What Is Your Foundation Made Out Of?

Bricks, sticks, wood, other people’s opinions, “the way it’s always been done,” fears, hatred, envy, love empathy, equality, compassion, or others?

As I was writing today’s quote, I thought about the Three Little Pigs story. When life’s storms come huffing and puffing to blow your house down, will your house (you) come falling down? If your house falls apart, what have you learned in rebuilding your home?

We are all responsible for our homes. What may have worked in the past, may not work now. And it is okay to ask, “Did that thing really work in the past?

After experiencing sexual abuse, I needed to rebuild my house with something steadier. When the wolf returned, I was more prepared because I reached out to nature (God) and asked for help. I listened, observed, and built a relationship with myself. I started trusting myself and attracted the right equipment.

Sexual abuse did not break me. I became more aware of the importance of building a foundation because of my sexual abuse storm.

I didn’t know that I needed to heal, but I sought something more. I have based many of my choices in life off the thought “If one person can do it, so can I.”

You have the ability to heal; nothing overcomes you unless you let it.

The blueprint to our foundations starts in our mind and consists of our internalizations.

What have you internalized from your abuse? How is it helping you to achieve the dream you have inside of you?

To Your Best Life,

What emotions are you working with? How can they help you see yourself clearly?

I was in my mid 20’s before I learned the terms sexual abuse, incest, and many more associated terms. For years, I focused on who I wanted to be and do instead of sexual abuse statistics. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to focus on what I wanted out of life instead of what I experienced. When I did focus on labels and what else made me different from others, I had a foundation to return back to and the seeds of life-giving fruit.

Sign up for my monthly newsletter as I share the principles I learned from my experience with sexual abuse and how I am achieving optimal health, my purpose, and using what I learned as a child to weather life storms.

Until next time,
