My Writing Journey
About two years ago I was visiting a writing website, I knew that for me writing would be important for my healing. Yet I had absolutely no energy to begin. But I decided to sign up for their ezine. Every couple of months the writing newsletter would come to my email inbox. I would read it and wish I had the energy to do it.
Although I couldn't find the strength to do the writing exercises at the time, the receiving of the regular ezine was a way of holding that desire in my life. I continued to keep it before me for month after month. Then one day an amazing thing happened, I found myself writing an article for a website--then another and another. And slowly this site has been forming.
So if this site's ideas, exercises, way of seeing grief and loss as a journey feels like something you'd like to make more a part of your life . . . some day, I encourage you to sign up for the newsletter. It may be your once a month reminder to hold your healing journey, and some day you too may be surprised to find yourself living into your own healing.
Gems for the Journey
I called this newsletter "Gems for the Journey" because the last gift John had given me before he died was pearl earrings. Just a few weeks before he died I had been reading about how pearls are formed. I learned that oysters get a piece of debris stuck inside their shell. This piece of stone or driftwood or trash may actually cause them pain or trauma. Instead of rejecting this distressing debris, they hold it. Eventually a pearl is formed from this foreign object.
I wore those pearl earrings everyday for nearly two years. They became a prayer for myself that I would learn to hold my pain and find something precious within it. So this ezine is titled Gems for the Journey in hope that you too will find treasure within your own inner healing.
