“Wherever you walk, leave a trail of rose petals.” - J.S. Drake
Today's featured author is overcomer and poet, J. S. Drake. Jessica and I talk about how poetry helped her move through her Dark Night of the Soul, what that is and tons more!
Writing and being vulnerable helps your soul become free.
It’s okay to be vulnerable.
The dark night of the soul is a deep depression where nothing makes sense.
It’s okay to make mistakes if you learn from them.
“You are enough.”
