An evening of Inspiration

The Development Effect is a new business, set up by two remarkable women. Their modus operandi is to inspire, give back to their community and empower women and girls. I was privileged to be asked to talk at their inaugural event a while back. I sat alongside Michelle Cashman, an extraordinary singer/songwriter. Michelle has been there. You know, ‘there,’ that horrid place of loneliness, depression, anxiety and chaos not of her making. Not only does she write songs which reach deep into your soul, she creates podcasts to uplift others who have been through the fire. Her blog can be found here. To listen to some of her incredible songs, follow this link. When you are going through the fire- the heat searing your flesh- you tend to wonder what the point of it is. Often, there isn’t a point. When your flesh has cooled and you are alone with your wounds, it can give you leave to demand that your pain mean something. To be able to write, sing and talk about the fire gives it such a meaning. You will inspire others, and they in turn will inspire. Perhaps the fire itself is a pointless and cruel pit of flames. Perhaps that doesn’t matter. What comes after, that is what is important.

  1. Inspiring, as always. Listen, I’m sure you get these so often you’re tired of them already, but I couldn’t not think of yours when I think of my favorite blogs. I know you likely have WAY too many followers for this, but I nominated you for a Liebster.

    Here are the details: https://dearlilyjune.wordpress.com/2015/09/24/deja-vu-all-over-again-in-which-i-share-the-love-once-more/

    Here’s how I introduced you: Hummingbird Redemption–I am positive this lady has at least 2,000 followers. But her heart is so open and kind, she deserves 200,000. Give or take a few.

    Here’s how reading your blog makes me feel: 🙂
