Lots to share this week, so I’ll be back with a vengeance. 🙂 I hope your New Year is off to a great start.
Recently, I was honored by a request from my writing coach, Carol Hess, to participate in her 31-day Ultimate Blog Challenge this month. Carol is a coach’s DREAM partner in using writing to grow a coaching business and her blog, Tame the Writing Monster, provides lots of great tips to do just that.
Her focus this month is OVERWHELM (I think a few of you know a little about that 🙂 ) and my guest post is entitled, “To End the War, Look… Inside.”
As always, let me know what you think.
It’s been awhile and this unplanned blogcation (as my bff, Peggie, calls it) has produced LOTS of stories about… Suffice it to say that I am grateful that the Universe sent me not one, not two, but three blog posts to remind me to just effin’ write already! And a fourth one, just to call me on my shit. Special thanks to Laura at CottageCopy.com, Danielle at WhiteHotTruth.com, ElizabethPW at ElizabethPW.com and Megan at IdanceIwrite.com for your part in changing my story.)

I went to bed last night pondering a post by my tweetie, Megan @ IdanceIwrite.com.
The stories we tell ourselves.
The stories I tell myself about me.
And the stories I tell about you. (more…)
I wrote this post in response to the Day 5 challenge of a program I participated in called “Creating Your Irresistible Presence”. The program was created by the irresistible Sarah Robinson of Escaping-Mediocrity.com. Today’s challenge was issued by Reese Spykerman of Design by Reese. It’s a long one (1200+words) and one that took me 23 days to post.
As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Today, day 5 of the program I’m supposed to look back on my life.
To rediscover me before the world told me “to take it down a notch or be quiet or stop chattering away so much or get your nose out of so many books or stop being so sensitive.”
The me I was before “society decided to suffocate the light within”.
I didn’t know what to do to move forward with this exercise.
So when in doubt, blog. 🙂
The disturbing thing for me as I read the post was this: Society decided to suffocate me before I got here. (more…)
