wide barrier of water.
Ever since, it’s been a true haven for me to go back to & I’ve wanted to share it with everyone I know.
Because safety is VITAL & we all DESERVE to feel it. Yes, YOU.
Today, I’m sharing it with you because I want this for you, too! It’s not only so you can join in on it with me, but so that YOU, too, can go experience it yourself, in beautiful solitude, or with loving friends & family, if you so choose.
We’re also chatting about how we can ALL channel our own ideas of what SAFETY is & live more INTENTIONALLY, so we can exist in more confidence & sustainability.
This isn’t about boosting our ego’s or putting material things on pedestals. It’s about discovering totems of safety in our lives that have healing & healthy meaning to US, so we can intentionally use them to ease our pain.
Let’s get in-touch with our BESTEST selves. See ya there!
👑 A lil’ bit about me: Hey there! I’m an actress & speaker living with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) & the stuff that comes with it. I am NOT a healthcare professional or a mental healthcare professional. I’m an EXPERT in my own situation & what works for me. My hope is that by sharing all of the tips & tricks I use that they will help you NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE just like they’ve helped me & so many others :***
