Be strong. Give and receive LOVE.
This is the wrap up of the book. The place that makes you say "ah, yes" this is what we need to do. It comes back to us and how we treat ourselves first before stepping into the wilderness.
We need to have self love and self respect. We need to LIKE our selves. We should want to hang out with ourselves and be able to say "self - YOU are pretty awesome, YOU have boundaries, YOU are reliable, YOU have integrity, YOU practice confidentiality, YOU can give and receive help, You are generous to yourself and to others words and actions." When you can do this then you are able to experience the wilderness and true belonging.
Take time to journal and discuss the following:
Create a daily practice of gratitude.
1. Write it down.
2. Say it out loud.
3. Share it with others.
Try this for 30 days.
Your mission of belonging, being in the wilderness and experiencing the energy from being connected to yourself and to others is not going to happen overnight. This is an adventure and being open to the journey and the process the past will unravel and reveal that strong back, soft heart and wild heart you are seeking.
