Your body is not a temple

I stumbled on this artwork posted by @femislay on instagram and absolutely loved it! I think this is a perfect illustration and a great reminder of how amazing our bodies [minds] are!

We are capable of restoring what’s broken. We are capable of becoming stronger after a major loss or trauma. We can grow and change. How easy though it is to forget that or just lose hope that you can?

If we don’t grow, we stagnate and then eventually die. Growth is scary and having a good support system that will give you strength for that growth is essential. Good support system is like a river that nurtures the forest [your body & mind] to grow and move forward.

How do you know that you have a good support system? How to build a good support system? I’ll try to talk more about that in my next post.

I am many things


Hi there,

My name is Veronica. I am a daughter, sister, friend, wife, mom. I am a health foodie, photographer, art therapist, licensed professional counselor…  I am many things and so are you.

I believe that we have to work hard to achieve happiness, balance and fulfillment. One of the ways to do that is to strive towards improving yourself in as many roles in your life as you can – as someone’s child, friend, sibling, parent, partner…

This inspired me to start a blog dedicated to growth and self-development. I want to open a dialogue about different roles in our life and how we can grow and work on self-improvement together.

Talk soon,
