Perfect, whole, complete

You are complete! Trust yourself. You can improve upon yourself and add new skills, more compassion, more love, more knowledge, but the reality is you were born completely whole.

Art created from natural debris by Leah Oviedo

Life is complex….in case you hadn’t noticed. This summer my youngest cousin graduated high school and one of my closest loved ones had a sort of rebirth from a painful dark time.
