Notes on Gratitude

Last year, around Thanksgiving, I wrote a post about how I was feeling out of sorts and crying all the time. I had fallen into a hole of shoulds and the bully in my brain was having a field day with me.

Notes on Gratitude

This is my friend, Sue Schwartz. Sue and I have spent many afternoons talking about BrenĂ© Brown, creativity, and the dangerous outcomes we’ve experienced by comparing ourselves to others and coming up (at least in our own minds) short. In our own ways, we’ve striven to break free from detrimental patterns in our relationship with ourselves. Art has helped us to do so.

New Book

"Your book is coming together in a great story that I believe will touch people wholeheartedly. You are taking what was, at times, a very sad and difficult journey, and creating a way to share it and encourage others to maintain the course, to hope, to keep moving forward towards a better life. That's an incredible thing. The path that led you to here, to writing this book, to morph it as you went along, is coming together beautifully. That path, like ourselves and our lives,hasn't been "perfect"... but the end product will be amazing and change lives for the better."

- Susan S.
