This blog is about many things.
I write about courage and authenticity, amongst a host of other topics. I post about a past filled with anxiety, co-dependency and alcoholism, marriage and divorce. Feelings of shame, guilt, low self-esteem, fear and letting go. I also post about finding your own voice in life, finding courage to follow your own path, healing and moving through the “fog” that sometimes descends upon us as we go about life.
I also post about a healing modality called Transformational Kinesiology and various health topics be it physical, mental, emotional or spiritual.
Life is amazing! Far exceeding any plans I could have made. I’m so grateful for every experience I’ve had in life, it has taught and continues to teach me how to open up to life and allow it to flow. We all (some more than others) need the courage to speak our truth, to stand up for ourselves in life and to move forward on our own unique paths.
I love this by Brene Brown: “Courage is a heart word. The root of the word courage is cor – the Latin word for heart. In one of its earliest forms, the word courage meant “To speak one’s mind by telling all one’s heart.” Over time, this definition has changed, and today, we typically associate courage with heroic and brave deeds. But in my opinion, this definition fails to recognize the inner strength and level of commitment required for us to actually speak honestly and openly about who we are and about our experiences — good and bad. Speaking from our hearts is what I think of as “ordinary courage.”
I sometimes share personal stories as I sincerely believe that in sharing our “stories” we create a space which allows others to do the same, and in doing this, encourage compassion and understanding towards one another. This in turn could assist people who are dealing with similar issues but have not had the courage to talk about it or seek help. Just to know you’re not alone in this and the comfort that knowing that brings.
You may or may not agree with some of the topics I post about and that’s ok too, we are all here to walk our own unique path. These are my life experiences and life lessons, and my way of making sense (and sometimes not) of things. We can all appreciate this in each other.
Peace, love, light
