Are You the Author of Your Life


"I am the author of my life. Unfortunately, I'm writing in pen and I cannot erase my mistakes."
[Bill Kaulitz]

When was it the first time you realized that you were actually the author of your life? I was so caught up in simply surviving life that I paid no attention to what I wanted. I had no goals, no dreams, no ambitions . . . nothing. I was only surviving; trying to find a way to live through and then, later, escape my circumstances.  

I lived under the clouds of dysfunction. My father was an alcoholic who abused my mother. Both parents weren't around emotionally. There was also sexual abuse when I was a child and then in my adolescents two sexual assaults. Dreams. Goals. Aspirations. What were they?

It was only when I met my first husband that I started to see that I could dream and create my reality. Although our relationship didn't work out, he taught me a lot about going after my dreams. After that, I fall into two dysfunctional relationships, and serving them became my reality.  

Jump forward another 30 years, now I truly realize we are authors to our own lives. Perhaps because I know my time is limited. Perhaps because I'm fed up with what's occurred in my life. Whatever it is, I know for certain that the more I think about something and the more I speak about something, the more I know that the creation or manifestation of it will be just around the corner.

So, take it from me, think, say, and write what you want. Forget about the rest. If you can't do this, find a way to heal your pain, your past, or whatever it is, and move forward because otherwise, it will repeat itself.

You are the author to your life. You will continue to make plenty of mistakes, but continue moving forward.

Throw Out Balance and Replace it With This

On the internet running through blog, Facebook, and IG posts or videos, there is always a wave of the same concepts of discussion each week. One person/business throws out an idea to talk about that week, and then many others (to figure out what they can discuss, post, or video that week) grab onto someone else's topic and put another spin on it. That's it. If you pay close attention to the posts, you will see what I am talking about. Take a look at the weekly discussions and see the uniformity in the topics of discussion, including the quotes that are posted. Perhaps it is coincidental. Perhaps it is collective energetic thought that brings this about. But, in most cases, I'm thinking it may be more about "What do I talk about this week?" and then grab an idea from someone else.

It is difficult to find weekly, let alone daily, topics to discuss and, at the same time, give good value to your audience. I get that. I've done the same thing. I'm guilty, but…

5 Strategies to Support Trauma Survivors

TRAUMA and ISOLATION

There is no single treatment for complex trauma such as PTSD or Complex PTSD, but the cornerstone of treatment is building a collaborative working relationship with the survivor. They need to restore safety and trust in human connection. The major drawbacks to healing from chronic trauma and C-PTSD is isolation. If individuals fear coming forward (due to stigma, minimization of the events, delayed reporting, an oppressive society, self-shame or public shaming) and how they may react to their environment, they are left to figure things out on their own. There are many individuals that never receive formal treatment and, instead, invest in their own methods by trial-and-error. I did because there was nothing out there. Also, anytime I'd go to the doctors office, it was said that "It was all in my head." Back then in the 80's and 90's and early 2000's, no one could see the enduring effects of chronic childhood abuse, repeated sexual assaults…

Our NOW Is Littered With Our Past

"Trying to resist, change, or avoid the enormous influence of the past keeps us foolishly focused on it. Yet we're reluctant to leave it behind, reluctant to transform the pervasive hold it has on our present-time lives. Not doing so, however, results in an endless continuum of living a "now" that is littered with the detritus of the past. There is no better arena to watch this play out than in our relationships."~Nancy Zapolski
