This is so well written, from the allusion to Kahlo and onward. It speaks to me personally as well. My 3 traumatic events within the last 2 years (death of my dad, leaving a beloved home, and experiencing an accident that I couldn't prevent) spurred a dramatic personal shift within me. I've since turned to becoming a healer, deepening my spiritual quest and returning to the creative outlet of writing. Again, the Kahlo painting referenced in this article is a perfect symbol of the rebirth and catharsis that can occur after trauma. Thank you.
