Holidays can be hard. Make sure you take care of you.

Holidays can be hard. They are for me. But they’re also getting a bit lighter and better because I’m not being abused and tortured anymore, and because of some good people in my life. And also because I have a voice through my books, and I know that my books help people. So…pain and sadness can ease and change. 
I hope you know that there is always hope and room for healing. That lightness and love can seep in. I hope that if you are having a hard time you reach out to others, online or in person. Or get it out through writing or art. I hope that if you have a dream you follow it. And that you always listen to your heart.

This holiday and always I wish for you comfort, love, and kindness, compassion and healing and so much happiness and laughter.

If you need to take time for yourself, do it. If you need to read or watch a movie or connect with a friend or cuddle an animal then do that. Do what you need to do for you and take good, gentle care of yourself.

I am so grateful for the dear friends I have in my life. For sweet little Petal. For my books being published and reaching readers. For being safe now. And for such a lovely online community. I hope you can find things to feel grateful for, too. I think it helps.

Love Cheryl and Petal
