“Wherever you walk, leave a trail of rose petals.” - J.S. Drake


Today's featured author is overcomer and poet, J. S. Drake. Jessica and I talk about how poetry helped her move through her Dark Night of the Soul, what that is and tons more!


Key Takeaways:

Writing and being vulnerable helps your soul become free.

It’s okay to be vulnerable.

The dark night of the soul is a deep depression where nothing makes sense.

It’s okay to make mistakes if you learn from them.

“You are enough.”
