Love Yourself

Brynne Cogorno

Learning the art of doing whats best for myself, you know that thing called self love? I finished this painting yesterday, it was so much fun to create.  I love painting, I don't think I do it enough anymore. There is a lot of exploration that you learn about yourself when you slow down and take care of your body including it's needs and wants. Every day is a great opportunity for growth, and transformation, and I love that.

Learning the Art of Healing

Brynne Cogorno

I recently threw my back out which is no fun by any means.  I've learned so much in the past month about taking care of myself and the art of healing.  Here is what I've learned in a nut shell:

  • slow down
  • have faith
  • everything is going to be okay
  • breathe
  • ask for help
  • inch by inch
  • rest
  • forgive
  • be present
  • listen
  • trust
  • reach out to family and friends
  • meditate
  • journal
  • visualize yourself healthy
  • change up what's not working in your life
  • let go
  • acceptance
  • be grateful
  • self care
  • animals are amazing healers
  • get a massage
  • accupunture
  • physical therapy does wanders

I'm doing so much better today.  I take one day at a time. One breath at a time.  I've learned who my true friends are.  I'm getting better at asking for help.  Change can be scary, but change is good.  I have to believe that time will heal all, and I know my body is magnificent.  Sending you all lots of love, good thoughts, and healing energy.

Love, Brynne
