Pieces of me

Inspiration for those who warrior on


Friends,

You may have noticed that I haven’t been writing much lately. I’ve been wrestling with my depression, and like so many of us sexual assault survivors, I’ve been struggling with those memories and stirred up emotions. I’ve written about it, but am not ready to share yet.

Today, however, is a good day, and I have something most exciting to share. I’ve just had an article published on one of my personal favorite sites, tinybuddha.com.

Here’s the link to the article: CLICK!

A brief background, though. In July, I made it my goal to submit some blog articles to other sites and get published outside of my little pieces-of-me blog. I did that. This is the third article that has been published on another site, now.

This one, however, had a rocky start. I submitted it to three other websites, which all turned it down. After each submission, I rewrote it, tweaked it, and thought about posting it here for my audience rather than put it out there to be rejected again.

The topic of beauty in brokenness just wouldn’t leave me alone, and I felt like it was the kind of topic to which a broader audience could connect. So, I stuck with it. After the third rejection and rewrite, I was convinced that it was good now. Like really good. I not only decided to submit it once more, but to an even bigger and broader-based blog site than the other three had been. Tinybuddha.com!

The process behind getting this article to light of day has itself been a story of brokenness to beauty.

I’d love to hear what you think of the final product.

Here I am again being a writer who doesn’t write. Picking up the pen and then dropping it before its energy singes my fingers. Picking up the pen and tapping the unusable end on the paper, because that’s safe enough. There are words in my head, mind you. Always so many words. Some even congregate …

Recovery is a dance between old habits and new intentions. Choose which leads wisely.

I just signed up for this free online “Self Discovery” workshop with Deepak Chopra and thought it might be something my readers would be interested in.

From their ad:

“Deepak’s going to be showing us how to:

Get rid of negative thought patterns and experiences
Really find ourselves and our life’s purpose
Attract abundance and new opportunities (hello dream life!)
Tune into our higher wisdom

Deepak will also be teaching us what “SynchroDestiny is and how we can tap into it.”

Be you, and when people walk away because you are you, say thank you.

Be you, and when people ask that you be a little less you so that they don’t have to walk away, then you walk away.

Be you, and when a bridge is covered in warning signs and caution tape, break out the matches.   

Summer’s coming to an end, and I have a summer time story for you. It has a spiritual lesson in kindness, gratitude, and our interconnectivity, but there’s more to this story than that. I hope you will indulge me as I tackle a new topic today. The story starts as just another fishing story from …

starting line on a race track

As surely as the tides come in every day and the Earth spins around the Sun, day will break, revealing a “first day of.” For every inhale, there is an exhale. For every end, there is a beginning.
