The day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~ Anais Nin

I was born Maria Faith Hargett in Kyoto, Japan. My childhood was spent in Southeast Asia. I have been reading, writing and creating for as long as I can remember.

Miko means shrine priestess and is short for Mariko, Japanese for Maria.

In 2015 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I would joke that this was my first politically correct problem. I was overwhelmed with the love and support through this journey of healing and personal reinvention.

As the song goes, if I did not go through the pain, I would not have had the dance. With this blog I intend to share the lessons I have learned and the insight I have gained through seeing myself and the world through new eyes, building a legacy that comes from honest reflection, clear intention and a whole lot of self-love and personal vision.

Welcome to my personal blog where I share how I began to tell a new story to myself with the belief that as I heal, I can also share the lessons and blessings of healing with others. Healing is not only for individuals, but that is where it starts.

I am very much in reconstruction – if you are too, maybe we can do something together. ❤
