This is Poekie the Panda.
A couple of years ago I got Poekie from my boyfriend. In that time I was suffering from heavy night terrors and because we didn’t live together yet, Poekie was a gift to help me get through the night.
One of the nightmares, a recurring one I had for years and years, was about a stairway in my childhood home. It was a dream about something that happened to me in my past and it took lots of therapy to get to the point that it didn’t bother me anymore.
I decided to make this weeks picture symbolic and placed Poekie on a big stairway, right in the center of something I feared once in my life, as a reminder how far I’ve come in the last few years!
There is always a way, even as simple as a little help from a stuffed animal!
