Wellness Crisis

Myra faced the daunting task of dealing with depression. Initially, she refused to accept it for what it was because of her ideology surrounding the illness. But eventually took responsibility for her healing and wellness.

Daily Self-Care Ritual

Currently, she doesn’t have one but is working to incorporate the practice of meditation into her morning.

Favorite Quote

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. ~ Theodore Roosevelt
