Rebecca: Today we have JJ Carolan joining with us and we are going to be talking about her journey that took a visit to the psyche ER before she listened to her internal call. If you have ever found yourself feeling so overwhelmed that you know something has to change but yet you are putting off dealing with it until tomorrow, we have some great insights for you. As JJ shares how she went from the psyche ER due to her post natal depression to joyfully welcome the birth of her second child. Let us get started.
Your SHEro's Journey
Within 5 minutes I'd gone from writing 'feeling a bit lost today' to 'I love having clarity!'
It's funny how, that in my life, the things I've resisted the most, have ended up having the greatest meaning to me.
And I don't mean 'I don't like it' resistance, but full on 'I'm NOT doing that!!' type of resistance that might be better classed as rejection.
This was true of both journalling and having a baby. Yes they both may seem a world apart, but in reality both meant becoming intimate and honest with myself - there was nowhere to hide.
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with gold, silver or platinum.
As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.
I think it's about time that we did the same for ourselves.
