161 Risa Nye

Risa’s family and many others lost their homes during the 1991 Oakland Hills fire in California. She had to start with nothing and was pushed into action. Risa had to rebuild a home for her 3 young children. She found glimmers of light to try to establish a sense of a normal life. Her neighborhood and community pulled together for those families. Risa shares the following nuggets of life wisdom for those that have lost their homes:
– we have the ability to rebuild
– we discover we have the strength, we didn’t know we had, when facing life altering experiences
– practice self care
– be patient with yourself, as recovery takes time
