We asked our staff what recovery means to them, and NAMI California Executive Assistant Judy Gion shared this quote that resonates with her and helps her feel grounded:
"Have patience with all things, but first with yourself.
Never confuse your mistakes with your value as a human being.
You’re a perfectly valuable, creative, worthwhile person simply because you exist.
And no amount of triumphs and tribulations can ever change that.
Unconditional self-acceptance is the core of a peaceful mind."
- St. Francis de Sales
