August 25th, 1994 I had my first of two back surgeries, both of which left me in a body cast for 6 months following each surgery.
Twenty years later these are the words I need to say to that part of who I am still to this today.
The words to that scared 14 year old girl because in these words I choose to heal her.
I know you are scared, but relieved that you finally have an answer to your pain. This is not the only time you will feel this gut wrenching and breath stealing bittersweet feeling. You will again feel this painful clarity on the day you receive the phone call that your last round of IVF did not work and you learn that your journey to have children is over.

Fear: Embracing It To Move Through It, Not Living From It.

Really? Really?! Off the top of my head, here are some reasons why I am a feminist. I grew up in... Continue Reading →
Robin Williams has left us. My friends and I are all in tears. Those that bring laughter and joy are usually the ones who battle in private. Acutely aware of not wanting to burden the people around them, they say little of their struggles. They keep busy, running several projects at the one time, spinning... Continue Reading →
