I Can Feel the Rhythm.

Dance to a new song. Find your inner love. Reach for the sky. Open a new door. Change happens.

It’s never okay to be mistreated, pushed, shoved, screamed at, punched, tripped, slapped, raped, threatened, cajoled, taunted, manipulated, lied to…

You didn’t ask for it.

You didn’t invite it.

You deserve more.

Are you safe? If not, start there.

It’s a huge, scary step to find a safe place.

Go there anyway.

It’s okay.

Give yourself permission: protect yourself and the healing begins.

You are loved.

You probably haven’t heard that in a long time.

Look inward and believe it.

Dance to the rhythm of your heart.

Feel your breath rise and fall.

It wraps a melody around your soul.

You are more than okay.

You don’t have to figure out everything right now.

Should I stay with him? Will it ever get better? What will everyone think? Why am I so stupid? If only I had done things differently.

Let self doubt go with the what-ifs.

Let your inner confidence light a new way.

You are strong.

You are amazing, creative, intelligent and beautiful.

Dance in this new moment.

Let the pulse of your new song radiant through your soul.

This time it’s different you are love.

You will heal.

It begins with the self.

The universe will hold your hand.

You are never alone.

You are brave.

You have choices.

Sing loudly!

I can do this.

I will make a change.

I will take back who I am.

I am love.

“Listen. Rise. Dance. Break the Chain. We are all beautiful creatures.”
