Anything is Possible #Write28Days

When you are in the midst of brokenness, everything can feel impossible, especially change and healing.  When I was younger, I would often hear adults quote Henry Ford's  "Whether you think you can or you  think you can't, you're right."  There is some truth to that, because you aren't going to try to heal if...

Anemoia #Write28Days

I was looking up synonyms for nostalgia and came across a word that I had never really heard before. In fact I couldn't find a definition in a dictionary other than the urban dictionary online, although many posts talked of anemoia.  Anemoia is nostalgia for a time you’ve never known. It can be fun for... Continue Reading →

Broken Relationships #Write28Days

There are relationships that most of us want to have in our life. Relationships with loving parents who accept us and are proud of who we are that give us a sense of belonging. Or a relationship with extended family grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins that give us a sense of connection with our heritage. Relationships... Continue Reading →

It isn’t exact #write28days

I wish that healing was an exact science. Unlike most sciences, there is not a magic ratio to healing that given in the right dose, for the right amount of time in the right combination. It would be nice if it was that simple.If you knew that given a certain amount of the right medicine... Continue Reading →

Ponder This #Write28Days

  Ponder a verb meaning think about (something) carefully, especially before making a decision or reaching a conclusion. Many times, especially when I'm not at my best mentally because I am hurting and broken, I make poor decisions and reach wrong conclusions based on faulty information. How we think about ourself and our circumstances and... Continue Reading →

Why would God allow me to experience this?  I am often met with that question.  How a God who is suppose to be good, who is all knowing, and all powerful can permit all the evil that is allowed in the world.  It is so easy to want to put it on Him.  For a... Continue Reading →

Un-learn the learned #Write28Days

There are many lessons that we learn from being broken that as we are healing have to be unlearned. I have heard it quoted that research shows it takes 20 to 40 positives to overcome every negative thing we hear.  Most people are not broken by being encouraged and uplifted by others.  Instead there are...

Explore the Word #Write28Days

The Bible is the living Word of God. In my own healing process, it has been the single best tool in my journey. Although I grew up memorizing scriptures and hearing the stories found in the Bible, it was only over the past two decades that I have learned that I can apply it to... Continue Reading →

Enough is enough #write28days

Only you can decide when your need for healing is greater than your need to hold on to what broke you. You alone can start the journey to healing as you choose to start the healing process.You are the only one  who can decide when enough is enough.  Only when you are ready to make...

Building Community #Write28Days

Building Community can be hard when you are in the broken space, but community is another piece needed for healing.  Many things that break us, tend to isolate us.  Secrets we are told to keep from abuse.  Separation from others in domestic violence.  Relationships torn from addiction.  Shame, blame, guilt are things that keep us...
