What does healing look like?

To me healing is LAUGHTER, plain and simple. Laughter is contagious and brings life into the body and mind. Additionally, I feel very connected to a quote by Maya Angelou that says, “We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” This quote also illustrates healing to me because to heal is a journey and it is not always pretty. Like the caterpillar journey to become the beautiful butterfly healing takes time, healing comes with hurdles, and healing is different for everyone.
