The holidays are around the corner. Aside from having family time, many use this time to reflect on what they’re grateful for and what is important in life. That reflection involves transformation.
Trish Ahjel Roberts is an author who is transforming lives with her knowledge of healing. Similar to a caterpillar who evolves into a butterfly, our self discovery and healing after trauma is our human form of transformation. Her new novel, Thinking Outside the Chrysalis: A Black Woman’s Guide to Spreading Her Wings, is assisting women with knowing how to recover from certain traumatic experiences.
“When I started my own personal path toward healing, I became really attracted to the symbolism of the butterfly,” states Trish. “It really fascinated me that here was an insect nobody really paid attention to that could transform into such a symbol of beauty,” continues Trish. Trish is hoping that women gain these 4 key concepts from her new book:
- Open your lives to possibilities that you haven’t considered before;
- Take time to heal from your past while also releasing anger;
- Fall in love with yourself by getting to know the real you;
- Let go of some things, whether it be people or tangible items/goods.
This novel includes a music playlist, social media support and other resources for growth. “I wanted to counter some of the negative messaging by putting together resources to support positive growth,” continues Trish.
