Day 18 ~ Writing with survival urgency… #30DayWriting

The thing about grief... I read this powerful essay by Inga M. Muscio on loss and her grieving process.

Day 16 ~ Becoming Vulnerable 30 Day Writing Challenge

Want and desire! There are so many things we want... and then there's desire.

Day 15 ~ Becoming Vulnerable 30 Day Writing Challenge

Things we must keep to ourselves! Today I am thinking about the things we share and what we don't. Our deep, dark, dirty secrets (sometimes shame filled) those things we refuse to tell another soul.

Day 14 ~ Becoming Vulnerable 30 Day Writing Challenge

Not everything we write is going to be good. Not everything we write will make sense. Yet everything we write has meaning. Everything we write has in it a hidden message that if we really pay attention to answers the questions even we are afraid to ask. Today I ask myself some really hard questions...… Continue reading Day 14 ~ Becoming Vulnerable 30 Day Writing Challenge

The past! This is the root of all things... the things that have happened to us, people we have met, our experiences (good or bad)... our past informs who will become and sometimes this can change us forever. Some people are not ready to explore the past. Sometimes its easier to fictionalize our stories so… Continue reading Day 12 ~ Becoming Vulnerable 30 Day Writing Challenge

Everything we go through... Everything we have been through... Everything we have yet to go through... All of this is in preparation for who we are called to become.
