It Was Her Time to Breathe

A friend of mine purchased a Giving Key for me that said "BREATHE". My friend knew that I needed this key during the season that I was going through. I was in the midst of the hardest courses in my doctoral program and I was having a hard time in my personal life. This season was literally one of the most difficult times in my life. Thankfully with the grace of God several months later, I conquered my season and was looking to "pay it forward". ,

Along came a patient of mine that just spoke to my heart. She was a collegiate soccer athlete that unfortunately had to leave the game due to several concussions. She came to our Center just looking for help. Little did I know, I would instantly connect with her personality. She was being treated for two weeks and during the second week she brought in her dog. Her dog, Bubbles, is her world. Bubbles brings a level of security, trust and love that very few humans can provide unconditionally. In a world that is chaotic and unstable for her, Bubbles creates peace and order. 

The day before her exit examination, I told my patient briefly about my struggles with letting go and breathing. I explained to her the process of the Giving Keys and told her that it was her time to "BREATHE". She received the key and the rest is history.
