Healing: Part 1- The Breaks

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been on break. Not the kind where you’ve left your “real” life to spend time in life’s abundance and joy, but the kind where something that was solid was reduced to its base parts. Or the type where a deep fracture finally gave way. Or the kind where the fumes and gases finally erupted a delicate seal.

Yeah, that kind of break.

Some of you may have seen it coming for a long time through my past year’s writings of the nature of love, coming into my own, authenticity, and honoring my self. All of that ruminating swelled inside of me and finally pushed me to action. It was a break through.

However, a break means an opportunity to heal. Not so that thing can return to its former state, but so that it can be mended stronger, more durable, more cognizant of its glory and its fragility. Simply put, it heals so that it knows that it’s alive and can move forward being its beautiful self. And that’s where I am, on the journey of healing.

Now some things to note.

  • I am in the beginning stages of this journey. I have more questions than answers. I have as many fears as I do certainties. You will not find a guide in me. You will simply see my truth and process.
  • I am not going to divulge details of exactly what is going on in my life. Those of you that know me offline will understand.** Those of you that don’t what I’m talking about may miss my candor. I hope you accept me where I’m at.
  • I am committing to writing and not running away from my blog when it gets hard or when I feel less than the spiritual, clear, grounded woman who I may portray to be. I am anxious and worry too much about what people think, but writing is too much who I am. I need it and you need to read an authentic blog, not just the best and beautiful parts of people’s lives. Oh, and I’ve entered into a friendly competition so I have consequences for not writing. Y’all know how I need consequences.

So are you in? Let’s see what this month of healing brings.

**If we talk outside of this blog, feel free to reach out. I feel weird about sending announcements of what’s going on, but I’m happy to talk offsite.

    I was just thinking about you and your blog not too long ago. I’m glad to see that you’ve returned, but sad to read that you are going through some things in your personal life. Though you are not an authority, you are an inspiration. I’m embarking on a journey of choosing love over fear and seeing your commitment to being courageous in pursuing your growth and healing is an inspiration. I wish you well and I’m sending peaceful, healing energy your way. Be blessed.

      I so appreciate your words. It is scary as hell to be where I am, but I AM committed to love and courage. I’m proud of myself for taking this step even though I feel like I’m stepping off a cliff with my hands over my eyes. I am praying that God is right there to hold me, and am thankful for angels like you that are in my life to keep me lifted up.

    This! –> “I am committing to writing and not running away from my blog when it gets hard or when I feel less than the spiritual, clear, grounded woman who I may portray to be. I am anxious and worry too much about what people think, but writing is too much who I am.”

    I am feeling sad and weak and not so “for a beautiful life” and as a result I am skirting around and away from everything including my blog because quite frankly I keep feeling like folks don’t wanna hear all of THAT! all of what’s going on with me right now (not pretty…but it is what it is). Reading your blog and especially “this!” above has helped me tremendously. I don’t need to be a guide for my readers, I just need to be me.

    So glad you’re back being you!

      You know what’s a beautiful life? An AUTHENTIC life. Go ‘head and use that and keep being your beautiful self. I am honored you are in my tribe because I don’t have to fake the funk around you, and you know you don’t have to around me. I owe you some real talk time. We are about this life and we are BEAUTIFUL!


  4. I beg to differ, you are a guide just your willingness to share your truth makes you a guide. I am in awe of your bravery, you make me proud that you are my friend. Love you!
