re-connecting with one’s essence. A time to look oneself in the mirror, which is the first step toward good mental health.

But one certainly does not need to be behind the locked door of a psychiatric hospital to have a watershed moment. We all have the capacity to turn our lives around. It starts with a moment, with clarity of who we are and where we are going. Grab the moment and don’t let go.
