A Space of Support for Those Who do and those who aspire to!!! (#HTCTBD#urNOTALONE)
I love to read and write! I honestly believe I was created to use words to inspire, motivate, encourage and help other people excel and evolve! For the last several years I have been on a journey of re-evaluating my spirituality (i.e. my beliefs and my belief system). I do still remain a believer in a greater power that I believe is in us all, that connects us all and that we are all a part of. I call that power God/Spirit. However, what I believe about God and spirituality has changed or more accurately, has expanded significantly during those years. Throughout this transition, I have found a tremendous amount of encouragement and support on-line through reading blogs, and being able to glean from other people who've had a similar experience. For that I am very thankful. And as a way to show my thanks, I have decided to "pay it forward".
This blog was created to hopefully do the same for others as was done for me. To create a safe place to encourage and support people who find themselves on a similar life journey of transition and change! I'll blog about a smorgasboard of things including spirituality, personal development, social issues, activism, marriage, motherhood, family, friendship and whatever else comes to mind at the time I sit down to write. Because of this there is sure to be something that might catch your interest. Thanks for stopping by and if you'd like, leave a comment. I'd love to hear from you. And by all means be sure to share this blog with others you know who might be interested! And for that I thank you in advance!
Much Love & Peace
