Soul Writing...

This Saturday is my Soul Writing Workshop!

For those of you that know me well and have read my poetry you know that it's raw and real. I believe the only way to heal your soul is to be honest with yourself. If you mask your true emotions you're just putting a temporary band -aid on your pain. When a memory is triggered that pain is going to resurface and it's going to knock you right back on your ass again. I'm not saying you'll never have a flashback of pain in your life, but you'll be able to handle that emotion in a healthier way.

There's times when I read my past writings and shake my head at how bitter and angry I was; but it was my truth - how I felt at that moment. I needed to express it in order to set myself free and heal.                          

Don't ever be embarrassed or ashamed of your truth.

John 8:32
New International Version (NIV)
32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth not going all the way, and not starting. - Buddha

They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
