I Am Powerful and I Can Do Anything

The Haven Retreat was breathtaking and the most perfect thing I could have done in the moment I was in. When I signed up to go I was in a rut of hating myself, feeling like I was stuck and couldn’t accomplish anything in my life because of my PTSD.

Walking into a place where I felt understood and accepted instantly by all the people I was surrounded by was, by itself, so healing. I learned how to manage my PTSD symptoms and I found out that I have a loud, strong voice! I am powerful and can do anything as long as I keep taking baby steps forward.

I can’t even explain how amazing this experience was and continues to be! It changed my life and in return I will help make a difference in people lives, to pay it forward, as much as I possibly can!
