Hold On


Restorative Rituals for
Mental Health

Meaningful Self Care
for Moms


For you
whose light has been dimmed
in an already dark world—
For you
whose voice has been muted
in a loud screaming world—
For you
who feels lost
in a world full of mirrors—
When every warm body
is out of reach,
you have the power
to hold your own heart
with a fierce love
like no other.
You can look up
and see yourself in the
moon and stars
and know that you
are never alone.
So please, hold on,
with me, for me,
for the light,
for your voice,
for the next step,
to guide you home.
