This year I treated myself to a new planner, the Legend Planner.
I am so excited to get back to writing, my friends. For real.
Writing helps me relax, helps me get things out of my mind, helps me create more space .
Writing allows me to think, to grow, to rest and recharge.
Writing is liberating and has been a major source of my calm, my healing and my sanity during the toughest times of my life.
As a single, pregnant mother living all the way across the country from my family, I wrote everyday.
Sometimes twice a day.
I was working the Saint Louis Country Juvenile Detention center and writing everyday.
The kids always wondering what I was doing. They knew I was getting some stuff off my chest. And they knew that I was making space - in some way, shape or form.
And they trusted me and what I did to take care of myself because O was grounded, fully expressed and at ease.
They too, would write if they got bad news from court. They would write as they got difficult...
