Left Wondering….(a continuation of what needs to be said)

I have written two different posts in the past few days–both of which, I was too afraid to post.  It seems Lisa may not be as “unmasked” as she believed.  My new #bff, Peggie, has (ahem) suggested that perhaps I write a series of blog posts to help me with this story that has decided it must be told.

I go back to the post, “What Needed to be Said” as the title of the emerging series.  I hope you’ll stay with me to see where it goes.  And most of all, please share what is coming up for you. If we are going to heal our deepest wounds, we must give light to our stories.  Share them in whatever way(s) we can and know that in doing so, we are helping each other.

Let me think about that a minute.

Who am I kidding?

I SUCK at letting go. (more…)

What was I thinking?

Or more appropriately, why did I put my a** on the line and enter this contest?


Plain and simple.

When the suggestion came to enter the contest (from someone I respect deeply), I was shocked.  The only reason I had given her the blog address (remember, I don’t promote this) was to get some feedback about my next step.

You see, I was actually going to shut the blog down.

I felt the time had come to move on, but during a meditation in the midst of my most awesome week, the voice shouted “NO!  There are gems there.  Do NOT hide them.”

Man…I love and hate that voice all at the same time. (more…)
