I’m fairly new to writing professionally, but I’ve always enjoyed putting my thoughts on paper. I’ve found journaling is a way for me to open the door to self-awareness and understanding, helping me on this life’s journey. When I shared these stories with fellow writers, I was surprised the emotions and release the reader experienced. They encouraged me to submit for publication. Here are two personal essays (true life stories) picked up by magazines.
My Father’s Love
My personal essay, “My Father’s Love: You’re One of the Good Ones”, was published by The Mindful Word in August 2017. This story recounts my father’s last moments and how it has affected my life. This is my absolute favorite photo of the two of us.
A Difficult Decision
Sometimes life presents us with a difficult decision. I kept putting off the inevitable until I finally feared for my life. My first published personal essay, “Leave an Abusive Relationship”, is about a pivotal point in my life. It was published in the fall 2015 issue of Give Yourself Permission Magazine.
Writing Life Now
I continue to chronicle my life with the goal of completing a memoir. Reiki will certainly be a part of my life story. I invite you to follow my life journey by following me on your favorite Social Network or clicking on the icons at the bottom of this page.
