The Grace-World

To face my trials with the Grace of a woman, rather than the grief of a child.   Veronica Shoffstall.

I’m renaming the non-trauma world.

In the Grace-World there is ease, forgiveness, flow, change and connection.  There is earthiness and possibility.  There is goodness.

In the Grace-World pain does not destroy us.  We can trust because there is cushioning if the trust gets broken.  In the Grace-World there is always a second chance.

In the Grace-World I will be okay.

I’ve started living in the Grace-World and whenever I fall back into the Trauma-World the Grace-World will bring me home again.  Because this is where I belong.

    I love that quote “with the Grace of a woman, rather than the grief of a child”. It says so much. No wonder you have created the grace-world for yourself. What a lovely concept. Grace. It implies so much including strength and emergence.

    Thank you so much.

      Thanks Claire, and the world is holding for me. It’s been one of my major turning points, probably because it doesn’t require a struggle – it just is.
