What a huge question! Dominnique’s trauma has placed her front and centre with her Self: „It has me wrestling with how I want to be loved, consciously and curiously cultivating who I want to be and reimagining the promise of daydreaming“.
“per aspera ad astra” – through adversity to the stars.
Words can take your breath away, grip your heart and nestle in your nervous system for a lifetime. A syllable, an inflection or tone – each trigger feels like a stormy sea, with winds howling and waves surging on the surface.
But venture deeper beneath the waves and it’s here where you meet your Self. Like the deep sea your Self is always there, calm and steady however stormy things might get, and the only way to love her is through the storm.
Adversity either cripples you or creates you. Join Dominnique on her journey through adversity to her stars.
