Becoming Vulnerable 30 Day Writing Challenge ~ Day 28:
We are coming to the end of our thirty days and so many themes have risen for me around home, relationships, dreams, memories, fears, hopes and love.
This is what I am thinking about this morning.
I just got out of the most amazing writing session with incredible young women and there is no better affirmation than to hear a young girl say to me, “I really liked your exercise!”
I think this is all we could ever hope for…
Who doesn’t want to be liked?
Who doesn’t want to be loved?
Wanting to be loved is not a vain concept. This is what I am thinking about as each of the girls shared with me their hopes and dreams. One girl shared a story about her mom and finding balance… balancing work and home… she told us that her mother was her hero and how much she really loves and admires her. They each wanted this reflected back to them… they each want to know that they are loved and that they matter.
We each have a story. We are each important. We each matter. This is what I am thinking about as we wind down on our writing challenge… we have been walking together through this roller-coaster of time and emotion.
Let’s think about some of the most significant moments of our lives… where we have been and what it has taken us to get to where we are.
Lets take a deep breath… STRETCH…. sit somewhere comfortable… don’t think about it… allow what comes up to guide you. We will start with a warm-up, set your timer for (6 minutes):
Warm-up prompt (6 minutes): I REMEMBER… (BEGIN!)
Deep breath– release…
Day 28 prompt: IF I COULDN’T SAVE… (Set timer for (10 minutes each prompt)–BEGIN!)
10 minutes: If I couldn’t save… (once timer is up move to the next prompt, if you get stuck just write the prompt again)
10 minutes: In the ninth grade I discovered…
10 minutes: When the man who lived next door…
Tell me about your process… How do you feel?
I look forward to reading your responses.

And so it is. Namaste. Aché
