Wellness Tip:  "We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty" - Maya Angelou. Know that change and challenges will not be stopped by our beauty or our healing. The best parts of us were created with tears and tough decisions. Take care of yourself at each part of your process because self-care isn't about being pretty. Self-care is about knowing how to survive and thrive when things get ugly.
