“I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think” Socrates
Wishing everyone a Happy New Year and one that helps you to explore all of your creative passions, dreams and pursuits – whatever they may be.
I’m looking forward to this year….so many plans and dreams still to pursue – writing, music and lots more.
Mindful that I have been advocating on the issues and concerns of trauma, abuse and mental health since 1993, twenty years and counting. I know I will be involved in these areas of concerns till my final years. and yet, I will take the time needed to do things for my self to help keep the creative juices flowing and keep my spirit recharged and alive.
One thing that has been long overdue and kept on the back burner is the writing of my book, my memoir of my life and what I have experienced. In the final stages of finishing up a book proposal that a literary agent had asked me to send to her a few years ago. Back then I wasn’t ready, there was still so much work to do in healing my fractured mind, body and spirit – the dissociation and the losses in m life kept me frozen and in a state of limbo. I needed the mindfulness and awareness of these concerns to help me heal and move forward. Thankfully I have reached that point to move on to the next chapter of my life. I hope and pray that you find what it takes and what you need to follow your bliss….
