i, Julia M. Joseph, am not a doctor, nor am i registered with the state of Pennsylvania as a health care provider of any kind. any advice, suggestions, or wisdom that you may receive from me, via the Ohiopyle Wellness Shack, is never to replace professional medical treatments or to contradict intuition, but rather to assist you in your own inner journey to personal sovereignty. i wholeheartedly believe that healing is an inside job, and i would never claim to know the inner conditions of anyone else's body, soul, or spirit. while i may be able to shine a light illuminating the path i myself have traveled, it is still a path only YOU can uncover.
it is a path for you to claim, one of choice and free will.
i do the things i do, not because of what i might get out of them, but because they are the things that feel right in my heart. i do not love with expectation that others will love in return and i do not give of myself in the hopes of getting something back. i simply do what i do because that is who i am, regardless of anyone or anything outside of me, this is my most authentic spirit.
i give help where i can to those who are courageous enough to ask for it. this is simply what i do. why, may you ask? i do so because i am eternally grateful, grateful for a traumatic trek through the vast mountain range of suffering in my lifetime, and i am even more grateful for the serenity that i have since found from learning to choose life's valleys of surrender instead.
i believe that we all have the right to choose how we wish to experience this life, and gratitude is my choice. i choose to be grateful for all of the life that i am blessed to experience in this world.
choosing to live a life of gratitude is why i do what i do.
