    Dear Stacy,
    Wow! Thank you for your steps to freedom: embrace, enable, enhance, elevate! I too am a writer and have finished writing “my story” called: “Spirited Voyager: A Memoir of Motherhood Mission and Ministry.” As my counselors and doctors have discerned, WRITING THE BOOK was my journey to healing! Excruciating at times. Tedious also. Ultimately liberating. I wrote down my three lists: milestones, conflicts and desires. MOST ALL OF THOSE appear in my book in one form or another. I recently bought myself a refrigerator magnet which says: “A strong woman looks a challenge dead in the eye and gives it a wink.” The quote is from Gina Carey. There is a picture of a young girl with a bow and arrow pointed towards a target. She has one eye closed and one eye opened as she aims her arrow directly at her challenge. I would love to send you some more pictures like that~! Thank you!

    That’s awesome, Susan! Thank you for your kind words. I’m excited you did the three lists! It’s true, the healing journey is all about writing your stories…even though a lot of people never publish. They don’t have to 🙂 It’s a matter of getting it out of your head to heal. I love the quote too!

    I always wanted to write but I was told 45 years ago I was not a good writer but I’m going to follow your suggestions and stop believing something I was told so many years ago. I’m going to find my Authentic self.

    So helpful and uplifting, thank you so much, Stacy Brookman and Richa Badami. I pray God will bless you both in Jesus’ name for taking the time to share and encourage others that feel stuck and want desperately to heal.
    You are both right about this special time to start change and healing: I learned yesterday it is was Rosh Hashana a few days ago (known as New Year’s Day of the Jewish calendar). How cool is that?

    Simple and practicle steps to start processing and healing. Deeply appreciated .
