About Mentoring and Recovery

Me. Pearl.

E.E. Cummings is quoted as saying:

The hardest challenge is to be yourself in a world where everyone is trying to make you be somebody else.

But how do we learn to “be ourselves?”

In most cases,  everything we know about how to ‘be ourselves’ is learned from observing and interacting with those around us.

More simply put:

Mentoring happens.

Even when we don’t realize we are being mentored, we are always watching, always learning from, always being influenced by others.

The key, of course, is to choose our mentors wisely. It is my hope the posts you will find here might support you in doing just that.

With great respect & love,

Shannon & flock

We’d love it if you joined our extended flock of positive interspecies mentors & friends 🙂
