Artist's Way

“she turned her wounds into power”

“she turned her wounds into power” – r.h. Sin


I came across this quote recently and I was moved deeply by the power of it’s simplicity and words. I totally identify with this quote because it represents how I have lived my life. I am a Peer Specialist which means I am someone with a mental illness who uses my training and experience with mental illness to help others with mental illness recover. I basically use my wounds to help my peers recover. That is a powerful realization that I am really focused on realizing. I am living a dream. I am the Rainbow Warrior Artist as well, using my experience as a Native American from the Mohican tribe to deal with historical trauma and express myself as a Native American artist following Native American prophecy. I am that person and I am realizing that makes me unique.
