It's been another busy week with two new essays. First, Kindred Magazine launched our December issue: REMEMBER, with pieces about lost loved ones, self-acceptance, Target tantrums, gratefulness for past sorrows, and former hopes now made reality. I continue to be amazed by the minds, hearts, and words of the women who create Kindred with me.
I often think that I could easily tackle now the things that once seemed so difficult: jr. high bullies, dating, and bad jobs, to name a few. But today's challenges keep me constantly out of my depth. My Kindred: REMEMBER article, "A letter from your older self" asks: what would future me tell myself about this present struggle?
Over at Project Mayhem, I posted "Resistance," which reflects on that oppositional force that counters any attempt at creative momentum. Sometimes we have to maneuver around it, push back harder, but I've found for myself a simpler and stronger way to fight back. You'll have to read the article to find out what it is. Enjoy!
