The Light Within


I sincerely believe that inherent in each of us is the light of love, wisdom, courage, and compassion, which empowers us to transform our life, and the lives of those we touch. However, it is often our journey through the darkness of disease, the loss of a job or a loved one that we discover the light within us. It was my journey through the debilitating, dark abyss of depression that led me to discover the light within—a light that has helped me heal, and bring hope and healing to the lives of others struggling with mental health issues around the world. Confined in the seclusion room of a psychiatric ward, I learned that while mental illness can break my mind, and the mental health system can confine my body, there were no walls in this world to contain my spirit.

While I wish all of you a life filled with health and happiness, I realize that sometimes we traverse through times of darkness—the darkness of disease, loss, or grief. Remember! The next time darkness strikes, reach for the light within—the light of love, wisdom, courage, and compassion. You have the power within to transform your life and the lives of those you touch!

Wishing you wellness,
