Just wanted to finally arrive and introduce myself! My name is Ria. I guess since I'm a bit shy, I wanted to begin by sharing a little impromptu poem about my thoughts as to where I am on my healing journey as a fellow adult survivor of sexual abuse:
Surprised by the tides
though I am now wise enough to know
they turn as they do.
Once wind-struck I stood
at the jagged cliff's edge
shouldering a raging sea
now in admiration inward I see
that though harm came
and battered in a siege...
It didn't hurt the sacred things
still sheltered deep inside of me
Sea-struck i can witness
the shimmering inward beauty
and calm the cresting waves
with self love sprinkled joyfully
Self worth the sacred time spent
protecting, and honoring,
until slowly learning the right sort of trust
to eventually surrender and....receive...
Ah the shimmering and prevalent calm
let it wash over,cleanse and relieve
I'll be here now and again to get involved in conversations. I've been deeply helped, honored and healed by Katia so it's a natural extension to begin to extend help while still coached by her! I'm honored to join in the conversation!
