Reading through this post, I was impressed with how in-depth the author wrote. There were super on point questions and behind the scenes scenerios. I hope this broadens your self awareness and builds your self love.
The man, and his dog, sat on the front porch swing, and watched the sun set, below the far away hills. Sixty-seven years, Mr Silversteun lived in this house. It was the one his parents, Bertha and Fred Silversteun, bought right before his birth.
On December 21, 1952, in the wee early morning hours, a nine pound 11 oz baby boy gave his first cry. Bertha and Fred were beyond themselves, for the doctors repeatedly announced they were unable to have children. Within a few hours post birth, his nurses diagnosed Charles with SSHL (sudden sensorineural hearing loss).
Though there were moments of self loathing, he intentionally lived through his vision. Graduating, with honors, from a prestigious university for the deaf, he worked as a Sign Language college professor. In addition, in his free time, he diligently invested into his passion for painting.
He created images in his mind, inspired by what he saw and read. Though most couldn’t quite understand him verbally, there was no questioning his art. He painted from his soul.
Chloe sat in the center of a nearby wood. Two hours ago, as she traveled to her therapist’s office, her social anxiety rapidly escalated. Since returning to civilian life, she’s severely struggled with her PTSD. Here, she can sit in silence and not fear. Here, she can actually be and feel ok. Since Sandra, her confidant and progressional ear, met her three years ago, Chloe has grown to accept herself. Three times a week, now, she embraces her Shinrin-yoku, forest-bathing. It’s apart of her newly incorporated self-care plan.
